What's new, Buenos Aires?

We were able to get a steal on luxury bus tickets from Iguazu to Buenos Aires--cama bus (bed bus) for less than the price of a regular (non-reclining seat) bus. The only catch was that we had to rush back from the Brazilian side of the Falls in order to board the bus at 2 in the afternoon. The price of the ticket included dinner at the bus company's private restaurant, complete with a 3 course meal and servers in tuxedos!

The seats on "camabuses" are wider and recline more than regular bus seats.

Complimentary champagne and cookie (with headphones plugged into the audio for the movie)
