After living mostly in a tent for the last month and a half, we've swung entirely in the other direction and settled into an amazing place at:

J. A. Carranza 1569 U6
Capital Federal, Buenos Aires

in the Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires. The three story place has a living area and kitchen on the first floor, a spiral staircase that leads to the second, open floor with bedroom and bath and a third, open air terrace floor up top, complete with parilla (BBQ) and hammock. Completely over the top... We're in heaven. We've signed for 45 days, so there will be lots of time to feel the lifestyle of a Porteño.  In case you want to give us a buzz: +54 (11) 47749373.

We've already taken our first tango lesson, and let me tell you - this dance fits the passion of this great city perfectly. Looking forward to enjoying some of the fantastic Argentine wines (especially our new favorite grape - Malbec, which if you haven't tried - well, let's just say you must try any Malbec from Argentina, they're all good!

Excuse me while I go sit up on the terrace and start dreaming of some goodies for iTools.

Mazel-tov kinderlach. Wow, is there place for us to stay? It's nice to see that you are no longer homeless vagabonds. You know that we have them in Montreal. Enjoy and soak up the culture and drink a glass(or even a bottle) of wine for us.

Love you both

Bill and Ruth

The hammock on the top terrace - that is the place where ideas are being conceived, daydream!

Hey you two!! I guess you have roughed it enough to enjoy some creature comforts for now!! I saw Karen and she told me all about your plans and that you have a phone number! I'll call you once I figure out the time difference, I'd love to catch up, always thinking of you, Deb

Hi guys, this is a great site! I am a friend of Danielle Shashoua in Montreal. I spent a couple of weeks in B.A. this past winter, as well as a few other regions in Argentina and Uraguay. If you are looking for suggestions (cool places to visit, eat, dance, theatre, etc.), give me a shout.

Hey you two! The new pad is SHAWANKY! Nice :-)

Great to be able to travel vicariously with you - keep the stories coming!

I guess I am a little slow on the news.
The place lokos amazing and you two definitely deserve a few pleasures after the hiking you've done. Enjoy the apartment and especially the wine! Any ideas where you will be off to next, seeing as the 45 days are almost up?
