... They were massive and very smelly. They didn't seem to be too bothered by the yapping dogs being right in their face!!


One thing we were not aware of before arriving in Argentina was the Blue Rate. The government is artificially keeping the exchange rate low if you use atms or cards. This means you can change dollars on the street and get 14 pesos instead of 8, meaning everything is almost half price. We did not have ...

... so I thought it was going to be stupid expensive. I was very surprised when it cost half the price of my last one! I got my ticket and waiting for my bus. As I waited for my backpack to be loaded on the bus I realized I wasn't nervous anymore. Normally on travel days I am terribly nervous and miserable, but today I felt fine! My observations: You don't have to speak the same language to make friends; Befriending a South American who speaks small amount of English is gonna be my best ...

The male runners are generally very sexy, they even wear short running shorts. ...

My first stop was to walk out on a pier 'there's nothing special about it but you feel like you're in the middle of the ocean.' I walked along the sidewalk beside ...

... my info for identity theft (my passport number was on my ticket that I showed him). Lesson number two learn lie about your birthday. After 15-20 ish mins he realizes this isn't going anywhere or after he got all the info he needed he leaves. I get to Mar Del Plata and take an expensive tax ride to the hostel. I missed splitting these fees in two. I check in to the hostel and find out I am in my room alone. I also find out the hostel will be closing ...
