 Despite the rain, the cold, and my tango failure, it wouldn’t take much arm-twisting for me to return to Buenos Aires.  We spent 5 days in this very European city, 2 of which were spent exploring neighborhoods and the macabre Recoleta cemetery (where Evita is buried).

In addition to tango, highlights include the River Plate soccer game (they lost and were demoted – it would be like the Red Sox being kicked out of the Major League), Argentine wine tasting, and spending a day at our classmate’s family’s ranch outside of the city.
