Drinking Argentinean women.....and me. :)

Argentinean women are renowned as some of the most beautiful in the world and my Argentinean girlfriends prove it to be true. I met these lovely ladies at my hostel and they are all students here in Buenos Aires. This picture was taken after we went to an all-you-can-drink bar in Belgrano. I had about one and a half cups while these ladies had between 4, 6 and 10 cups respectively. Crazy, funny, caring and daring....these women are all of those. :)

Cristina Kirchner is one cool cat.

Apparently on Sundays it is free to see the Casa Rosada which is the Argentinean equivalent to the white house; so a friend and I headed down to check it out! It was so beautiful and rich. There was golden plating, an open courtyard, a red velvet personal elevator, great pieces of art and more in this huge architectural icon.

The tour was about an hour long and included all the important rooms such as Cristina`s office, the announcement room, the publicity room etc. I really enjoyed one of the hallways which was lined with caricatures of past presidents from newspapers and such. It shows that the government in Argentina has a sense of humor. I recommend anyone coming to Buenos Aires to hit up this fun AND free tour.
