    ... have a flight in the morning. This was not my original plan, I like staying somewhere minimum 2 nights, especially after a long ass flight. However, logistics didn't allow for this as flight times/prices and hotel availability on the next leg dictated only one night. But I am not too worried as I have been to Buenos Aires before and will be staying a few nights at the end of my trip before heading home.

    ... in the Argentinian peso so they'll pay you a rate of 13 per dollar, versus the 8 per dollar you get at the bank. Felt a little badass doing it, but as long as you are discrete and careful (lots of fake $$) it's tolerated.

    ... So a new pair of shoes it is then. I'm already on the look out for running shoes so ideally if I could track down a pair of trail runners I'd be golden. How achievable that is however I dunno.
