visiting the birthplace of Che Guevara and Lionel Messi – Rosario

The touristic highlights of Rosario where definitely the Monumento de la Bandiera, the house, where Che Guevara was born (which was actually quite boring) and all the Parks along Rio Parana. Lionel Messi, who was also born in the city, doesn‘t have a monument in the city center so far…
As I was the only non-spanish speaking person in my hostel, I decided to take the weekend quite easy, relax and update my blog. On Saturday evening I finally managed it to see my first football game in South America: Newell‘s Old Boys were playing Crucero del Norte. First I wasn‘t sure how and if I can get tickets, but in the end that was easy going. In the afternoon I had to queue for about 20 minutes and bought a ticket. In the evening I went to the stadium and had a good view to the Tribuna Popular, where all the fans were going mad.
More of this game can be found here….
Monday morning I went to the bus station to get my bus to my next destination, Cordoba.
