Tourist in Buenos Aires

Spent Saturday cycling around the city and visiting the main attractions: La Boca, Plaza de Mayo, Puerto Madero, Plaza Dorega etc. Saw La Boca stadium where Maradonna used to play and the Casa Rosada where Evita stood at the balcony. Great!

Met some Catalans guys and some Irish guys at the hostal and we hung out for a while. The Hostal had organised a Barbeque for the evening and we all tucked into some of the famous Argentinian steaks and Choripan (bread and sausage).

After eating we went out to a club in Puerto Madero with about 20 people from the hostal. Pretty big party that went on until after the sun came up. Needless to say the sightseeing suffered the next day. I wasn't that dissapointed though cause I'd packed so nuch in the previous day!
