In Iguazu we stayed at Hotel Margay. We appologize we did not see one of these rare Cats. Uknown for most people. But, here is a painting of a Margay.
My regular readers knows we are Cat lovers. The Cats Mieew is very global. Which means we could communicate in the Cat Language in Argentina and Uruguay. That's a fact. If you do not believe it, we can guide you for free (Air Tickets not included - LOL).
OK, let's start this Voyage and meet the Cats.
In Buenos Aires, the place for Cat lovers is Jardin Botanico.
Click on the photo to find out where it is - to the right. Our hotel is situated very central (left on the Map). You can have a Suite for 3 persons, breakfast included for USD 100. Restaurants etc 2-3 minutes walking distance away.
The Cats are really the Kings and Queens of the Park. All well feed and good looking. Do follow the restrictions what to do and not to to with them. i.e. Leave them as they are. Just look, not touch. But you can speak with them.
Guardians - do not forget they are predators
You can take the Subte (Subway or Metro) Linea D to Plaza Italia. You can not miss where to go when out from the Subte (The Zoo is over the next Street). The Cost is very reasonable: 0,70 Pesos ( around USD 0.22). Or you can take a Taxi. If your in the Center of Buenos Aires, the fare will be around 15 pesos (less than USD 5). The Park is spectacular. Flowers, Trees, Plants, Sculptures, Ponds (another story).
Here is some of the Cats we met in the Park:
After Lunch, we need some rest. Pls do not disturb. We can even hear your iPod.
Afternoon cleaning and refreshing
Boss - no doubt - or just well feed?
Cats do have a very good life in this Park.
Jardin Botanico is dived into several sections. This is the French on. Can you see the cat? Black and white like the person in front. Excuse moi, mes amis de la France, mais c'est que de gaieté. Contraste - n'est pas.
And, here is one more, in Palermo Florida district, where you can find Small Top Class designer fashion shops. Clue for my women readers: Honduras road and around. Prices?
Less than a Luncheon at Champs Elyseés in Paris.
On Tuesday, December 4, we went over Rio de la Plata by boat to Colonia in Uruguay.
We talked the same language. Very interisting, if I may say so, about how to live and being a Cat in Urugugay.
Back to Iguazu and Margay. The Hotel Manager have a Cat, named Evita. But Ingelin quickly named her Clara. Besides the Swimming Pool and the Frogs, she was the positive side of the hotel. That's another story.
We had some good moments together. Clara told me how it is to be a Hotel Cat and I told her about Felicia and Rosa. She loved their names and the fact they can stay outside half the year where we do live.
I did ask her: May I tell your story to my blogger friends?
She said: Miienow.
Mieu mieiaaw - miee mieew - which means: Please do not refere - I have enough challenges.
That Cat loved us - and it was mutual. It's fantastic to have contact with other living creatures on this Planet.....
On our last night in Puerto Iguazu, Clara (real name Evita) jumped up to Anna's lap. And they mieewed very intimate together. Clara was very clearly outspoken - and her meanings not to be misunderstood. We did agree with her.
By the way: If you have some minutes spare, visit:
Much more to come - joy and dramatics
