Day 9: A Day Out in the City

Exploring BA’s diverse neighborhoods

After breakfast, we took the subway to Teatro Colón. We went on a guided tour of this magnificent architectural wonder. We learned that this theater is the largest structure of its kind in all of South America and has the best acoustics in Latin America and is considered to be one of the top venues in the world.
The halls and the lobby of the theater were decorated lavishly and elegantly. The second floor balconies were decorated with the busts of the great composers wrapped in gold leaf.

We were able to go inside the actual theater and sit in the most expensive seats of the house. We witnessed how the crew were setting up for the upcoming show.

After the tour we headed to Palermo for lunch. We found this hip, organic restaurant with a great view of the neighborhood plaza that was absolutely delicious. Once we were done with lunch we went shoe shopping and found some great Argentine leather boots for cheap. Exhausted and hungry once again, we headed back to the hostel. 

We napped for a couple of hours and then went with some other guests of the hostel to experience the world-famous Buenos Aires nightlife. We danced the night away and met many other tourists from all around the world. It was a very fun, successful day in Buenos Aires!
