Trip Report So Glad to be Back in Buenos Aires

Jump to last reply

We're back in our 'summer in the winter' home...and so pleased to be here.

It's so great to be back in BsAs. Having left the bitter cold of the NE of the USA, we found ourselves splat into the record-breaking heat-wave down here. I may have been the only person in town who wasn't grumbling about the humidity - I like it. My slightly wavy hair got so curly, it looked like I had a perm. Then it got downright chilly - with howling winds and rainstorms - and now it's just plain gorgeous.

We spent some days settling into our apartment in Palermo Botanico - our 7th year in BA and our 3rd in this same departamento...felt so at home right away; the apartment, the barrio, the neighbors and the stores....so nice.

Today, DH and I followed one of our favorite, early days traditions: we took the collectivo to La Recoleta, went to the Palais de Glace where this year's exhibit of ceramics, tapestries and fanciful displays of unusual materials, artistically and whimsically presented was again, a treat. And free, too.

Then we meandered up Posadas to El Sanjuanino for our favorite empanadas with salad, wine and beer...just as good as ever. Next ( after the wine and beer, remember :) we went to the Recoleta Feria on the grounds in front of the Cemetery and the Basilica Nuestra Senora del Pilar. The Cemetery is one of the prime sites in BsAs, and I think the Basilica is well worth a visit - even a pause to think, rest, pray.

The feria has quite nice merchandise this year...and we took advantage of some of the items for gifts and, well, for ourselves too. I need to get back there without DH in tow !

So, a sunny, interesting, fun and productive day in La Recoleta. Now, I really feel as if we've arrived. Looking forward to the next months in Argentina and Uruguay.
