... and then that Bostonian guy next door was snoring like a horse all night long :))
Baires has a great atmosphere. It is evident from the first moments. And mostly safe. Finding accommodation was no real issue either at this time of the year. It's end of summer over here, meaning that temperatures top 30 degrees C during the day and evenings are very pleasant.

San Telmo is one of the liveliest and more exciting areas in BA. And every Sunday there is an Antiques' open market on Av. Defensa that is really amazing. You can find nearly everything, from really old silversmith, porcelain and gramophones to cameras, hand made shoes and knives.

Everywhere there are places where you can have a coffee and a snack or a meal at very reasonable prices but with no compromises in quality. Local currency is Argentinian Peso and currently exchange rate goes at 1:5.5 to Euro which is quite favorable for European travelers. Ignacio said that Argentina used to be much cheaper a few years ago. I guess it could still be considered as an affordable destination....don't know for how much longer, so you'd better start putting it high in your travelling agenda.
Lot's of people around, from all over the world. Germany, France, S. Africa, Italy, Holland, US.....you name it. You never walk alone in this place.
My Spanish needs improvement though.....have to get from 0 to 1 soon :)))
