Buenos Aires (20-21 Dec 2014)

Buenos Aires calls itself the Paris of S. America. French architects during the war years came here to continue their careers.

We did find some blue sky among the rainy days. The current poor economy shows up in poor basic repairs like sidewalks, rubbish disposal, and homelessness. 

The people in our tour group are interesting and most all have many past tours with Overseas Adventure Travel. This is definitely a different way to travel from what Ray and I are used to. We'll see. 

I'm hoping to visit this yarn shop right down the street from our hotel on Monday. 

Our group ate dinner last night at this old restaurant with a long and interesting history. Great red wine and nicely medium rare steak, enough red meat to last me awhile. 

More to come...
