Sept 1 was an eventful day. We went on another walking tour, but this time we walked through Recoleta. We saw Big Ben of South America, Plaza San Martin, the posh neighborhood of Recoleta, and the Recoleta Cemetery.
After the tour, we had Milanesa for lunch. Milanesa is a very popular cuisine in Argentina and it basically just tastes like breaded meat. After a late lunch we walked home and relaxed before cooking a light dinner at the hostel. After dinner we went to La Catedral Club to watch some tango! We split a bottle of wine and stayed for a few hours 💃🏻.
On Sept 2, we slept in and had a relaxing morning. After coffee and breakfast at the hostel, we walked around town to find inexpensive Argentinian soccer jerseys for the fútbol match we will be going to in a few days! In the late afternoon we went to Centro Cultural to see Fuerza Bruta. It was very entertaining and it reminded us of Cirque de Soleil.
We had dinner at the famous steakhouse called Don Julio’s. It was similar to a New York City steakhouse, but cost about a third the price and had way better steak. After dinner we called it a night and headed back to the hostel to pack for Uruguay! 🇺🇾
