What you've been doing

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, Livingstone.
