We Heart Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is considered by some to be the ‘Paris of South America’ and reminded us a lot of Barcelona and even New York. Sidewalk cafes, museums galore, amazing architecture, and bustling nightlife…whichever city you want to compare it to, Kelly and I absolutely loved our time here.

We crammed in a lot during our twelve days in Buenos Aires and attended the obligatory tango show, visited the MALBA art museum, Recoleta Cemetery and La Boca, strolled through the Japanese gardens, shopped at the San Telmo Feria, and had coffee and churros at the infamous Cafe Tortoni, all while gorging ourselves on steak, red wine, and pasta. The funny thing is that we barely scratched the surface and hope to make it back one day to see even more of this fantastic city.

More than anything though, Buenos was a nice opportunity to stay put in once place and feel like we were at ‘home’.  It felt good to unpack our things and be able to cook dinner and watch movies while drinking wine and lounging on the sofa.  We’ll miss our little apartment in San Telmo and having our own bedroom (despite the uncomfortable bed), our own kitchen, and our own bathroom, but we’re excited to move on and explore more of Argentina…
