    ... even though we all ordered the same thing. He brought the churros and then our drinks, and lastly the dulce de leche. However, me and a few others had finished our churros by the time he brought out the dulce de leche as we did not think he was bringing it. When he saw my disappointment, he automatically brought us more churros without us having to ask. In the evening, we all went for dinner at a restaurant called El Drugstore. It was ...

    ... of General San Martín. General San Martin is one of the primary Argentine heros in the fight for independence from Spain. He is a HUGE figure in Argentina and all over the country there are streets, plazas, buildings, etc. named after him.

So if you have US $ to sell then it basically makes Argentina 2/3 of the price and hence much more affordable. For us in £, it means the difference between £1 being Ar$13 and £1 being Ar$20!!

    ... We signed up for Christmas dinner on the eve of Christmas which the 70 other people staying at the hostel did also. The hostel clearly had not expected this amount so we got a measly portion of steak and a spoonful of mashed potato each. A few had our own bbq on Christmas which for the same price as the dinner the previous night, was a feast. We finally got around to doing some touristy on Boxing Day with a few other people from the hostel. ...
