Where I stayed
It's good to be back. Isabel, our long time travel agent, says we now know more about Argentina than she does. We've been more places, that's for sure.
We're staying in Palermo, just north of the very ritsy Ricoleta, for those who know a little about BA. Our room has those lovely floor to ceiling narrow doors opening out to a little balcony overlooking the leafy street.
The flight over was 9 1/2 hours, but uneventful once we got on the plane
Our plans for the evening are to go for a walk in a beautiful old part of Palermo and find a quaint little dinner spot.
We walked around the neighborhood this afternoon and found a wonderful shop for tea with outside seating. It was so nice sitting there with the gentle breeze ruffling through our hairs--this isn't too much for you, is it?
They're just so civilized here with their custom of bringing a small cookie or dab of sherbet in a dish to accompany your tea. Oh, and with a shot glass of soda water, too, for some reason. I don't find soda water very refreshing--it's kind of salty. Whenever you order water here --and water costs as much as a diet coke for crying out loud--they ask you, "con gas o sin gas?"
With bubbles or w/out bubbles?
Sin, thank you.
