After our amazing two months in Argentina and Chile, we have returned to Buenos Aires on our way north to Brazil. We enjoy some quiet days at a hotel in the Palermo Soho neighborhood where there are lots of cafés on beautiful treelined streets.
Amy has quickly returned to form and you can see how delighted she is to discover the neighborhood origami store. Palermo Soho is where creative Buenos Aires retail shops appear, so Rob is professionally obligated to take note of a few of these.
We spend one of our days on the Paraná River delta where residents of Buenos Aires spend their leisure time at river houses that can be reached only by boat.
The Paraná River empties into the Rio de la Plata, separating Argentina from Uruguay. Enormous quantities of water flow south from Brazil into this fresh water river that is so wide you cannot see across its width.
Continuing with our theme of visiting by boat, we catch a ferry to Colonia, a small city across the Rio de la Plata in Uruguay. Colonia was built during the colonial era and is now preserved as a World Heritage Site.
