What’s new, Buenos Aires? I’m new, I wanna say I’m just a little stuck on you. -Evita the Musical
So we have arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina and with no time to spare. With only one day to spend exploring the city there is just so much to see.
Day 8: Contiki South America: Buenos Aires, Argentina
First stop on our city tour, La Boca, a run-down part of town that has been transformed into a culture mecca and tourist feeding frenzy. Famous for lots of things, including one very good football team.
So colourful, so bright! I want it all.
I dressed appropriate.
Next stop, a mausoleum? Well, this wasn’t just any mausoleum; it is where Eva Perón, the most famous women in all of Argentina was buried.
Now I had never seen a mausoleum before, nor had I known what they were used for, so I was pretty excited for this stop.
That and I am a huge fan of the musical Evita. Gotta love Antonio Banderas and Madonna.
Evita Peróns grave. Duarte was her maiden name.
After our city tour we had a bit of free time to shop. So for three hours I ran around the finest shopping districts in Buenos Aires, desperately trying to find a suitable outfit for tonight’s farewell dinner and tango lesson. But alas, I failed in finding any sort of ensemble. I have never had so much difficulty finding womens clothing shops, but after careful observation it became quite apparent why.
Argentina is full of good-looking, well-dressed men.
I concluded my shopping complains after realizing this.
Our evening consisted of a wonderful Argentinian Tango lesson, show and dinner. Thanks Argentina, now I have a burning desire to take up more tango lessons. Partly due to the factthat I love the music.
Alas, all good things must come to an end, and so does this trip. I hope you have enjoyed coming along with me on my adventures, watching my videos and reading my blog posts.
Thanks Contiki, for the trip of a lifetime!
