So finally got my bottom into gear and stopped getting us lost… also did more research about the cool places to go so had a really exciting day today.

After getting lost temporarily, a kind couple took pity on us and helped us towards the right bus to La Boca… we had no coins, so bless them, they even paid the 2 peso for us (about 40 p!). She said it was all about being caring towards one another.. you never know when you might need it in return. I took it to mean it was karma for those wet wipes I left with the ill guy on the plane!

The aim of La Boca being that we wanted to buy tickets for tomorrow’s footy match. Got to the stadium only to find out the cabbie had told us a porkie and we couldn’t buy them today - but tomorrow. Before the match. DOH! Anyhow, didn’t matter as we pottered around the famously colouful Caminito - it was fantastic. Had us a big old lunch outside watching live tango, and listening to all the hustle, bustle and live music… this is the Buenos Aires I had hoped for.

Managed to get ourselves (yeeehah!) on a bus back and are just preparing for an evening’s live tango show at Cafe Tortoni which is renowned for a charming, old atmosphere and intimate venue. Meeting up hopefully with Cerri who was on our plane. Can’t wait!

The dog walkers you see everywhere... that take about 10 dogs with them at all times!

Colourful Caminita

Crazy Caminito

The country may change, the 'blue steel' look does not!
