Saturday, We arrived to Buenos Aires pretty jetlagged, and took the first two days getting used to our new time zone, sleeping til 11am both mornings. Sunday we checked out Plaza de Mayo and the San Telmo market, where we were entertained by tango dancers, local bands and a puppeteer. Monday Loic had a few phone interviews, so we less exploring but did visit the famous cemetary, la Recoleta, where Eva Peron is buried. We marveled at the size and extravagance of the tombs, some the size of a small church.
Samedi, Nous arrivons a Buenos Aires apres 11 heures de vol et un gros jet lag. Ca nous prends deux ou trois jours pour nous en remettre. Dimanche, nous allons voir Plaza de Mayo et le marche de San Telmo, ou nous observons les danceurs de Tango, musiciens locaux et un marionettiste. Lundi, Loic est pendu au telephone pour des entretiens, mais nous prenons le temps de visiter le cimetiere de la Recoleta, ou Eva Peron est enterree. Nous sommes impressionnes par le cimetiere et les nombreux caveaux familiaux, certains atteignant la taille d'une petite eglise.
