Buenos Aires

Today we took the Subte (subway) into central Buenos Aires.

We saw the Casa Rosada, the office and house of the President of Argentina.

We stopped for coffee.

We checked out the exhibits in the former central post office which is now an art museum.

Meals here in Argentina have been super cheap. Tonight we ate at a restaurant called Voro Cranes. Our steaks with two sides and a bottle of wine cost $47. The beef has been the most tender and tasty that I have had in a long time.

Montevideo, Uruguay to Buenos Aires, Argentina

Today we took the ferry from Montevideo to Buenos Aires. The ferry is a catamaran and goes fast, more than thirty miles per hour. The speed was impressive. I’ve never been on such a fast boat.

We are staying in a very nice area of Buenos Aires. There are lots of nice restaurants on the tree lined streets. We went to a great barbecue place.

Afterwards we went to a jazz club nearby called Thelonius and listed to a great group.
