Arg trip: days 2 & 3 + photos.

Day 2: The day began with a very civilized breakfast (tea & toast) followed by second breakfast at a cafe.

E spent the time there sketching the view. I spent it filming her sketch!
There were LOTS of buses. (We later counted 25 heading in one direction in 15 seconds)

The afternoon was spent with our friend M. She drove us (in her diesel peugeot 504 – jealous dad?) to MALBA. Some very repressed Catholic Art + some cool contemporary stuff.

More coffee at cafe Havana in Palermo SOHO.

Ham sandwiches for dinner. E says: there are so many dogs everywhere…

Unfortunately, all that caffeine means E doesn’t sleep a wink and baby B is wired. Lots of kicking and punching, often in time to E’s heartbeat!

Day 3: Up early due to E not sleeping, so get Skype working – video call with Dad.

Quiet morning after no sleep. E makes minestrone for lunch. We check out the view from the top of our building… wow. Photos still to come.

Went with M to La Boca and Puerto Madero.

Saw the Boca Juniors stadium at a distance. (Didn’t bother taking a photo).

We knew La Boca is a bit of a rough area, but how’s this for a steering lock…

No caffeine at the cafe this time, just OJ and chips.

Drove home through peak hour… And we thought Sydney traffic was bad! Here’s a video of the traffic on our way there (this was the light traffic – ignore the audio… 😀 ).  Traffic in BA.
