First week in Buenos Aires

05th February 2013

Arriving in Buenos Aires at 6:30, the LAN pilot surprised us by announcing the temperature was 1 degree. Can it be so cold? Yes, it was!

.

Our first week we spent hours wandering around the city getting our bearings – easy enough as Buenos Aires is laid out in a grid. There is an excellent metro system called the Subte (Subterráneos) which can take you most places, but we preferred to walk.

.

We’re staying in Palermo, a leafy suburb with some cobbled roads and many restaurants, bars and boutiques. Next week we’ll move to San Telmo, another old suburb, to start our Spanish lessons.
