Buenos Aires

Vegetarian vexed while visiting Argentina

in Argentina, it’s a different story.Now I’m not 100% vegetarian. About 90% of the restaurants here do have an option for vegetarians. Because I don’t consider myself super strict when it comes to meat consumption, I can generally find a few vegetarian options (3 or more) on every menu, at least in the United States. Even a majority of the salads here contain some form of meat. three of the last four restaurants we ate in offered only one vegetarian option.

Buenos Aires Is Burning: Smoke Is Everywhere

Smoke in Buenos Aires from fires. But it is VERY smoky in Buenos Aires today. Seems that hundreds of thousands of acres of land are being cleared to the West and North of here. Carrie and I don’t smoke, but our apartment smells like someone smokes, and the visibility here is pretty poor at the moment. The smoke got REALLY thick last night, and has done some clearing today, and hopefully the fires will die down so that we can be without smoke once again.

Buenos Aires: Galleria Jardin, The Botanical Garden Cats, San Telmo Market, and the Casa Rosada

What can you do in Buenos Aires? Well for computer parts there’s Galleria Jardin (AKA Galeria Jardin, a huge outdoor walking plaza and mall). For outdoors there’s the Botanical Gardens (make sure to see the botancial gardens Cats in Buenos Aires), and the San Telmo Market. Of course, no visit to Buenos Aires could be complete without a trip to see the Casa Rosada, where Eva Peron gave her famous speech(es).

Buenos Aires Apartment: Troubles With Our Palermo, Buenos Aires Apartment

Our sucky experience with a Buenos Aires Apartment Rental: Problems with our Buenos Aires Apartment, and hat we did to get a better rental place in Palermo, Buenos Aires. The apartment we originally had reserved, we got talked out of and got talked into this one. We saw that it was on a busy street, so we asked (before confirming our reservation) if it would be noisy. The real estate agent confirmed that it would not be noisy. We went through a real estate agent who is from Buenos Aires and is based out of Florida.
