Arriving in Buenos Aires

The first thing i wanted to do when i arrived in Buenos Aires was get my barings... work out where everything was. So i decided to go on the big yellow bus tour. Though not one of the best tourist bus trips i've been on in my life, it definitely helped me get an idea of the layout of the city.

Steak in Buenos Aires

Next up on my list of things to do, was try the steak.... so i went to one of the most highly recommended steak houses in San Telmo. Gran Parilla del Plata. Really delicous and reasonably priced... plus you get loads of little sauces and condiments with the steak. Free!

Shopping in Buenos Aires

Next up i wanted to do a bit of shopping... Buenos Aires has loads and loads of great shopping streets and markets. Whether you want clothing or just nik naks and souvenirs to take home..there's something for everyone!

I liked the following...
San Telmo market (only on sundays)
Florida St for clothes
Palermo for boutiques

Foto Ruta Photography tour of Buenos Aires

I wanted to see a bit more of what Buenos Aires is about, and Foto Ruta was a new tour that i stumbled upon. They run photography treasure hunts around some of Buenos Aires' barrios www.foto-ruta.com and i'd highly recommend them if you want to see things a bit more off the tourist track

Learn Spanish

Although lots of people speak Spanish in Buenos Aires, i always feel like a bit of a cop out. So...i decided to look into spanish lessons while i was in BA. Just a few one on one classes. But they were really pricey so i opted for a crash course... a local school Expanish run daily courses www.expanish.com that i would definitely recommend. They are only 2 hours long and i left feeling like i'd definitely made progress!!
