Buenos Aires

BA is what I expected Rio to be but without beaches. It might be one of my favorite cities in the world. Now I did stay in some of the nicest hotels on the planet while here, so I am a bit biased, but man I had a great time here. Parillas (grilled meat restaurants) are everywhere, patios are everywhere, classic European squares, old as shit monuments, gorgeous people, etc. I found BA to be just easy and beautiful.

Notes to self:

-Go to a nice sit down steak restaurant. The steaks are as big as your head and cost very little. They will give you a million sauces, dips, pastes, whatevers to enjoy with your steak and side dishes and bread.
-Go to the market square area (San Telmo) and have a seat on the patio. The dancing is interesting and the atmosphere lively. Even walking to and from this area can be outrageously packed and fun as hell.
-Port Madero is an up and coming area, but the walk along this canal can be pretty awesome. Lot’s of patio options and people and views.
-Florida street is one of those great pedestrian streets you find in cool cities. Tons of people and lots of retail.
