What a beautiful City!
A definite European feel. We were immediately struck by the wide boulevards and tree lined streets. One of the main thoroughfares is considered one of the widest in the world.
Jacaranda trees in bloom everywhere. We were impressed with the large green áreas and mature trees set aside, entire blocks in some places, for the people's enjoyment.
A City of about 3 million, we barely scratched the surface of the various neighborhoods.
The neighborhood we stayed in, Palarmo, is filled with upscale shopping, lovely parks and busy outside cafes and restaurants.
One evening, we enjoyed a dinner/tango show with Carol and George in an old theatre. No pictures of the dancers, but they were fabulous!
With today's economy, we expected both Argentina and Uruguay to be outrageously expensive. Instead, we were pleasantly surprised. Perhaps leather products, clothes and food in both countries cost more than Ecuador, but not over the top.
After a few days in Buenos Aires, we headed back to the port for a boat ride to Montevideo, Uruguay.
Part 2 of Buenos Aires is next, with more pictures.
