Week in Buenos Aires with Frank

sunny 33 °C

We spent a few days with the kids as Caro was working and we took them one day to the children’s museum. This is a nice museum in a big shopping centre in town and there are a lot of different rooms with in each them a theme where the children can learn about real stuff… There is the bank, a Mc Donald, a milk farm, a TV station, a radio station, a newspaper, a water company, a tax office, a court of justice, a haulage company… The kids have interactive games to teach them about each subject. They can even write a paper, speak on TV after dressing up in all sorts of costumes… This is a very good museum and I would highly recommend it to anyone…

We went the second day to try to do a bus tour of the city… but we did not know where to go and we walked to a mall to get money… and we took some photos of the kids on some nice wicker chairs…

As we went round the city on foot and got to the bus stop only to find out that all the tickets had been sold!!!! … hum… kids crying we decided to go bowling and then go for an ice cream.. And let me tell you they deserved it…

Diego said he had a friend that lived one hour from there flat in the country. He plays polo and has a very nice house surrounded by stables and of course a swimming pool. All the kids wanted to get in the pool as soon as we arrived. We had great fun jumping in and playing. I went with Mick and gathered wood to make a bar-be Argentinian style. We lit a fire alongside the bar-be and then they put the hot embers under the grill to cook the food. After lunch Teo and Hayden enjoyed looking after the kittens and playing with all the kids. Every one got on really well and we stayed there till late in the evening before.

We also went to Parque Norte which is a sport complex where you have pools, tennis courts, football courts etc.. The great thing about the pool where we went is that they do a doctor's check before you get in... Checking your heads for head lices and your feet for athlete's foot and verruca. Not bad I thought!! there are slides too but they do not work during the week so we could not have a go... restaurants, bars everything is there too!
