Things to do in Buenos Aires

December 26th, 2007 No comments

With our four-year anniversary this week, Suzanne and I were thinking back to our wedding and honeymoon. Also, a number of friends of ours have visited Buenos Aires over the years, so we thought we would take a little time to note some of our favorite attractions.

Follows is a brief list if some shopping and dining recommendations from memory. I will add more when I get a chance to find our old guidebooks to figure out other off the beaten path suggestions. Read more…

Our last full day in Yellow Springs, we met up with Ty and Melanie, friends of ours from Carrboro, now living in California. We last saw them at their home in California in the Spring, and would probably not have seen them again for some time, except they were visiting with Ty’s family in Sydney, Ohio for the holidays.

When in Yellow Springs, probably the nicest faire can be found at the Winds Cafe. To celebrate Suzanne’s grandmother’s ninetieth birthday, we took everyone out for a nice meal at this town landmark. Read more…
