Ok…a girl could get used to this…

Leaving the ever colorful Brazil we flew another eight hours further from the equator

over the Andes to Argentina.

And found ourselves in a beautiful small town outside the city of Buenos Aires.

San Isidro.

The streets were cobbled…the air was cool…crisp

Argentina09 037

Our hotel was the epitome of class and charm

Another once mansion... that now held 20 rooms…

each beautiful with 20 foot ceilings and tall tall doors and windows.

Inside was a stained glass ceiling that looked down over the common area…

A beautiful place to read…relax

At night they would turn down the sheets and place a chocolate on our pillow….fresh flowers were in the room….each day...

Like I said…A girl could really get used to this

We would enjoy a leisurely breakfast of medialuna’s like a croissant and fruit and yogurt…

In the solarium in the back courtyard

Argentina09 070 Argentina09 084

Argentina09 068 Argentina09 076

With cafe con leche….mucho leche

And a morning paper in any language you desired…

Argentina09 074-1

We spent the weekend just relaxing…strolling the streets…Meeting some great folks...finding a flea market…having more cafe...doing nothing...and everything.

Argentina09 028-1

Oh....and gorging ourselves silly….

Ivy Lane…you asked for food pics…well buckle your seatbelt!

The wine and the steak in Argentina is bar none!

Argentina09 049

This zero calorie concoction is actually tenderloin covered in a Gruyere sauce

lordy lordy…

After a wonderfully relaxing and filling... ahem... weekend

…we headed to the Metropolis of Buenos Aires…

More on that in my next post…

Now I have a need to hunt down a media luna and some cafe con leche…

sigh.

You are so right...a girl COULD get used to that...I would like to try. You are certainly enjoying the lap of luxury as well you should. The food looks divine...and those croissants (I usually say NO, but would have to bend), honestly...my mouth is watering!
It would be so much fun to bicycle around there...just beautiful.
Enjoy...thanks for sharing!

This looks just GORGEOUS! My dream home has one of those "solariums" in the center of the main sitting area as well.....I mean, we do have access to greenhouses so it should be easy to construct :)
