My day in Argentina

sunny 21 °C

I'm leaving Sweden and am heading to south America. The first place I'll be visiting is Argentina. My flight from Sweden leaves at 8:30am and will take 16 hours to get there, so when I arrive it will be during the night. The hotel I'll be staying at is the circus hotel and it only cost $39 per night and I'll be staying there for 2 days, it has your standard free WIFI, free breakfast and is a 4.5-star hotel. The first thing I'll be doing in Argentina is a tour of Argentina. It’s a 3-hour tour that shows all the popular landmarks of Argentina. It's pretty affordable only costing $40 and doesn't take that much time of the day. After the tour I'm going to go on another tour but this one is a helicopter tour. The helicopter tour is 40 minutes long and gives an aerial tour of some of Argentinas oldest and historic places. Now it is a little pricey at $700 but it's well worth it c'mon it’s a helicopter ride when can you say you have done that. After the helicopter ride I'm going to watch an Argentinian soccer game. Considering there one of the top teams in the world I'm sure it's going to be a good game. The game will take around 2 hours so after that I'm going to just skip lunch and eat and early dinner, I'm going to eat at Oviedo which is a Spanish restaurant offering fantastic seafood dishes as well as several meat options. The menu has several Spanish offerings, such as Serrano ham or Spanish omelet, and a large selection of fish too. The interior is small but has comfortable booth seating. There is, of course, steak on the menu, but for those seeking something a little different, Oviedo is a great choice. I will be basic and get the steak from here. It is a little early, but I think I'm going to call it a day a little earlier than usual and head back to the hotel and get ready for my next flight tomorrow. The second place I'll be going to in south America is Peru.
