Buenos Aires, Argentina
Spent the last 4 days of my trip in Buenos Aires.. felt like i was back in civilization oafter the trek from Lima all the way through Peru and Bolivia. After the rest of the trip was at a pace akin to 'race around the world' decided to take it easy and soak in the atmosphere of the city. Felt like i'd been transported back to the early 80s (in a good way) with women in fur coats and people smoking in restaurants. Sunday afternoon in San Telmo is postcard stuff - antiques fairs, spontaneous tango dancing in the streets, plenty of souvenirs to buy and a gigantic steak lunch.
