Day 2

Yesterday we took a stroll down the shopping street, "Florida" and saw some of the leather goods. Then we took off to watch one of Buenos Aires ten professional teams the Boca Juniors.

The crowd here is known for riots and causing the stadium to pulse and shake by jumping and singing. It was the home opener so we got there early and then waited for the stadium to clear as a safety procaution and our guides made sure we were taken care of. The game was quite uneventful, 0-0 and according to Dario it was one of the worst games he has ever seen, but it was interesting to see how much soccer is a part of the local tradition. It was freezing and we were glad to get into the bus and off to dinner where we experienced 9 types of barbequed meat cuts. DSCN4022.JPG
