Made it to Buenos Aires without any hitches thankfully. . . . . .but it was tiring,
around 14 hours total traveling. We are still wide awake though and will be off to
dinner at 7 pm (early for BA where 10 pm is more the locals time to dine. . . and
then dance tango!
View from our hotel room includes Torre Monumental, formerly prior to the
1982 Falklands War named Torre de los Ingleses (Tower of the English).
It was a gift from the local British community to the city in commemoration of the
centennial of the May Revolution of 1810. The tower is Palladian style, decorated
with symbols of the British Empire, featuring the thistle of Scotland, the English rose,
the Welsh dragon and the Irish shamrock.
Tomorrow we head out - two bus loads of mostly Brits - on a 4 hour
sightseeing tour of this huge city of around 3 million people + a million more
who come to work in the city daily, and known as the Paris of South America.
Hope to get more photos to share before flying further south to
Ushuaia to embark our ship on Thursday.
Have a great evening.
