Our South American Odyssey: Day 8

On the evening of Day 7, April 3, 2019, we climbed into our “El Practico” bus and embarked on a 10-hour red-eye from Cordoba to Argentina’s Capital: Buenos Aires.

During the grueling ride, we stopped at a surreal truck stop where we Saw the Southern Cross for the First Time and most of the boys chose not to sleep (and paid dearly for it).

We arrived in the beautiful Buenos Aires on Thursday, April 4, 2019, at 6:30 a.m. and what a day Diego had planned for us …

During the non-stop tour (similar to our Day 1 D.C. adventure) we had the opportunity to tour the Casa Rosada which is Argentina’s version of our White House. It’s famous balcony which looks over the Plaza de Mayo, served as a political stage for many of Argentina’s leaders and one Evita Peron

And we toured the Teatro Colon

And we toured the United States Embassy…

And we toured the Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti Stadium, home of the River Plates soccer team, the same team that we saw play on Day 3

After just 11 hours in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, we reluctantly climbed back in the “El Practico” for a 10-hour return trip to Cordoba to get ready for our final day, Day 9. However, this day was special, and it was not lost on any of us, including the boys.
