... tour, so we said goodbye to Jessica and headed back to Cafe Tortoni to meet Adrian for lunch. We ended up eating at the café and Rob tried his first Fernet and Coke (probably his last, too!) here. Fernet and Coke is a popular drink in Argentina so Rob, always game, decided to try it.... He wasn't too impressed! :-) After lunch, we walked around Centro some more, including heading back to where we started our walking tour a ...

Day 22: Pool and Taxes

... with grilled vegetables. I have began to notice it is typical for your meal to come out 30-40 minutes after you order. This is unlike the american tradition where they rush the food out as fast as possible. I actually prefer the delayed service, it gives you time to nibble at the bread, have conversation, and build up the anticipation of the food.

After I devoured ...

Yes, Dorothy, there are TORNADOS in Argentina too.

... Traffic continued to move snowy, and at 8:20 we passed an overturned semi truck - thankfully it was in the lane nearest the meridian, and we were able to scoot by it. After that, it was smooth sailing, though we still saw the aftermath of the tornado - billboards laying on the ground, and trees and branches scattered about.

We made it to the airport, got checked in, and through security without any trouble. We sat down at our gate and noticed at the gate beside us they ...

... 8211; there is no mistaking the opening strains of a “cueca” and sure enough, out came the couples and their hankies ! ( Check back on our Big Trip blog if you want to know about the cueca ! )

There was some great takeaway food for sale, and we had empanadas freshly made and cooked in the traditional manner. Tums satisfied, we poked around the stalls and finally purchased foodstuffs to build a tasty platter for a “pica pica” dinner when ...

    While Giorgio's House was being renovated, we stayed with friends of one of the hostel owner, Ana. Claudia and Fernando were our most excellent hosts. They welcomed us into their apartment in a residential neighborhood of BA. We felt safe walking around at night. There are plenty of restaurantsand grocery stores nearby. The apartment was spotless, the WiFi strong, the water hot and the hospitality top notch. We left feeling like we had family in BA. On our last night, Fernando and Claudia cooked up the BEST empanadas we had ever eaten for me and my family, We are planning to return to BA and will stay here again!
