There are some beautiful parts to Buenos Aires. Caminito in La Boca where the houses are rainbow coloured, San Telmo with it´s Sunday antique market filled with buskers and stalls and restaurants and bars, Palermo SOHO with it´s chic restaurants and bars, Palermo Holywood and Palermo Viejo with it´s beautiful parks, or the horse races where i won (not much but was a win none the less!!), Recoleta where Evita was layed to rest, or the magical centre where you can shop all day at the Gallerias Pacifico shopping mall on Cajje Florida, people watch or see a tango show at the old famous Cafe Tortoni as we did or visit the momumnet of Buenos Aires, the Obselisco, or the Old theatre Colon or sit at a sidewalk cafe and watch on old tango singer perform for you
I wont even go into the bars, clubs and nighlife as i dont think this site allows enough characters and i dont have the HOURS to write about it all. But i will say this, if you are in Buenos Aires make sure you stop for a meal at Magno in Palermo for the best meal and atmosphere you will ever experience. I loved that place, Fatboy and Tiesto live DVD´s playing while a DJ above the door spins vinyl..... groovy...
I also go the chance to see Maradonna´s old club `Boca Juniors` play verses Velez and won 3-2 at an away crowd that ended in riots. Wicked!
I met some great people in Buenos Aires and had a great time with them. Including my new Brasilian friends who called me the "anjo" or angel. I still dont really know why though....
Great City, great time. Definately a highlight of the trip.
