Buenos Aires - best city in the world!! (in my opinion)...i love it and could live here easily...stayed in a mad party hostel so obviously sampled a lot of BA's nightlife (which is also great!) and made lots of new friends.

Went to all the different suburbs - San Telmo for the markets & street musicians (reminded me a lot of Paris) , La Boca - the colourful tango district and of course world famous football stadium, Palermo for the parks and polo ground (v posh area where i can see myself living!) Would've loved to have gone to a polo game but unfortunately was not the right time of year - but i will definitely be back to find that millionaire Argentinian polo player i am going to marry..ha ha!)

I did go to a Boca Juniors footy match though and was absolutely brilliant. have never seen such energetic, enthusiastic fans at any game before - 90mins of constant dancing, jumping, singing, fireworks when score a goal etc etc - totally mental! and fortunately we won 2-0 ...think they are my new team (after everton of course!)

Could've stayed here much longer and didn't want to leave (but think i say this about everywhere?!) but need to get to Brazil asap as not much time left..and i need some sun, had enough of the cold weather now and need my tan back!
