Every where we went in Buenos Aires we noticed that the sidewalks were in desperate need of repair. They either were cracked, uneven, missing tiles so a plank was put over it to walk on and just large holes.

I definitely had a hard time walking around in the evenings with my heels and had to hold on for dear life to Ferni. During our last night in Buenos Aires it finally dawned on me to wear wedged heels (I had bought a pair a day before at a market) as I am prone to missing a step or falling into cracks and taking a tumble.

Thank goodness I didn't suffer any falls during this trip (a miracle).

So, if you are visiting Buenos Aires and want to wear heels, my advice, wear wedges.
