So what else have we done in Buenos Aires? We've eaten out at nice restaurants a couple of times - there's a strong Italian influence on Argentinian cuisine, so it's easier than usual for veggies -, and gone shopping. Yesterday we went out to the famous cemetery at Recoleta where posh porteños are buried: finding Evita is easy - just follow the hordes of American tourists. D F Sarmiento is also there. In the afternoon we watched Lost in Translation at a nearby cinema. The title in Spanish is "Perdidos en Tokio" - which is kind of ironic if you think about it...
Today - our last full day in Buenos Aires, in Argentina, in South America - we took the Subte south of town to San Telmo to visit the traditional Sunday antiques market, and then we walked even further south to La Boca, where we looked at the stadium of Boca Juniors, a famous Argentinian football team, and strolled along the colourful streets. There must be a Juniors game tonight, because there were lots of noisy blue-and-yellow football fans wandering around.
We caught the bus back to the Plaza de Mayo, where we stumbled across the shooting of an advert for something called Kas, a fizzy orange drink. Downtown, we finished our souvenir shopping (gotta spend those last few pesos!), watched some tango - and we're now on the way back to our hotel, exhausted. Hunger has struck, so we're going to grab a pizza en route.
Tomorrow we'll catch bus numer 86 from Avenida de Mayo out to the airport. Our plane leaves at 16.10, taking us back to Heathrow via Frankfurt. Back home soon!
