After last year's wonderful trip to South America, we decided to return to Buenos Aires for a full month. Arriving November 1st, we checked into our rental apartment, toured the city with traveling companions, Marty and Anya Flesh and Joanne Goldwater, enjoyed the city and did side trips to Iguazu Falls and Colonia Sacramento in Uruguay. Don and Doreen Chaloner arrived mid November and we took an overnight trip to gaucho territory, staying at Estancia El Ombu de Areco in San Antonio de Areco. We celebrated Robin's Birthday and American Thanksgiving in the city and enjoyed a number of its neighborhoods or barrios. En route home we spent twenty-four hour's in Lima Peru for a quick preview tour for a later trip south.
