The first half of my stay in Buenos Aires was pretty great.
Exploring some of the neighbourhoods and learning about the city’s history on a walking tour was a lot of fun. I was never really a fan of tours but when I heard the word ‘free’ I jumped on it.
I’m glad I did though. Suddenly add some background info to all the buildings, parks and statues around you.
The British gals and I kept pretty busy on the second half of our stay.
We spent some time checking out La Recoleta Cemetery where many important, wealthy and aristocratic people are buried. It was very to walk amongst the mausoleums where you can actually see the coffins inside. So eire!
We also chowed down on some steak, a dish Argentina is known for! It was HUGE!!
While Julia and Leila slept, Katie and I spent our last day visiting Casa Rosada (The Pink House). A government building, it is where Eva Peron gave her famous balcony speech and as it was open to the public for the first time in many years we couldn’t leave the city without seeing it.
In the end, Katie Leila and I say farewell to Julia as she will be staying longer in the Buenos Aires, then hop on the bus to head to our next stop: Mendoza, Argentina.
The vineyards await us!
Do you ever visit cemeteries when in a new city?
