This morning (Aug 18th) we arrived from Bariloche to the bus station in Retiro at about 11:30. We took a taxi to Palermo to have one last breakfast in our beloved La Pharmacie and said our goodbyes to Eleonora. From Palermo we took a bus #29 all the way across the city to San Telmo to Babel Hotel. The #29 is a great way to see Buenos Aires because it crosses many famous neighborhoods. It goes from Olivos through Belgrano, Palermo, Microcentro, San Telmo and ends up finally in the famous La Boca. It is in itself a city tour.
I posted three clips on YouTube from our ride. The sound is not that great but you will get an idea. The traffic in Buenos Aires unfortunately is getting worse each time we are here.
Oh, well. Que se va hacer, as they say here. What are you gonna do?
