Welcome to Buenos Aires
well, I’ve survived the plane trip and gotten through the first couple of days in the office. Weather is cold and clear. Have not yet managed to get out of line-of-sight of the hotel, but hope to remedy this (and do some shopping) on the weekend.
We are in Puerto Modero, which is supposed to be one of the safest parts of town. The high degree of police presence (both naval & other) is very reassuring. We have been out to dinner a couple of times – a tip for travellers – if you don’t eat red meat or drink red wine, you are going to have an interesting time…
Moving to an apartment Monday, so should start living more like a normal Argentinian from then on.
Here is the view from the office at about 8:00 this morning (which is also the view from the hotel because they are next door to each other). Click on the picture to see more views of the neighbourhood.
