I actually purchased a World Traveller Plus Ticket and used miles to upgrade to Club world so I was quite chuffed to wake up this morning after having slept for 8 hours on the flight down. There were some serious bumps in the night though. The Flight attendant told me that when crossing the equator the weather gets very rough. I then realised that my route was the same one that downed Air France a few years back over the Atlantic. They say they went into a major storm. I should really refrain from thinking of crashes when I am flying. Breakfast was great in the sky and yep there was loads of sun on the runway for landing after the 13 1/2 hours in the air.
Ah Buenos Aires!!! Light breeze, sunny and 25C today. Because I am rested I had a shower and hit the town. As it is Sunday there is a massive antique Market in San Telmo where I pretty much spent the day walking around having a bite to eat and a few beers.
Saw a great session of street dancing expertly executed by a couple that were probably grandparents. Boy could they move doing the tango.
Went to a square that looked like it was right out of EVITA. I think I did see the famous balcony that Eva Peron once graced.
Now getting ready to gobble some famous Argentine Beef at a restaurant in Polermo.
The sun went down at about 7:30pm. For my English friends that are wondering what the sun is … the sun is a warm ball of light that radiates our world and actually creates substantial light all day. Yes there is an alternative to cloud and rain. 🙂
