Argentina - Buenos Aires

Tania and I are in Argentina. I was teaching here last week so T decided to take a few days and come with me, and we stayed the weekend.

Leaving today and will arrive back in Toronto with just in time to start work on monday morning after a We hour flight.

Buenos Aires is a beautiful city. Lots of motorcycles, but I wouldn't say motorcycle "friendly" as that may suggest that the traffic was something other than an apparent narcissistic gnae of Crazy Taxi. Traffic here is very hedonistic... If there is a hole, put something in it.

We almost got scammed a few times..once by a cab driver whose rates were climbing too quickly, with no registration visible. We gave him 100 pasos to pay for the inflated ride and he took it then said he couldn't change it, apparently returning the same note. T had memorized the last 4 digits of the notes though and knew this wasn't the right one so asked for the original back. There are quite a few fake notes here apparently. That wa only a minor blemish on an otherwise fantastic trip.

I certainly want to come back and see more of the country, on 2 wheels !!
