Goodbye to Buenos Aires

Last day in Buenos Aires so we got up early even though it was another late night last night and headed to La Boca with two Irish girls, Mairead and Maria that we met in the hostel.

La Boca is the roughest area in BA and we were warned to only stay on the two main tourist streets, not to bring cameras or wear watches and try to look poor - not a difficult thing for us to do!

It wasn´t nearly as bad as everyone was making out. We were expecting the Shankill Road on 12th July! Turns out that its a really colourful arty kind of place with tango dancers on the street and lots of artists selling their paintings on street stalls.

It was a good day but our first big bus trip loomed - 18 hours on a coach to the Iguassu Falls so we said goodbye and hit the road.

We stopped off that evening in a really small place in the middle of nowhere - Hicksville, Tennessee if you know what I mean! We got in to this place and we saw our very first South American prostitute! Baby´s got back. Baby also looked like she had a whole load of STD´s too!

The buses over here are out of this world. We were in this big double decker coach with fully reclinable seats and all the leg room you could ask for. When you get on, they give you a blanket and pillow, there´s movies on the whole time, you get breakfast, lunch and dinner and I even got a nightcap!

18 hours goes by a lot faster than you think it would...


  • Hi Guys,

    Well the luxury bus does not sound like your 77A in the middle of Sept in Tallaght!! You sound like you are both having the time of your life.

    You need to start putting photos on the site, hope you have some of the STD Queen!!

    Take care and talk soon
