Oct 13, 2018 - Tigre

Today we are going on an all day tour to Tigre an hour out of Buenos Aires. First we need to get to the Estacion Sturla which is at Puerto Madero. We board the boat and our guide is Eduardo and there are 9 of us. Five from Peru, two from Buenos Aires and us. Eduardo's grandmother came from Adelaide. Hard to beleive but his grandfather originally from Scotland married an Adelaide girl and worked in the mining industry so they live in Kalgoorlie for a while before moving to Argentina and then eventually the USA. Amazing!! The boat trip takes...

Apr 7, 2012 - Camping à Tigre

Après un jour de repos à Buenos Aires chez Aurélie, nous voilà partis en week-end pour faire du camping au bord du delta vers Tigre à env. 1h de Buenos Aires avec Aurélie et Mauricio. Le camping au bord du delta est très joli malgré les moustiques et quelques grosses bêtes sur notre tente :-) Le soir, nous avons testé notre premier asado argentin, Nicolas est fan de la viande. Pour aller à Tigre, nous avons fait un voyage d'une heure en train à 1.10 pesos, cela change de chez nous. Par contre, il ne faut pas avoir peur car cela tremble dans...

Oct 4, 2008 - Buenos Aires

We awoke at 0730 and had planned to go to Boca District to see if we could get tickets to Sunday afternoons Boca Juniors v Estudiantes game but bumped in to a couple of blokes who seemed to think that they would not be on sale until game day.

We took the Subte to Retiro then boarded a train to Tigre 50 minutes for $1.10 (NZ$0.55)! The hub of the town is Puerto de Fruitos a huge market but (this...

Jan 11, 2008 - El Tigre : petite ville sur le delta du rio de la Plata

Dans un enchevetrement d'iles, le ravitaillement s'effectue par voie fluviale. Je passerai en Uruguay, en barque de bois. 3 heures de navigation a travers une vegetation luxuriante et vue sur des residences de villegiature de tout genre : opulentes, originales, modestes. Toutes sont, bien sur, dotees d'un ponton.

Oct 16, 2007 - Dancing the Tango

Sunday 14.10.07 My mother Sally and two of her close friends were in Buenos Aires at the tail end of a month-long tour of South America. With fortunate timing and just a little planning, we were able to meet up twice in the city during the duration of her trip. This time we left together for the Tigre Delta on a clear, windless morning. The delta area sits north of Buenos Aires, where the Rio Parana meets the Rio Uruguay to form the Rio de la Plata, a huge estuary on which both Buenos Aires and Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay sit. The...
