Jan, are you a tour guide?

I agree with Heart of C ... 5 days will just give you a small taste of Buenos Aires.

Get yourself a good guide book and make lists from your reading, of what you would like to see and do .. where are you staying? do you know the hotel or neighborhood?

While you are here, maybe there will be a special show somewhere, Tango, Art, Music event .. so if you like, you could say when you will be here.

I have seen plus size clothing shops, but I am not sure exactly where, one I think is on Peña .. there are probably large size shoes.. they don't do half sizes ..

An organized tour or two within BA would be good for you.. look into the Cicerones ( free) and the Big Open Yellow Bus ..
