Buenos Aires : Dear Mama

Jan 25

A week visit from my mother

 Abuja-Lagos, Lagos-Paris, Paris-Buenos Aires

Nearly 30 hours flights to cross three continents and meet her son in Buenos Aires> That is what my mother did to come and spend a week with me in BA.

What did she first notice about BA > "It is hotter here than in Nigeria!!"

 

Here is a picture to illustrate > me and my 100% Argentinian-100%French friend from Uni Maria-Julia

This is us after a slow 45 mn walk under the sun

Travelling with my mother was a new experience.

I went from moving around in buses and subte (underground) to chilling on the back seat of a diplomatic car with chauffeur!

From 10-dollars-a-night accomodation to several hundreds of dollar--a-night accomodation

From eating lomitos and panchos to leaving tips in restaurants and having family meals with the Nigerian ambassador to BA...
