We spent two nights in Buenos Aires before moving onto the next leg of our journey to recover from the flight and adjust our body clocks a little.
With a 13 hour time difference it takes a little while.
Buenos Aires is a big noisy (and not always safe) city so rather than staying right in town we thought it would be quieter and safer to stay in one of the more residential areas of Palermo Soho. I found a cute little B&B on the internet called Soho Rooms which was owned by an artist couple and had a really chillaxed retro vibe. I liked it, and any bed after a 24hr journey is so comfortable.
Check out the awesome wall art in the breakfast room made from vintage wall paper. We took a walk around the area in the morning on our day there, it was a mix of grand old buildings, trendy boutiques and historic businesses. Sadly most of the beautiful turn of the century buildings in Buenos Aires have been razed to make way for apartment blocks, this area still has some of the character remaining, but may of the buildings are in a sad state of disrepair or have been marked for developments.
I was planning on returning to some of the cute boutiques that were closed that morning (most didn’t open till lunchtime), but unfortunately we couldn’t keep our eyes open and went to have a snoozzze…
