Judging from our experience with the rest of Argentina, we knew that Buenos Aires was going to be expensive. We decided to get an apartment through Airbnb which saved us from having to pay the 21% tax that most hotels and hostels charge. Getting our own apartment also allowed us to cook and avoid the high restaurant prices.
We always knew we would be spending some time in Buenos Aires, but we also expected that we would be getting our Brazilian visas while we were there. That didn’t quite work out because we apparently had to book an appointment, but they were all reserved through the 26th of January… the day after we are scheduled to leave Brazil and fly to Cape Town, South Africa. So, that would have to hopefully be done when we arrived in Montevideo, Uruguay.
We spent our time walking around the city of Buenos Aires, and taking the Subte (subway) when we could. We did a lot of walking. Below are the photos from our two days of sightseeing and some pictures of our apartment in the Belgrano neighborhood.
