Our last 24 in Buenos Aires

Our last 24 hours in Buenos Aires were filled with activity.  We will long remember our wonderful trip, the local culture, the friendly people and the many beautiful antiques.  We are starting the countdown, anxiously awaiting the arrival of our container of fabulous finds.  We will be posting updates to our blog on the status of  our container as information becomes available.   So, stay tuned for the latest, even get a sneak preview of some of our  purchases.  And for now, enjoy a few more street scenes and a little tango.

After a wonderful lunch of grilled meats, Argentine wine and tango music, we continued our wanderings.  We found a wonderful indoor market with everything under the sun.

From the market we found our way to the Plaza Dorrego where we saw tango street performers and browsed the open antiques and bric-a-brac market.  Next it was off to the airport for our flight home.  What a fabulous trip to Buenos Aires and we can’t wait to  plan our next!
