So I have been in BA for exactly a week, I have had such a fun time here.... Its a massive city and lots of very interesting things to see.
I ventured out on a bike tour on Tuesday which took group of us around the Southern part of the city. We visited La Boca, the home of La Boca Juniors football team, and also to some amazingly painted buildings, very colourful and a bustling part of town.
We also went to San Telmo, where I have previously visited and they took us to some major sights like Casa Rosado, home of the president. This is the Pink Building which featured in Evita, where she (Madonna) stood on the balcony and sung "Don't Cry for me Argentina!"
After this bike tour I won another bike tour to do on Thursday, and this took us to the North of BA which is a much nicer part of town, Palermo and Rocelleta. I really recommend doing something like this tour as you get to see the major parts of the city, and learn some history and very interesting facts of the city.
Lujan Zoo is a crazy crazy Zoo, nothing I have been too before and I dont think it would ever be allowed back home! Ill add some pics for you too see. Its 2 hours away on a bus from BA, so I would recommend going quite early as traffic is terrible coming back into BA in the evening....
Tried a steak last night too, was very good, but Im not a steak eater so to be honest I wouldnt know whether it was amazing as everyone said it was! :0) It was huge though and I was still full from it this morning!
Anyhoo, I am all packed up and ready to start my ravels to my next destination Mendoza! I have enjoyed every minute of BA but I am ready to leave this city and see some more of Argentina!
Until then Ciao for now
