After breakfast, which included some very tasty cakes with Dulce de Leche a milky caramel syrup, we set out for a days sightseeing.
The Icaro Hotel is on Montevideo street, two blocks away from the Congressional Plaza and the National Congress building.
From there, we walked to Plaza de Mayo and Casa Rosado, the executive mansion and office of the President of Argentina. Eva Peron , who served as the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death in 1952, addressed the crowds from the balcony here.
We walked down to the Port area, stopped for lunch in the Plaza San Martin park.
Our next stop was Cementerio de la Recoleta the first public cemetery in Buenos Aires in 1822. There are 4800 vaults including one for the Duarte family where Eva Peron (Evita) is buried. The cementerio covers 54,843 square metres.
It was very hot and sticky so we stopped at a shopping centre to cool down and get a drink and some free internet.
We got back to the hotel at 16:45 - my fitbit had recorded 18,500 steps and 8.5 miles.....no wonder my feet are sore.
There had been a few rumbles of thunder in the afternoon and by the evening there was heavy rain and lots of flashes of lightning.
