Peak Season
I have hit peak season! For the first time during my travels I am experiencing difficulties with booking coaches and accomodation and need to book in advance. It's not all bad though, means I get to stay a little longer than planed in Rosario and I get to revisit Buenos Aires (as the fisrst  availabe coach to Puetrto Madryn is not until the 9th from the capital).

I have spent today sight seeing and locating the parks in Rosairo. It has taken me a few days to warm to Rosario. I arrived in heat and to over cast weather. For my first night I opted to stay in the nearest hotel to the bus terminal recovering from my New Year, which was spent in Buenos Aires.

Rosario
During my travels I had heard many stories about the beautiful ladies of Rosario (needless to say Orhan was keen to make Rosario one of his stops beore heading back to the Uk- I promised to get photos, and will let you be the judge!). The guide describes it as the perfect Argentinian city. I wouldn´t go that far. There are nice parks a river to walk by and manmade beeches. There are many buses available which makes exploring the city easy.Having spent a few days here I have  managed to get used to bus stops being in the most unlikely places (just before cross roads). And located the correct coloured bus!Yesterday i visited the beach, after some confusiton of what bus to catch i eventually arrived. I was informed it was the 153 bus that took you there. I tried to board it but was informed it was the 153 but the red one, then i was told that iit was infact the 153 but the black bus. After a while of waiting i began to doubt whether a red or black bus exsitied as all the buses here are yellow! I discovered it  was the writting of the 153 on the bus, not the actual colour of the bus that they where referring to. (The red or black bus never came!) 
The beech consisted of sand next to the river, it was nice to exchange a bikini for trousers in this heat! It was  a nice relaxing day where I read and managed to burn my feet!

My time in Rosaio is alsmost concluded. In summary I like Rosario but it isnlt my favourite city in Argenita.I have visited the river, the beach the parks, burnt my feet and almost kung fooed a poor old lady who grabbed my arm taking me by surprise (anticipating a robber to my  relief it was just a  dear old lady  wanting some  help crossing the road).
