Three of four flights completed and I’m feeling a bit in need of a horizontal surface on which to sleep. With a long lay over here I can’t recheck my bag for some time – several hours I think – so not much in the way of comfortable seating on the “wrong” side of the check in and security gates.
The air Canada flight to Toronto was nothing to write home about, but my onward international connection was great. Two of the best in-flight meals I’ve ever had and lots of leg room. Who knew?
Buenos Aires is a massive city. It took over an hour to drive from one airport to the other. We went through city centre which was good for a bit of rubber necking. Seems like a pretty clean place with wide well maintained major roads. Toll roads I think seeing
as we went through three toll booths. The suburbs appear to be very high density living with tall quite ugly all similar apartment buildings packed pretty close to each other.
we also drove by the port and along the coast a bit. The port is massive.
So far I’ve discovered very few people who speak any English. Not the driver, not the airport info desk person, not the food servers. Those are I guess the only people I have talked to. But much less English spoken here than in Kathmandu for instance. Or anywhere else I’ve been come to think of it. I’m very glad I brought my spanish/English dictionary! Also glad I don’t get too worried about having to muddle along in sign language and guess work based on the context of the situation.
next stop Ushuaia ?….
