One of Buenos Aires´ "hipp" areas is Palermo, especially known for its great nightlife. Obviously we were interested in checking that out as well. So one day we chilled out at the hostel for a bit longer to gather some strenght and then walked around 45 minutes to Palermo where we enjoyed dinner and then a bottle of wine and some life music in an art-gallery-bar. Another night we spent watching people dance Tango in the park... I could have stayed forever.
Buenos Aires is a city to fall in love with - it is cool and romatic and fashionable (and expensive) and everyting you want. But we had to move on at one point, otherwise we will never end up at Machu Picchu in six weeks. So last night we took a 10 hour over-night-bus to Cordoba. "Over-night-bus"- since Vietnam a word that makes my alarm bells ring. Memories of an absolute nightmare. Happily I can say that South American buses are nothing like that.
About Cordoba I can only say that it appears as pretty much the opposite to Buenos Aires. All streets are plastered with fast food restaurants and cheap shops that blare out loud music and cover the streets with their huge signs and billboards.Doesn´t look like the town you want to run around in after dark, so will try to avoid that.
