Finding Our Way Around

Monday, day 3 in BA. Struck lucky yesterday, there's a weekly market in San Telmo every Sunday, a whole bunch of interesting stalls, street music, tango, local food - pretty cool. Jetlagged in the evening, made the mistake of going to sleep for a couple of hours early on. Walked miles today (Monday) taking in the must see sights of central BA, it's a lot like a southern European city, but more run down. That's been one of the biggest surprises to us - how poor Argentina seems to be, many of the buildings are falling apart, the pavements and roads are crumbling and there are a lot of homeless people. Food continues to be great, found a local bar for lunch, ordered by pointing - my Spanish is woeful and the waiter's English was about the same. Staying in a hostel for a couple of days now, new experience for me, but a good one. More BA for the next couple of days then we're heading out toward Iguazu Falls and Brazil.
