The gang is ready to fly!

We arrived in Buenos Aires early Friday morning and after quickly dropping off luggage we headed out to see the city. We stopped at La Casa Rosada, “The Pink House”, which is the executive office of the President. We walked through the famous mausoleums of La Recoleta cemetery, including that of the Family Duarte, where Eva Peron is buried. We visited the Metropolitan Cathedral, which is the mother church of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires and former home of Pope Francis. We ate lunch on Caminito alley of the famous La Boca neighborhood. We spent time exploring the city by bus and on foot and then ended our day with a traditional Argentine dinner and a Tango show.
