    All Blacks vs Pumas

    The reason I went to Buenos Aires the first time was because the All Blacks (from New Zealand - my country!) were playing the Pumas - the Argentina team.
    The New Zealand Embassy helped a big group of us to book tickets to the game and off we went!

    It was a great experience seeing an team like the All Blacks playing outside of NZ for me. Although it was raining most of the time which made it a little uncomfortable the atmosphere was great.

    Safety at International sporting events can sometimes be an issue but I felt safe at all times in the stadium and there was no ill feeling from Argentinian fans either during or after the game.

    One thing that I should note... the toilets inside the stadium are really not very nice. They are squat toilets which although I have seen in Asia I have never seen in Latin America before!

    Food and drink is available inside the stadium by "vendedores" who come around the stands shouting their wares.
