My Journey Round The World

279 days on the road…

Travel Puerto Iguazú – Buenos Aires


Waouuu, so great this nearly 20 hours bus trip!!! Even if it was on a boring flat asphalted road, where I could see all along cows and horses… The only thing missing was the shower! ;) After this really hot day in Parque Nacional Iguazú in Argentina, I took a night bus to Buenos Aires and what a bus!- Ariane and Gregoire, if you remenber our trip from Arequipa to Puno, this was the same kind of bus! :)Diner served – ok at 1am, time to pick up all the passengers, but still served :) - long night sleep with pillow and blanket nearly like in your bed, breakfast - Carmen, I do remember you told me about this luxury ;)and arrival to BA around 1pm where I took a really friendly taxi, showing me around the main buildings we were passing through to go to the Ostinatto hostel - http://www.ostinatto.com/index.html – in the trendy San Telmo barrio, for once I did book – even if it’s nearly like in your bed, it was the third nights bus in 4 nights… :)

So I did book the hotel but it didn’t work! And when I arrived, dreaming of a good shower, they were no electricity and no water… :( Fine! I went for a short walk around and lunch in a parrilla

Actually, at a first glimpse, Buenos Aires remind me a lot of Paris… Paris on a hot summer day in January  – Yes Mathilde, still in short sleeve shirt… Sorry! :) With it’s large avenues, trees, plazas, cosmopolitan atmosphere… Clean streets compare to what I’m use to since a while now… Yes a capital… First thing I also notice were French or even Italian cars such as Peugeot, Renaud and Fiat which I don’t remember seeing on this side of the world before… There are even small Carrefour shops! Back to the civilisation I know… :) Nevertheless, quite puzzling after Bolivia experience!
