Wednesday, November 24th, 2004: Buenos Aires [Argentina]
Today is a long day of doing not much. We check out of our room for 10:00 a.m., the standard checkout time here in Argentina. Our flight back to Buenos Aires doesn’t leave till 9:00 p.m. tonight. For some reason, most of the flights to the main tourist destinations seem to leave Buenos Aires before dawn, and get you back to Buenos Aires right around midnight.
We spend a few hours sitting in the hotel lobby, reading and working on our journal, before heading into town to do some shopping. An hour later, we have walked from one end of town to the other, and Greg has bought himself a belt and a sweater.
The weather is not nice enough today to sit outside, or even to walk by the harbour. There is rain and a bitter wind off the water. So we find a café and have coffees, before heading back to the hotel lobby for a few more hours.
