Buenos Aires

I’ve been in Buenos Aires for a few days now, staying at the Palermo House hostel in the Palermo Viejo neighbourhood with my friend British Nan, her friend from Sheffield Alice, and a load of assorted other folks from the Argentina, UK, USA, Peru and Cuba. The hostel is very friendly, although I suspect we are the oldest people here! Nan & I are sharing a bizarre room on the roof of the building with lots of windows and views across Buenos Aires rooftops that is only accessible by a rickety spiral staircase leading up through a hatch in the floor.

Buenos Aires is great — the people are really friendly, and it’s definitely a party town. We’ve done a little bit of sightseeing — Evita’s grave in the Recoleta cemetary, for example, and the Casa Rosata. We’ve also eaten a lot of really good steaks, and haven’t been to bed before 5am yet. Tomorrow we’re supposed to be going off to an Estancia (Ranch) in the country with horses, barbecues and a health spa, so that should be fun too. We’re also trying to see a football match, although the timing might be tricky.
