Happy to have arrived in Buenos Aires! Quite a trip however - my luggage got lost on the way and so far can't be traced and the flights were delayed by several hours. Here's hoping it turns up soon as I have research notes and books and music etc inside. Ended up walking around the town today trying to find socks and shower gel - not quite the start I had planned! One of the books lost in my suitcase I managed to find in a book shop, so I went to the counter to pay, they told me the price and then she realised she couldn't sell it to me as it was so old she didn't have the code so she placed it on a huge pile of books (also waiting to be coded) and said to come back next week - maybe she will have it by then....
This year is the celebration of Anibal Troilo so there should be all kinds of events celebrating his life. Apparently there were 100 bandoneon players gathered around the obelisco today but I didn't manage to see them sadly.:(
Saw tango dancers in the streets and there a tango radio show that plays all day long. I'm staying in the centre of town with a tango dancer and organiser who has a room set aside for dance classes decorated with fairy lights!
Its late here now so more tomorrow! Good night!
