So I survived my 12 hours in Brazil, caught my flight to Argentina and made
it to my hotel. Argentina is totally different from what I thought. Where I thought Brazil was supposed to be a lovely, trendy city and Argentina a kinda drab out of the way stop, it is completely the opposite. Argentina looks like the part of Europe has been dropped into South America. My hotel is in the Puerto Madera district in Buenos Aires, which is the former docklands. The Google Earth satellite photo doesn't do it very good justice, but the architecture is classical, the restaurants are open late and the bars are packed.
