El Dia del Bus...

Dear Chicago,

It was such a blustery day in Buenos Aires that my hat blew away at the first intersection we came to:

Not a great start. The troops and I marched on through the wind and rain to our destination: the bus stop for the Buenos Aires tour bus. My idea was to pay the flat rate and spend the day going on the bus around the entire city to catch all the main attractions. It ended up being a freezing cold ride in the rain on the upper deck of an open bus! K, M &D did manage to see the Obelisk, Casa Rosada, National Cathedral, Florida Street, the entire Caminito in La Boca, the Bonbonera stadium, the Congress building, Puerto Madero... everything.
Freezing on the bus:

We hopped off the bus when the roof started to blow off... poor Dad bumped his head and it was time for a taxi to a warm cafe and museum. We ate at the cafe outside of the Museo Arte Decorativo and toured the museum.

Views from the adventure:

Dinner was at an Italian restaurant in Puerto Madero - more great red wine and unbelievable desserts - a lava cake with dulce-de-leche in the center. Mmmmm.

A cold, rainy day in Buenos Aires - yet it couldn't have been better.

besos - Tess
