Buenos Aires and Punta del Este Trip Report

Hi All --

I've posted my Buenos Aires and Punta del Este travelogue here. A wonderful experience, despite some unfortunate events.

I've included photos, advice, and my usual mishaps.

Welcome to Flyertalk!

I enjoyed reading your trip report so much that I read your others. I appreciated your witty remarks and actually got most of your asides (especially the 80s music references but then again, I named my cat "Siobhan of Bananarama). Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the link to your travelogue... Glad you mostly enjoyed Buenos Aires—sometimes I still wish I lived there

Fantastic report... thanks for sharing!

Not only do I love Argentina and Uruguay, but any trip report that includes fashion, food, and iPod selections is one after my own heart. (Bias since that's how I write my own blog reports!)

Having visited a number of your locales, I felt like I was there, particularly recalling my own first encounter with the Buquebus terminal and frustrations with car rental agencies in Uruguay. Yep, been there, done that.

I look forward to your next report (and I'm bookmarking to read your previous reports since it seems like you travel like I do!)

Thanks for posting this. I will be spending a good part of the summer (summer here, winter "there") in Buenos Aires, and am enjoying the stories!

Nice report, helps me to remember the six months I lived in that beautiful city and amazing country a few years back.
