good experience. Most people spoke at least a little English so between my simple phrases and their limited understanding of English, communication worked very well.

Final comments
Ditto above! And...Buenos Aires is a city of LOVE. It is everywhere, from lovers in the parks and cafes to the warmth you get from people in the restaurants and shops and even on the streets. In addition, the people are extraordinarily educated and sophisticated. Especially the older individuals who were educated before the dictators. And boy is everyone beautiful! Uncannily so! You'll see!
