Hola again from B.A. We are halfway through our stay here and I am sure we have not even scratched the surface here. Yesterday we took this tourist bus where you could jump on and off all through the day. The entire trip takes about 3 hours without getting off. It was a great overview of the city and the magnitude of it. We also went to La Boca for a few hours. It is the older part of the city, the artists quarters, and not renowned for being safe. We were fine there, there were lots and lots of little shops and restaurants and tango dancers out on the street. Poor old Tezza, he could only stomach the shops for so long until he found himself a seat in the sun with a beer and let me go for it! It suited us both perfectly until it came time to find him again and we had our usual dramas where both of us blamed the other one for not being in the place we said we would be! Oh well, at least this time we didnt get told off by a french woman!!!
Last night we saw a football game which was a great experience (and more expensive to get to than the Dinner and Tango night!). We did that instead of going to a game at the famous Marracana in Rio, only because that one is closed for renovations before the World Cup in two years.
And my last word for today ... Yes, of course it involves Terry! This time he did something so bad that I am still coming to terms with it. The temporary loss of his mastercard pales in comparison to this ... Terry McBride, Seasoned Traveller, ate at McDonalds!!!!!!!!! For those of you who dont know Terry very well, this is not just blog-worthy, I am considering notifying the international news stations. Terry will NEVER eat in an American establishment, much less a fastfood one. He has been known in the past to eat off the street and get sick before he would lower himself to McDonalds. So there you go. I dont know whether we have to put this one down to old age or temporary insanity. Whichever one, I wont be letting him forget it in a hurry. He said he was hungry and he couldnt find anything else in the ten minutes we had before going to the game. Huh! Very weak excuse I must say. He will have to do better than that in the future!
Cheers for now,
