Arrived in Buenos Aires today, on the high speed ferry from Colonia, Uruguay. The ferry only needs 50 minutes to cross the river plate. My first impression was: "Hey, you dropped us off in the wrong place - this is not South America, this is Europe or the U.S.A." because port area is full of shiny modern glass skyscrapers which I haven't seenm in South America yet.
But I really loved since town from first sight. And because Argentina is suffering from a very bad economic crisis which devuluated the Argentinian peso to less then one third its former value it is also very affordable to travel here.
I am looking forward to some big city life. Will keep you updated. Toodaloo,
