Buenos Aires, Argentina
March 25, 2010
Trip to South America, 2010

So after waking up in the morning, checking out of the hotel, getting a cab to the airport and finding first that it is the wrong airport, and second, the airline had cancelled our tickets because they had not been paid for within 24 hour of reserving them.  Kind of complicated there, because it had not yet been 24 Hours and there was no way for online payment.  But, the plane was at the other airport and full they said so we would have to buy a ticket for the next day and the only tickets available were first class.  Well everything else was booked for the trip and this set us off a day, but with no choice went back into town, booked a hotel and then went exploring again.  This time making it to the cemetery in recoleta. Ended the day with dinner in an older restaurant and had chicken maryland… not sure why there is a banana on it deep fried.  The next day, to the airport to find there is no first class section on the plane, but told they will fix it at the next airport.  We spent a total of about 7 hours during the rest of the trip in different waiting rooms for them to refund the difference.  At the end of the trip in Buenos Aires they said they would refund it, but it would take 15 days.  It never happened, it ended up having to be fraud.  The credit card company couldn’t get them to even talk to them.  But, new country to us it was!
