      Welcome to Buenos Aires

      April 14 in Argentina โ‹… ๐ŸŒง 19 ยฐC

      Nach gut 12 Stunden Flug bin ich heute morgen in Buenos Aires gelandet. Ich konnte fast die ganze Zeit schlafen, daher bin ich auch sehr erholt angekommen.

      Mit dem Taxi wurde ich zu meiner Unterkunft gebracht. Da ich ab morgen in einer Sprachschule spanisch lerne, wohne ich während den nächsten drei Wochen bei Claudia. Ihre Wohnung ist mitten in der Stadt und sehr gross. Sie beherbergt hier jeweils mehrere Sprachschüler und Studierende. Ich bin gespannt wie das Leben hier sein wird.

      Nachmittags hat mich meine Mitbewohnerin mitgenommen in die Stadt und hat mir die Schule gezeigt und dafür gesorgt, dass ich eine Buskarte und eine SIM Karte erhalte. Nun bin ich doch sehr müde und freue mich auf das Abendessen und aufs Bett.

      Arrivรฉe a Buenos aires

      November 27, 2022 in Argentina โ‹… โ˜€๏ธ 28 ยฐC

      Après 10h de bus me voila arrivée a Buenos aires!

      J’ai retrouvé Sarah et Romane, on est allées se promener au quartier chinois et on a mangé dans un resto super.

      Ce soir on retrouve peut-être quelques amis à elles dont Ugo un copain de prépa!

      Je reste ici pendant deux semaines et le 12 décembre on commence le voyage à Salta avec Romane.

      Buenos Aires

      June 20, 2023 in Argentina โ‹… โ˜๏ธ 13 ยฐC

      Getting to Buenos Aires was a significant challenge. We originally were planning on bussing but after a short bus ride to a connecting town took 12 hours instead of 4, we opted to fly instead. Argentina is the most expensive country we have been in and thus, we decided to only spend a few days in Buenos Aires.

      These few days were lovely. We didn't do much other than walk and explore the city and try lots of bakeries and food. Buenos Aires is the city that felt most similar to Canada and we both agreed it would be such a nice city to live in. I loved our few days here and feel as though we only got a taste of what this city has to offer. When planning this trip, Chile and Argentina were places that we decided were more expensive and very long (longer bus rides) and consequently we decided to save them for a later trip. Having said that we had to go through Argentina to get to Brazil so we got a few days in Buenos Aires. I'm glad we got to see a bit of the city even though I know that I want to come back for more!

      Dengue

      April 3 in Argentina โ‹… โ›… 19 ยฐC

      Just as my trip seemed to have passed by without any mayor set backs I got hit by Dengue. This whilst Elena is visiting me and so in stead of us enjoying Buenos Aires and Iguazu she has been nursing me. This virus took me out viciously, what seemed as a flu turned out quickly to be worse and after fainting a couple of times it was clear I had something more serious than the flu. So after hoapitalisation and confirmation that I have Dengue I was recommended to stay in bed for 7 days minimum taking paracetamol and 2.5ltr of water. I am starting to feel better, no fever any more. I think we are on tge recovery trajectory now.Read more

      Impressionen der letzten Tage

      November 5, 2023 in Argentina โ‹… โ˜๏ธ 22 ยฐC

      Wir sind immer noch in Buenos Aires. Das Schiff hat den Hafen Zarate schon wieder verlassen - unsere Wohnmobile stehen demnach im Zoll! Und sollen heute abgefertigt werden. Morgen früh um 7 Uhr ist Abfahrt im Hotel, dann geht es zum Hafen - und dann wissen wir mehr. Wir sind alle aufgeregt. Ein Teilnehmer hat gestern Abend die Mitteilung erhalten, das seine Wegfahrsperre nicht deaktiviert werden kann. Das Auto scheint trotzdem im Hafen zu sein! Wie haben sie das vom Schiff geschleppt? Ich glaube das wollen wir nicht wissen. Um uns abzulenken fahren Jürgen und ich mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln in den Zoo und nach Chinatown. Am Abend erleben wir noch Demos und traurige Fussballfans. Wir haben uns aber überall sicher gefühlt.Read more

      El Gordo Vegano

      January 24 in Argentina โ‹… โ˜€๏ธ 27 ยฐC

      Both of us have been dragging our butts for the last ten days or so because of one of those nasty summer colds.

      Feeling a little more human today, we ventured to Belgrano, a new part of town for us, to try out another highly rated vegan restaurant, El Gordo Vegano (The Fat Vegan). Not a Michelin Guide restaurant, but a cozy little place that serves us really good vegan versions of comfort food.

      Brenda had their spinach and mushroom omelet, and I had an enormous "Churrasquito" sandwich, a grilled slab of grilled seitan smothered in chimichurri, grilled peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, ranch dressing and crispy potato matchsticks. As if that wasn't enough, it came with a side of slaw and a heap of roast potatoes.

      At the end of the meal, our server tried to convince us to try one of their small croissants for dessert, but we cried uncle. We did, however, opt to bring two "little" croissants home to have with dinner. When the waiter handed me the bag they were in, I almost dropped it because they were so unexpectedly heavy. Each croissant filled a bread plate, was filled with pastry cream, and was topped with vanilla icing and diced almonds. There was no dinner tonight, only the croissant and a cup of tea.

      The Fat Vegan indeed!

      Invisible hand & Tango

      March 11 in Argentina โ‹… ๐ŸŒง 23 ยฐC

      In Buenos Aires there is Tango dancing in open air at La Glorieta. Fantastic place to watch the pleople dance. I took one lesson, and understand this is one of the more challenging dances to learn. At least with Salsa you can hear the rythm of the music...with Tango you are drifting in an ocean of music.
      Apart from music visited the Museum of Bella Arte, which has quite a collection of Rodin and other art jewels. I think however that Rodin is probably one of my favourite artists. To round of my thoughts cannot help to add the "invisible hand" of Adam Smith that is gripping Argentina.
