We spent the morning strolling into town and then sitting by the pool.
Our airport pick-up arrived at 13:30 and took us across the border to Argentina. Luckily the queues were quite short and even though Rob had lost his entry paperwork we got through.
The flight to Buenos Aires was very bumpy to start with and the 'Fasten Seat belts' sign stayed on for the first 40 minutes.
As we came in to land we had incredible views of the city - miles and miles of apartment blocks as far as you could see.
(Apparently it covers 80 square miles and in 2016, the estimated population was 2,891,000.)
The trip from the airport took us past several parks with people running and cycling. Some of the roads are up to 16 lanes wide split into 6 sections!
Many of the smaller roads are one way and have a cycle track enforced by bollards.
We ventured out in the evening to find an ATM and get some water - both the cash point and the supermarket refused our cards. Feeling slightly worried about surviving for 2 days without any money and feeling very thirsty we decided to look for another ATM - thank goodness for Citibank, we managed to withdraw some cash.
We opted for pizza for dinner (it's still 29 degrees, so neither of us have much of an appetite). Rob was pleased to see they sold stout - unfortunately he didn't realise it came in litre bottles and was rather sozzled by the end of the meal!
