In Buenos Aires, everything was running well ... until we came to take a day tour to Uruguay, we found out that the weekend was a public holiday so there were only seats left in first class... we took the decision not to travel there and skip going to Uruguay.
We spent the last few days walking the parks of Buenos Aires which was a complete surprise for us. Buenos Aires is a true city of hippies and markets that sell crafts of all shapes and sizes. There was one afternoon that we spent walking to the flower of Buenos Aires, and then on to the beautiful Japanese gardens. On the way back we stopped in a park where lay on the grass and listened to live violin music and watched the sun go down..... the perfect way to end a very hot, sunny day in Buenos Aires!!
On the last night we came across a carnival going throught the streets with music, dancing and colourful costumes with people lining the streets all along the route into the distance.We could not resist so ended up fallowing the carnival as it passed throught the cobbled streets near to our hostel, stopping briefly to have a drink as the parade travelled past.
Buenos Aires was full of surprises and was sad to leave so soon!!
On the 8th of December we got a 16 hour night bus up to our next stop.....Iguazu.
