Very excited as I have just booked my ticket to South America, Argentina in particular. There is talk of heading up to Peru and Columbia but that depends on funds.
I have been before but it’s hard to get tired of the colourful food, couples dancing Tango in the streets, endless clothing and shoe shops, Spanish accent and men (please don’t mention that to my boyfriend).
We’ll be hiring an apartment in one of the oldest parts of Buenos Aires called San Telmo. San Telmo has a strong French architecture influence that it sometimes easy while sitting at a corner café to be feel that you are in fact in Paris.
My father, my travelling partner will be going for business and as his admin assistant I’ve agreed to be paid in clothes, not a bad bargain I think ;)
I better get my old Spanish phrase book out and get practising!
