Our first day!

We arrived safe and sound early Saturday. We dropped off the players at the training facilities and headed to our 5 star hotel.......

We took a quick walking tour after settling in and then had a bus tour around each section of town. The South side, La Boca, is the poor side that contains the very colorful neighborhood street, Caminito. Here they took the free paint colors (ones nobody else wanted) to paint their shanty houses but the result is very beautiful. The center of the city contains the Plaza de Mayo which contains the government Pink House and some old buildings. We also saw the worlds largest avenue and the 'Obelisco'. The North side of the city is the rich area, the River de Plate. We had dinner at "Locos por el Futbol" meaning crazy about soccer. After a long day we all slept well!
