Visiting BA this week from Canada...
Posted February 21st, 2011 - 12:53 am by from Victoria, Canada (Permalink)
Hola BA CS'ers, my name is Karen and I'm hoping to meet some of you over coffee or a glass of wine and share some of your stories or hear tips/recommendations on what to do while I'm here. I've heard a number of mugging stories so feeling a little nervous about going out alone at night, but hope to explore your amazing city by day.

My boyfriend returns from Patagonia Thursday and we're looking for something to do Friday and Saturday - any ideas?

Please email if there are any social events going on, I see I missed a puppet show today, or if you've got free time or suggestions, thanks!

(ps: I have a language barrier but I'm friendly, smile)

on my way to grab a taxi the hotel concierge looked up bereber's address for me and said they're not open sundays, i telephoned but got no answer so decided to skip the taxi ride over, just in case. i'm sorry i missed you and your daughter, hope you had a nice meal wherever you ended up and thanks again for the friendly invite jb. if there's another chance to meet, please let me know!!

Hi Karen
Welcome to Buenos Aires. You'll surely enjoy your visit here. Today Monday, I'm quite busy, but I'm usually free between 2 and 5 pm. Please write to maetan41@msn.com and we can meet for a drink.
Buenos Aires is just like any big city. You have to watch your purse at all times and be careful with the areas you 're alone at night. I live in Recoleta and usually walk late in the evening alone with no proble.
Hope to hear from you

Monica
