Well, here we are, my last major riding day into Buenos Aires, Argentina. After over 20,000 miles, 170 days and nights touring through America, Central, and South America I get on my trusted steed tarni, my KTM 1290 Super Adventure.
After spending two relaxing nights in Bahia Blanca, I was itching to get to Buenos Aires.
The highways were mostly pretty good. I took Ruta 3, then Ruta 225 for this 8-hour journey trekking through towns such as Coronel Pringles, Sierras Bayas, Azul, Saladillo, Lobos, Monte Grande on my way to Buenos Aires.
Fuel availability/quality was still an issue, but my pump was no longer throwing up alerts. I always get premium gas where I can, it is more expensive, but for modern bikes, you nearly always need hi-octane fuel.
I took lunch along the way in Saladillo and rested for about an hour. I was staying in Palermo District in Buenos Aires.
Palermo is a neighborhood, or what they call a barrio of Buenos Aires. It is located in the northeast of the city, bordering the barrios of Belgrano to the north, Almagro and Recoleta to the south, Villa Crespo, and Colegiales to the west and the Río de la Plata river to the east. It is quite a leafy area with lots of parks, cafes, and restaurants.
Once I arrived, I parked right outside a pub and took in a liter of beer over about an hour before a short 200-metre ride to my AirBNB Apartment.
Buenos Aires is Argentina’s big, cosmopolitan capital city. Its center is the Plaza de Mayo, lined with stately 19th-century buildings including Casa Rosada, the iconic, the balconied presidential palace. Other major attractions include Teatro Colón, a grand 1908 opera house with nearly 2,500 seats, and the modern MALBA museum, displaying Latin American art. From Wikipedia
