These last few days in Buenos Aires marked the end of my month-long adventure around South America!
I made the most of it by visiting every nook and corner of the city, starting with a bike tour around old Buenos Aires, attending a spectacular show and discovering some of the most vibrant neighbourhoods the city has to offer.
La Recoleta Cemetery – The most beautiful (and only, actually!) cemetery I have ever visited, located in the Recoleta neighbourhood. Ginormous and intricately designed graves for the loved ones of the super rich and the who’s who of Argentine culture. I went on a particularly grey and wet day which only added to the mood of the cemetery.
Fuerza Bruta – An incredibly cool, interactive and now international show which originated in Buenos Aires in 2005. People running towards you at full speed and pulling you into the performance, water being sprayed directly on you and dancers performing about an inch away from your head; this show is unlike anything I have experienced before!
Paseo del Rosedal – Located in Palermo, this is a massive garden in the heart of the neighbourhood. Lakes, landscaped pathways, an abundance of flowers and beautiful bridges; the perfect location for a romantic walk or a quiet hour or so with a good book! There were quite a few amatuer photo-shoots going on while I was there as well – perhaps for a Quinceañera (The celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday in Latin America)?
Palermo – Another one of my favourite (and the largest) neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires. Peppered with chic cafes, boutiques, and cobblestoned streets, this area is effortlessly cool and great for a casual stroll.
