fz570628The capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, is one of the largest cities in South America and has the widest streets in the world (27 lanes, about 140 meters wide). There are also many attractions such as Plaza de Mayo, Independence Monument (Obelisk), Rose Palace and so on.
Rodney RBuenos Aires's main attraction is a cemetary! But what a cemetery! From here you go straight to heaven. It's in Recoleta an easy walk from Casa Ofelia. Take Libertad Street (one block over from Talcahuano) and walk to the end. It's also a nice way to see Recoleta on foot and take in the luxury buildings. For public transport, a bus runs along Parana Street (two blocks from Talcahuano) that goes directly there.
TodemmyWe arrived at the Posada and went straight to this Bodega for lunch and wine tasting. We tasted the 3 wines in the mid -range. All excellent. The empanadas and cheese and meats were delicious. All are house made. Joanna was our hostess and is lovely. We came back the next day for lamb sandwiches made on their asado. Outstanding! Once of the highlights of our trip to Uruguay. Definitely recommend!!
