I LOVE Buenos Aires! It is my goal to one day teach at the Lincoln School in Buenos Aires. I think I could stay in that city for quite a few years and still be content. It is so international!
I traveled around Argentina for three weeks during my December break last school year. I will be posting my notes about the places I visited throughout this week.
Dec 17-18, 2012 I arrived at 2:30 AM in Buenos Aires. I stayed with a Couchsurfing host named Luchi. I had to take a taxi from the airport to her house for 250pesos or about $50 USD because the Metro wasn’t running at that time.
That day I took a bus tour of the city by myself, had dinner with my host, and slept for a few hours (I had to share her bed) before I left for the airport at about 3 AM on the 18th.
I was there again from Dec 30- Jan 2, 2013 I went to the Recoleta Cemetery with some people from my hostel (I wouldn’t mind exploring that cemetery more), a tango show, explored La Boca and Palermo, and celebrated New Year’s Eve. Do not stay at El Sol de Recoleta, it was too noisy and really dirty. Instead, go to the hostel I stayed at for three nights, Portal Del Sur which is in the center, beautifully restored, had a great breakfast, and is full of great people.
