Last Day in Argentina

Jump to last reply

We have had the pleasure to have been in Argentina and Uruguay for more than 2 months this year: we rented an apartment on the 24th Piso, in Palermo, with wonderful city views and the most gorgeous sunsets...and we plan to return to this same apt. next year.

We took twice weekly Spanish lessons with Gabriela Ferrante - our teacher from last year; Gaby met with us in our apt. one time per week and then we went on excursions together, both in town and out of town, speaking and reading Spanish. Our most recent adventure in Spanish was a visit to the Palacio Duhau hotel in Recoleta. we read some Spanish articles about the Palacio sitting in the gorgeous terrace - jardin, enjoying the teas.

My favorite aspect of our trip was reconnecting with friends & making new ones. We spent one very nice day in Pilar with a couple who have become very good friends; they prepared us a traditional assado on their lovey terrace. We also were pleased to meet other friends at various times - some were visitors and others Porteños. They were a BIG part of making this such a memorable visit for me and my DH.

I benefited from so many posters' suggestions on this Forum - GRACIAS to you all.
