After the very long journey I arrived on Monday around midnight in my hostel in Buenos Aires. The next morning was quite rainy so I decided to stay in the hostel. As it stopped raining, I explored the microcenter and Puerto Madero, the harbour of Buenos Aires.
I have been told that there is kind of a black market for US Dollars, where you get a much better rate then the official one (up to 60% more), I changed some money for the next days. On Wednesday I visited La Recoleta, including the cemetery where Eva Peron (aka Evita) is buried. In the evening I got a message, that Nicolas, a french guy with whom I was already traveling in Mongolia last summer, will be in Buenos Aires as well on Friday. With this message I decided to stay one day longer in BA. Finally the best thing so far was, that my luggage arrived in the evening 🙂
Thursday I got up quite early and went to La Boca, an old district in the city, which was built by Italian immigrants in the 19th century. First stop was visiting the Bombonera, the famous football stadium of the Boca Juniors. Attached to the stadium there was also a museum, which showed some of the cups, won by the Boca Juniors and told the history of this football club. The rest of the day I didn’t do much, but organized my next days. Friday I walked around in Palermo, which is for sure more fun in the evening then in the sun during lunch time. I saw many Restaurants and boutique shops. In the afternoon I met Nicolas for lunch and a small sightseeing tour.
On Saturday it was finally time to get on the bus to Bariloche, where I should meet some friends of Salzburg.
