When in Buenos Aires

My job takes me to cool places every now and then. When I travel, I don’t always get see a whole lot of the city I’m in. For example, I’ve been in Buenos Aires for 4 days and I have spent my time working with my coworkers and attending a conference. I’ve seen the route from the airport to the hotel and then from the hotel to the conference venue so far. Oh, and a few local Starbucks for wifi usage.

Today, at Interaction South America 2014, I stood (and sat) at a booth, talked to attendees about WordPress (both .com and self-hosted), gave a brief sponsor shpeel to the conference attendees on the main stage, and chatted with local WordPress community folks about local WordCamps and about Spanish translations of WordPress.

On the way back to the hotel from our work today we finally took a moment to head off to see some sights. We saw La Casa Rosada down the street en route back to the hotel and took a brief detour so we could check it out. We made it 5 minutes before they closed so we were able to walk through many of the halls.

Does this count as a selfie?

I love courtyards, especially ones with fountains.

Check out these floors. I was afraid to step on them they’re so amazing.

After the Pink House, we wandered a bit. A few cars were not too happy with our wandering ways.

We have a Florida Street in Albuquerque too🙂

    • Perhaps that is how the educated person spells it. But when you pronounce it shhhhpeel, like I do, you spell it shpeel. I can make an allowance for shpiel, I guess.😉

  1. Hi Karen,

    I spent four months studying in Buenos Aires in 2013. It is such an incredible city! If you have some time between your hectic work schedule, try and make it to Parque tres de Febrero in Palermo! It was my favorite place to unwind on a sunny afternoon🙂

    Also, one of THE MOST INCREDIBLE restaurants I’ve ever been to is in BA- Osaka, a peruvian Japanese restaurant. If you have the time and the budget, GO! I highly recommend the “maracuya” cocktail there. To…die…for…

    And check out my #foodventures in Spain now! Would love to hear your thoughts🙂
