Balvanera, Buenos Aires
Yes, we are still in Buenos Aires. And I am sorry, I did it again. I forgot to post an update on our change of location. We didn’t move too far from the Airbnb in Monseratt. We are also only a few blocks away from La Barca Hotel, where we stayed the first week we were in Buenos Aires. This time we selected an old building. This place is over 100 years old and was built based on the design of Parisian town homes from that era. The ceilings must be 15 feet (4+ meters) high. There is real hardwood flooring throughout, with some tile in the entrance way. The elevator is from that era as well. It is a cage in the stairwell, with doors you need to open and close yourself. Sydney created a video of her thoughts on it. Check it out on her YouTube channel.
The Cartoon Walk
We have been pretty busy here, working and studying. The internet connection has been stable and fast and the dinning room table is big enough for everyone the setup their laptops. We did drag ourselves out to check out the “Paseo de la Cartoon” a couple of weeks ago. The Cartoon Walk, as it is known in English, is a street museum that pays homage to the most famous of Argentina’s cartoons. We snapped a bunch of pictures of them. Sadly, some have been vandalized with graffiti, while others are hard to see because of construction. Below are the first characters you see on the tour, Mafalda (the one on the bench), Susanita y Manolito.
