... Joel had seafood again and I had chicken (shocker!). We then headed south to the downtown area. After finding a parking spot - with a similar mafia style parking to Buenos Aires, we went to Mar Del Plata's Modern Art Museum - with a large statue of a sea lion made from wrappers of a local favourite treat, the alfajores by Marta Minujin.
