Today we took a biking tour Tigre, the delta area and northern suburbs of Buenos Aires. We then took a kayaking trip through the islands of the Tigre Delta water system. After returning to the city we had a casual dinner followed by some ice cream! Though it was originally not planned, due to some changes in accommodations  the two groups were able to meet briefly. Members of both groups joined together for a post dinner walk to the Puerto Modero waterfront. The river walk is lit up at night and features rotating footbridges connecting the east and west docks. The newest and most famous of the foot bridges is called Puente de la mujer which was designed by Santiago Calatrava.
