4pm sunday, while walking back form evita's tomb and only 1/2 block up from the gorgeous Alvear hotel on avenida alvear,my wife was mugged by the passenger on a motorcycle. she was crossing the side street with 2 of us and the motorcycle passenger came up behind her and twisteed her neck and robbed her of her watch and tried for her braclet . by the time my daughter and i reacted, i slammed his head into the wall and chased him until he hopped on the back of the motorcycle
whole thing took 15-20 seconds
we were very congnizant of this kind of crime but you must assume that it can happen in even the nicest and allegedly safest areas of BA.
