We breakfasted at the famous El Hipopótamo cafe, then began our walk to Plaza de Mayo. We walked through an indoor market and saw Belgrano’s tomb. Once in Plaza de Mayo we took photos of Casa Rosada and visited the Metropolitan Cathedral, which had beautiful mosaic floors and painted gilded ceilings. San Martin’s mausoleum was incredibly beautiful.

We walked down Calle Florida, which is a main shopping street, and had ice cream at La Florinia. We stopped at a cafe in Plaza de la Republica for beers and empanadas then headed back to San Telmo to de-sweat before dinner at Manolo with Ingrid. We ate giant steaks and delicious calamari, and got a pick-up note from some random dudes that saw us from outside the restaurant. After we finished stuffing ourselves we went to Ingrid’s favorite milonga, La Independencia.
