Buenos Aires - last night of tour 2 & between tours 2 and 3

Returned once again to Buenos Aires, this time ending the 2nd tour. The group decided to head to El Querandi for a meal and Tango Show for the last night. This place was far better than the previous one I had been to, both for quality of dinner and quality of the performance. I was glad they had been in this order, as the night exceeded my expectations! Time to say farewell for now to my new found friends.

Conor arrived the following morning, a little later than expected, and without his luggage which had not made the flight... He was very calm - not sure I would have been so relaxed about it. We headed to Cafe Tortoni, second time here for me but I wanted to show it to Conor (and to taste their toasted cheese, ham and tomato sandwiches that I had spotted on my first visit. They did not disappoint!). We had a walk round the area, a quick chill out then took a taxi to Palermo Soho to spend the evening. First stop La Cabrera for a nice Joe Blake and Vino Tinto!! The service was slow but the food very nice. Dessert was lush - I had pistachio cheesecake and Conor chose Creme Brûlée. After dinner we headed to Thelonious - a Jazz club recommended to us.


Today we took a taxi to La Boca, where we had a nice relaxed lunch whilst tango dancers performed outside the bars in the street. Slightly frustrated when the waiter decided he wanted to add a 20% tip for himself on top of the 12.8% tip already added to the bill and the tips for the dancers!! Needless to say he did not receive this... I picked up a small present for my nan for her 95th birthday - hope she likes it! On return from La Boca I had a quick power nap and we headed out for another walk around the area then back to the hotel. On our return Conors baggage had still not arrived. The company narrowly avoided an irate phone call as his suitcase arrived when he went to reception to make the call. Potential stress resolved 12 hours prior to leaving the hotel...

Final delicious meal at Happiness, Puerto Madero. Another steak and Malbec (particularly nice one), mojito and then sleep time ready for the early flight tomorrow...
