We took another taxi to the Park Lezama. This tree-lined park, designed in the 1860’s, is on a small hill – very nice, and we understand that on Sunday’s they have a wonderful outdoor market. It is a community gathering location for concerts etc.

We also understand it is affecting air travel today – we hope they are all back at work tomorrow but there may be issues with the right planes in the right locations. I guess we will see what happens tomorrow as we are planning to fly to Asuncion, Paraguay in the afternoon.
The Buenos Aires International airport is 45min - 1 hour from our hotel by taxi. There is no good public transportation to the International airport. When we arrived in BsAs we were on a domestic flight, thus flew into an airport that is just a 20 minute taxi ride from our hotel – Howard Johnson.

There are up-market shops with all sorts of things! We stopped again at another upmarket 3 level shopping mall, but did not leave any money there!!
