I was excited to arrive in Buenos Aires after having been immersed in nature, nature, nature. As beautiful as our trip has been, I've missed city life, and Buenos Aires seriously rocks my socks! Much more so than Santiago did. Sorry, Santiago.

The Moreno Hotel has been converted into the most chic boutique lodging, but it maintains an old-school foyer and elevator.
extra extra large room." Size does matter! The details were great. I'd love to make our home look like this in the future.
The Moreno Hotel is very close to the Plaza de Mayo. Here, the White House is actually a pink house, better known as La Casa Rosada. Like Chile, Argentina also has a female president. Girl power!
In the evening, on her suggestion, we met our new friend Aerogirl for dinner and a tango show at Cafe Tortoni. This coffeehouse was once an old haunt of the late renowned writer Jorge Luis Borges.
