We wandered around Retiro this morning - transport hub where trains, buses, ferries and subway converge. Nice parks and some interesting buildings.

Staff at Art Factory Hostel ($13/night) are great and the art work is impressive but the floor so badly termite damaged that we were in constant fear of falling through and the broken glass, tack and nail in the shower stalls will not be missed.

Funniest taxi to the airport... Cars drive on the opposite side of the road over here and it can be a little disconcerting sitting in the passenger seat especially when every driver subscribes to the Wayneo school of
thought (road markings and speed signs are clearly "guidelines only") so as the driver was putting bags in the boot Wayne headed to the driver's seat out of habit. The taxi driver thought this was "muy loco" so he put Wayne's acubra on and proceeded to laugh hysterically all the way to the airport in between helping me with my Spanish and pointing out all the important sights.

Flight to Iguazu delayed a few hours and having trouble getting Buquebus website to make any sense so not sure we will be able to get to Uraguay Saturday - we will see.
