Right after we got to the room, we changed and went to the pool. While I was there, I broke my googles and lost my sunglasses:(. From the pool, you could see a little bit of the Atlantic ocean, but we couldn't go swimming in it :(.
We went swimming the next day as well and then we went home. I thought it was a good idea to go to the hotel to get away from the heat!
One important goal of this trip is to avoid hotels as much as possible, especially during the longer stays. We want to immerse in the local cultures via apartments and walks to the small markets. However, after almost a week of near, and over, 100 degree temperatures, we gave the kids the treat of swimming (and a breakfast buffet vs. Dad's daily huevos and Zucarita's con leche). And true to be expected, while clean and beautiful, the hotel could have been in any Spanish-speaking country in the world, and would not have the slightest idea of real Argentinian culture (although we did see a few Brazilian-type thong bottoms on both men and women!)
As a final treat, Mom and Dad did authorize hamburgosa's from room service so we could go on a Sushi date. Our advice to anyone looking for Sushi in B.A. is to skip it altogether, and wait until you visit a seafood oriented country. ;)
