Move Over, Niagara!!

A bit of a “photo-dump” today to get everyone up to speed on our last few days πŸ˜€ Enjoy!

Before we took off for Iguazu Falls, we had another lovely afternoon/evening exploring Buenos Aires:

First, we mistook a children’s orchestra concert venue for the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes…

First, we walked into what we thought was the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes...

Totally looks like a fine arts museum, right?!

Instead we had stumbled upon a free children's orchestra concert :P

Aw, well, a happy mistake πŸ˜€ we stuck around for a song or two and then snuck back out…

We found the BsAs mechanical flower – it blooms at sunrise and closes at sunset each day.

Then we found the real fine arts museum!

The next day we geared ourselves up for our 18 hour bus-ride to Iguazu Falls!

Apparently, this is a pretty common form of transportation around Argentina. It was surprisingly comfortable! Reclining chairs, meals & drinks were served, movies were played - I was rather impressed!

As nice as that bus was - our hotel room was a sight for sore eyes :D

A few muddy spots, aside, it was a very easy, enjoyable hike (good thing, because truth-be-told, we were both exhausted from that bus ride...)

After another 18-hour bus ride back to Buenos Aires (this time, it was admittedly harder all around :/), we grabbed some delicious pizza and beer and checked into our next airbnb spot:

Pizza portuguesa & Quilmes beer :D

Our airbnb spot in Montserrat BsAs is phenomenal! If only we had been able to book this place for our first week here rather than just the two nights we're spending in BsAs this time around...
