Temaikén

Whilst in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I visited the “eco park” at Temaikén. It is situated less than an hour from Buenos Aires city centre and houses endangered and less endangered species, including my favourites, tigers.

There is also a large collection of exotic birds. Parrots, flamingos etc. It was also the place that I discovered that I may have gone through a major change. I may have become child tolerant, although this by no means certain. There were lots of school children in various age groups, touring the park and they did not spoil my day. Strange!

There was an aquarium with a diver cleaning the glass. I trust he is a well paid window cleaner as there were sharks in the aquarium.

Various species of birds…

…and predators.

Montevideo

I travelled by bus from Buenos Aires in Argentina, to Montevideo in Uruguay. The trip is possible by boat in just a couple of hours but I chose the overnight, 8 hour trip. I had intended to stay for a couple of days but was disappointed, both in the lack of attractions in the city and the cost. It was quite expensive and I decided I would be happier spending the last days of my adventure, in Buenos Aires.

The highlight of my day trip to Montevideo was a visit to the World  Cup Museum.
