Had a nice meal and found a nice hostel right in the centre on the 1st night, reminds me of Hollys place in Geneva. Walked down the main street and relaxed in the park infront of Casa Rosada where Evita used to appear on the balcony. Had a walk to Palermo, the upmarket end of town full of nice european style apartments, little boutique shops and a nice park next to recoleta cemetary where Evitas grave is. We wandered around the most ornate cemetary ive ever seen and found Evitas grave (which is more like a tomb) covered in flowers. Spent a day looking for a police station after having my purse pickpocketed and then searching for the Quantas office to change Toms flight so he can go home :(

We went to a Market and did a bit of shopping down Florida where we saw street dancers dancing the tango.

After moving rooms 4 times and waking up to find Aftab and Tom covered in bedbugs bites ( I've never seen anything like it, thought they both had measles all over their body and face) we decided to spent the last few days with Tom in a luxury apartment enjoying the spa and bedbugs free room.

It was so sad when Tom left us, we all went down for breakfast and then waved him off outside :(

Me and Aftab couldn't face another bedbug episode ( don't know how I got away without bites) so we moved into a smaller apt in another nice hotel. We went to an open air horse show and spent allot of the days in the spa at the hotel overlooking the city.
