Today Chris and I went exploring. We walked up Avenida Santa Fe (a very large shopping street near our apartment) to Plaza Italia. Then across past the Zoo and to the Monumento de los Espanoles, past the US embassy (and some very fancy apartment buildings near it).
We got the Subte back to Bulnes (our local) and stopped for salads for lunch at a local and very charming place called Virago Caffé. All terribly civilised. We were going to head to San Telmo but have decided to keep that for next week.
Here is a short video out the window of the café we enjoyed for lunch.
