Flag of Argentina  , Capital Federal District,
Monday, September 1, 2008

17 hour bus from Puerto Iguazu bring us to Buenos Aires which is an all night party city. Time enough going out at midnight, any earlier may lead to unpredictable results...iŽd say. Hence there is a distinct lack of photos from Buenos Aires. Millhouse is one of the big party hostels of Buenos Aires, good place to start the night off and meet people. DoesnŽt mention the next door porno theater in the brochure though, makes for interesting listening 24/7. Won a sappy bike tour free from a free hostel table quiz so we saw some of the city by day too, Evitas grave etc.

Went to a Boca Juniors football game in La Boca stadium which was nuts. It was a final against Argentinian Arsenal so we werenŽt sure who to shout for at first - until we got to the boca terrace. It finished 2-2 but it was a second leg and Boca were 3-1 up from the first leg so Boca won. Goal celebrations were standard enough but before and after the game celerations were insane. Non stop chanting and flares, fireworks, fence climbing and total chaos. Tickets cost us 24 pesos (5 Euro) - sweet!
Just got some photos from a guy we went to the game with - thanks Robbie!

Re: Sweet
Didn´t bring camera to the game coz we were warned it was really dangerous but it was actually really friendly crowd, would have been no problem. We just got some photos off an english guy we went to the game with though and they are up there now. Millhouse water sprinkler, in millhouse, but of course John.
