    Enjoyed your pages on Buenos Aires. I would love to visit Argentina. My great grandfather visited a lot from Sicily in the 1800's. My claim to Argentina is a fourth cousin, Gabriela Sabatini, who played tennis for Argentina.

    Hi Georgina, As I look out at the snow and cold Buenos Aires is very appealing. Your tips are wonderfully written with great pics. I was interested in La Boca. Yesterday I was writing tips about Burano, Italy and it seemed very similar. Thanx...Tom
