Besides Christmas, New Years and Christopher and Susan’s visit, we had a great month in BA! We saw some tango – first in a square in San Telmo, then we took a lesson and went to a milonga (tango club) and finally, we saw a show at Café Tortoni, a famous café downtown.
We had a welcome surprise one day when one of Brandon’s old coworkers messaged him to let us know he and his wife were in BA for vacation! We met up with Gareth and Betsy a couple of times while they were in town.
Every Thursday afternoon in BA a protest takes place in front of Casa Rosada (the president’s house) by mothers and grandmothers whose family went missing during the dictatorship in the 70’s.
We also went to BA’s Chinatown and La Boca neighborhoods!
There aren’t a lot of good skyline views in Buenos Aires, but one of them is at the top of Palacio Baralo. We did a tour one day so we could go to the top.
Even if we didn’t have a planned place we wanted to go, we explored different neighborhoods every day and are sad to be leaving this beautiful city!
