The next day was Saurday, we got up early to get the bus and ferry to BUENOS AIRES!! That nght wewent out for my birthay to a club called Pacha, all i neon fancy dress that the girlshad organised as a surprise for me. Loads of people from the hostel came too and it was BRILLIANT!! We didn´t leave till 7am, absolutely fantastic night out, everyone really enjoyed it. It was dance music which isn´t our usual thing but we had such a laugh it didn´t even matter!!
The next day Barn, Rick and I somehow managed to drag ourselves to see Boca Juniors!! That was brilliant, the atmosphere was electric (although I could have done without the customary spitting from the away fans, haha!!) The end score was 1-1- and Boca had a gol disallowed at the very last second, they deserved to win!! Such a good match though, we really enjoyed it!!
I´ve been on this computer for AGES now uploading photo´s, ha ha, so I´m off for now, but I´ll be back soon to keep you posted!! xxxxxxxx
Kia Ora!!! Greetings from Kiwi land!! (Sept 26th) Before I talk about that I'd better finish my Argentina stories!!
Buenos Aires for us was predominantly PARTY PARTY PARTY!!! ha ha, seriously, you don't even go out till about 1am there, its manic!! Good fun though!! Slightly more cultural persuits were mine, Ricks and Barn's trip to Caminito, a gorgeous little road (and no mom, I didn't know thats what it meant!! thankyou!! x) in la Boca, where there are loads of little cafes and people Tango dancing in the street! (Check out Richardson's moves in my photo!!) Erm...I'm sure we did something else cultural...ha ha!! Well we went for Argentinian steak at a resturaunt in San Telmo on our last night, and we had lots of Argentinian steak and Argentinian red wine at a BBQ at the hostel (hostel Clan, best hostel ever!!) That counts, right?? We also checked out the Palmero area....and ended up in an Irish pub because we couldn't understand the menu anywhere else!! ha ha!! Oh and Rick, Barn and I went shoppping to Florida street. which is quite famous, and to the vintage shops on Santa Fe, and we walked down Avenue 9 de Julio at least 5 times a day and saw the monument (pure coincidence that its right outside McDonalds...he he!!)
The clubs there weren't really to our taste, but we still really enjoyed ourselves!! Who's have thought you'd get loafers at a drum and bass night??!! ha ha (Bahrein, on the Tuesday), and we went to a place called club 69 on the Thursday night...to watch a transvestite show, all good fun!! ha ha!! The wednesday night we spent at the cinema (rock and roll, ha ha!!) watching Batman (luckily for us, they have Spanish subtitles, rather than dubbing the movie).
