Day 2 in Buenos Aires

February 26, 2015 Leave a comment

Our second day in Buenos Aires was mainly an orientation day. We walked all over the place, got lost, found our way again, and had a great time. Getting lost is a good (but possibly dangerous) way to learn a city.

After hitting a few of the main shopping streets, we ended up in Puerto Madero, where the old warehouses were refurbished and made into shopping and eating locations. Nice place to stroll along the water and see the sights.

We managed to get out of Dallas between two winter storms.   Lucky we made it!  Had an uneventful flight, although sitting in an airplane for 11 hours (and a 3 hour jet lag) does tire one out.  Just the same, we went for a walk in the San Telmo neighborhood, where our hotel is located.  Tomorrow we explore further.
