        ... But hey it was good. Then Gustavo pulled out the ketchup. I told them how, when Nichole and I went to a pizzeria in Fort Collins with Davi and Matheus and Vini, they did that and we stared in disgust. Ketchup on pizza?! Why?! But I had to try it. When in Brazil, do as the Brazilians do, right? Well, it wasn't bad. I still think it would be gross on New York pizza, though. I had Gustavo send a video snapchat of me eating it to Matheus and Nichole and Davi. The ...

        ... nights returning at 10am when people are going to work. It just ruins the next day.. They have it all wrong!

        Next I was in Buenos Aires.. A nice city I quite liked it.. But still a big city. So many theatre shows around it was like New York. I really wanted to go to a soccer match here, one night the two city rivals played, Boca vs River plate. It's rated as one of the greatest sporting events you will ever see.. They go nuts.

Now I ask you, does this sound shady, or does this sound shady? We found the office, and were asked how much we wanted to exchange. Miguel then left the room with our money, and we thought that was the last time we would see either him, or our money. Within two minutes he was
        back with a roll of Pesos, and as he only spoke ...

        ... chorizo, kidneys, cow intestines and liver! Yet still the food kept coming! We also got some small bowls of mashed potato, swede and apple sauce plus two different bowls of salad! Tony´s not keen on offal so although he tried a bit, most of it was left to me, mind you I didn´t eat much of the large intestine! (When I squeezed it, something was coming out of it and it put me right off!)

        We did our best but even though we had hardly eaten ...

The highlight of the stay was Anna and I kicking some serious **** in a beer pong tournament and nearly knocking out two of the staff in the semi finals. They have never been beaten and looked genuinely concerned when we got them down to one cup. We ...
