Buenos Aires - Day 3

Well, shorter day today. First a 2.6 mile stroll in the Reserva Ecologic. (parakeets and hummingbirds, and something that looked kind of like a cross between a guinia pig and a possum.) Then we hit the town again. First stop the Plaza de Mayo (Evita's balcony speech) then we ran (the wrong way through the rain) to the nearest barbeque, but finally found it. After giving Wendy a very strange look when she said she was "soy vegetariana", the waiter came back and said he had ordered her something and if she didn't like it, she didn't have to eat it.

Actually, it was kind of like a vegetarian empanada, so she was very happy, even with the sizzling platters of meat going by.

We actually took a taxi back to the hotel (!) and we're heading out soon for the ice cream place we found on the first night. Then Wendy gets to meet her passengers at the reception and it's next stop Patagonia.

I don't know if I'll have access until I get back, but if I do, I'll keep this up.
