    My family lived in the Arenales section of BA for a few years. I still resided in the states at that time but I made a couple of extended visits. It's a beautiful city and I've managed to keep some very close friends from those trips.

    It was pre-cycling in my life but I can tell you that riding down there would take guts. The cars don't follow any kind of vehicular laws. That aside, I think it would be a great place for a ride but I don't know any specific routes.

    Keep close eye on your wallet too...

    thank you both! yes we're staying in recoleta / barrio norte border, which i know is the nicer area. i know the streets are busy but i'll definetely check out the nature preserve on the other side of puerto madero.

    i got a great map with subways too.

    probably take a 2 day trip up to iguazu too, i'll post pics when return. oh and i was going to do the ferry to uruguay too, maybe that might a quieter place to go exploring for the day

    i leave sunday - i'm super excited, this will be first trip really really far away, so can't wait to walk around/explore the city and sights.

    i've been studying and reading about city and argentina for months, i'm an earlybird and out the door by 6:30am, so i'll have to adjust myself to the late dinners and long nights

    thanks again
