One Week in Buenos Aires

When we left off, Logan and I had just spent an extended weekend in Santiago, and were unfortunately feeling a little drained. Logan couldn't find shoes in his size (seriously, that's a real problem) so we hadn't been able to go out to a club or do any dancing, something I really wanted to make…
