... had started enforcing my rule that if I don't know the Spanish word for something I want I can't buy it; I am hoping this will help me improve my vocabulary. I made soup and chickpeas (garbanzos) for lunch. I befriend an Argentinian who didn't speak any English. Google translate is a dream. He took me to a water tower with great view of the city. After we hung out at the hostel having a few beers before my bus. I got the hostel called me a taxi. The taxi was an unmarked one without ...

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 ...

Towns in Argentina and Chile follow a grid network of one-way streets which are confusingly named after important dates in the country's history; take a wrong turn down 25 de Mayo instead of 9 de Julio and you'll end up going round in circles and never leave. The grid network I recognised as I took a taxi from the bus station, but one thing was new: the narrow one-way streets I was familiar with were here replaced ...
