Buenos Aires, 11/18/08

Tuesday was a pretty quiet day. After breakfast and dulce de leche helados with Eugenio's brother and sister-in-law, our excellent hosts and the proprietors of Discover BA, we headed out for some sightseeing. We tried to go to MALBA, the main art museum, but it was closed. So instead we walked through United Nations Park and looked at Floralis Genérica, which has solar-powered motors that open and close the petals. Very cool.

Then we went to the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, which had a great collection of famous European and Argentinean artists. We spent the evening walking around Palermo Soho and stopped at two different supermarkets (supermercado) to pick up breakfast for the next morning. The food was unbelievably cheap.

We stopped for dinner at a small place around the corner from the apartment where we were staying called Oasis. They had wonderful bife sandwiches and Ed enjoyed some Quilmes Cerveza Negra. I liked it too -- a bit sweet and not too hoppy.
