It is very comforting to know someone local, when in a foreign country. We rented our apartment for the week from Silvia, who is our friend Carolina’s aunt.
From welcoming us into her home to loaning us a computer to organize our photos, she has been so helpful in welcoming us to the city.
We spent Saturday afternoon with Silvia and her husband, Silvio, who drove us around Buenos Aires to see some of the highlights the city has to offer, including Boca and San Telmo.
We also strolled around Puerto Madero, which is one of the three major ports in BsAs. Saw lots of rollerbladers, an antique vessel of the country’s navy school, a short tango performance, and many porteños and tourists out enjoying a lazy Saturday afternoon.
