Made it in good time to Beunos Aries airport to meet Clare who was flying in from Heathrow. It was lovely to see her after all this time as she walked through the arrivals gate.

Spent a little time exploring the Palermo area where we were before heading off to watch the football game between River Plate and Arsenal (not the London club).

Once in the River Plate Stadium the atmosphere was incredible, not suprising as it's one of the most famous teams in Argentina.

You can't help but stand with the fans and get into the spirit of it all.  The grandstand behind the goal did not stop chanting and banging drums the whole time, even when the opposition scored the first goal. After a three red cards between the two teams, River Plate triumphantly walked off the pitch with a 3-1 victory.
