Holiday - Day 4 (Boxing Day)

We're on an all-day tour today courtesy of 'WOW! Argentina.

We're off to San Isidro and Tigre with lunch on a Delta Island.

We were picked up just after 9am by Josefina. We initially headed out of the city of Buenos Aires and into the province of Buenos Aires. We spent most of the morning looking around at the propertys including a Government mansion that was beautiful.

We were then driven to 'Tigre' where we jumped on our very own pleasure boat (for the just the four of us) and headed towards the restaurant for lunch. We saw some beautiful properties along the way on a journey that took around 45 minutes. We eventually moored at 'Restaurante Gato Blanco' a lovely place where we had a full lunch of salad, chicken, pork, chips, wine, beer and fruit salad. We finished off with coffee and by then we were all quite tired. Although there was an occasional breeze, it seemed to be getting hotter.

Jo called up our boat and we headed back to Tigre where we rejoined our driver. A short trip on the motorway brought us back to the hotel by 4pm where we all decided to crash out until 7.30 when we're going to decide what to do with oursleves for the evening.


'Plan A' was scuppered as the Tango Club we were going to visit, didn't open until 10.30pm - a bit late for us! However, Ann managed to use the Concierge's local knowledge toget us into another that started earlier. Front row seats too. In addition to plenty of expert Tango dancing, we were also treated to pan-pipes, squeezebox and two local singers, male and female.

We got to bed around midnight. It's certainly been a Boxing-Day to remember!!!!
