With less than 3 months away before the big trip back to Buenos Aires Argentina, this week we finally got our condo booked. Thanks to my dad, who was down there, and has some connections, he was able to look at the condo and put the deposit down for us on a studio condo. I couldn’t argue the price of only $560 for the 2 weeks we plan to be there.
Alas we are not staying in the heart of Ricoleta or Palermo SOHO as we had hoped, but we are staying in the Centro where Russ will only be 3 blocks away from his school and we’ll be one block away from the famous Obelisk that towers over the main 9 de Julio Ave. I think this location will be a great point for us as we explore the wonderful city of Buenos Aires and make it our home base.
Now of course I’ll have to try to figure out what I’ll be doing during the hours that Russ is busy with his language schooling. Hopefully I’ll be able to hook up with Duane who will be in the city for a few months, otherwise I might just take the train and visit my aunts at their home during the day.
All in all I’m starting to get really excited about this trip. This will be one of the longest visits for me to Argentina in sometime.
