    Recoleta Bezirk in Buenos Aires

    November 6, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Spaziergang nach Recoleta, vorbei beim 200 jährigen Ficus Baum zur Basilika de Nuestra Senora del Pilar. Daneben ein Besuch auf dem Friedhof Recoleta wo auch das Grab con Maria Eva Duarte de Peron ist.
    Mittagessen, ein feines kaltes Buffet im sehr noblen Hotel Alvera Palace.
    Auf dem Rückweg besuchen wir noch das El Ateneo, ein wunderschönes, altes Theater. Dieses wurde umgebaut zu einer Buchhandlung, in den Loungen kann man Bücher lesen und auf der Bühne ist ein schönes Cafe.Read more

    Tigre time!

    December 18, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Went on an airbnb experience to the Tigre delta today. So much fun!!

    Took metro then train. They have orderly queues as marked on the ground - well organised train stations. Train was a bit late possibly due to the national strike (more on that later). Got there on time and found our hosts (and eventually found the other chap - a British techno/drum musician).

    Cruised along the river with our hosts and enjoyed some of the interesting history of the delta. Went down little canals beneath trees and saw little houses. Saw the supermarket boat that goes around the houses selling water and groceries etc.

    Eventually made our way to a restaurant on the edge of the UNESCO marshlands, with a view over to Buenos Aires in the distance.

    Had a fantastic schnitzel with chips and salad, followed by brownie and flan with dulce de leche. A lovely time although we got a little bit sunburnt (yes even Radi who'd never been sunburnt prior to this).

    On the way back we stretched out on the front of the boat as we cruised more back streams. By this time there were riots and people throwing rocks at police in Buenos Aires so our host very kindly gave us a ride back to town, which was very nice. Except for the part where her car broke down by the slums, only to then be towed to a spot in town right near the riots...

    Was fine though, we just walked back to our accomodation which was in the opposite direction.

    A great day overall!

    San Isidro

    November 9, 2017 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Last day in Buenos Aires. Had a lovely morning breakfast in the courtyard at Silvinas, learning some Spanish. A walk around the block in the sun with Silvina and the dog, admiring all the different architectural styles of the houses. Nora picked me up and we drove to San Isidro, a lovely part of town by the river, big detached houses, pavements with grass verges, felt a bit like Vancouver.
    Nice fresh air. Went to a restaurant on the river where there is a distinctly Californian air. Had another yummy homemade lemonade with passion fruit and mint. Chicken sandwich and huge salad. Good potatoes are difficult to grow here, so only a couple in the salad as a delicacy!
    Then the long drive back to Fontezuela. Poor Nora surviving on 3hrs sleep after taking niece to party at 12pm and picking her up at 5am!
    Stopped off half way at a leather store, packed to the rafters with bridle ware and cowboy rugs, and bizarrely army surplus - shells etc.

    Tigre Markt, Regenpause, Asado

    February 17 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Regen ist vorher gesagt. Daher ist nicht viel geplant. Die Schwestern gehen ein bissl Shoppen, im Stoffgeschaeft und auf dem Tigre Markt, wo aber leider fast alle Läden zu haben. 2 Mate Becher gibt es trotzdem. Asado Jackomo zaubert am Abend trotz Regen ein tolles Asado. Aber auch mit Provoleta. Das war übrigens der einzige Regentag in den 2 Wochen!Read more

    Zurück aus Uruguay

    February 19 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Colonia del Sacramento ist übrigens die älteste Stadt Uruguays und ihre Altstadt wurde von der UNESCO zum Weltkulturerbe erklärt. Und die besten Fußballspieler Uruguays leben hier. Noch einmal genießen Lisa und Patrick das schöne Hotel im Colonialstil und der pittoreske Altstadt bevor es wieder zurück zu uns geht. Aber auch wir haben für stressfreie Erholung gesorgt. Unser neuer Babysitter ist mit Johnny und Noe daheim, während wir noch einmal im MALLOYs eine Ceviche am Río genießen.Read more
