Argentina

Argentina

March 4th to 6th 2009

This visit to Argentina was part of a preparation to a Cruise from Ushuaia to Cape Town visiting Antarctica.

The first place visited was Buenos Aires.  The first afternoon we made a tour of the city including a visit to La Recoleta cemetery to see the tomb of Eva Peron.  The following morning I took myself off to an area behind the old docks warehouses to see wildlife.

In the afternoon I joined a boat trip around the Parana Delta and the town of Tigre

In the evening we all visited a very polished Dinner and Tango Show at La Ventana Tango House.

Early on the sixth of March we flew to Ushuaia to board the ship Minerva.

See below for a view of some of the photos.
