Buenos Aires, big city, warm heart. Grand avenues (e.g. 13 lanes of traffic), but like London and Paris a city of districts and ‘high streets’. Stayed in a chic little hotel in Palermo Hollywood, but after a delayed and early evening arrival our exploring was curtailed by a thunderstorm, though we did manage to find great steaks in a Parilla (Argentian BBQ restaurant).
On Friday we explored the Plaza de Mayo, the historical centre, San Telmo the oldest and most picturesque district, the tourist quarter of La Boca in the old docks, and nearby upmarket Palermo Viejo.

As in the photos its all about shop fronts, cafes, market stalls, tango and an artistic but laid back aesthetic. Very friendly and helpful everywhere, despite our mangling of Spanish.
