Grumpy Old Women
The flight itself was pretty uneventful but the bus I took to the hostel was an experience in itself. It was much cheaper than a taxi, but talk about slow! It took me about 2 hours to get to the hostel. As I was getting out of customs, I noticed this old woman who was yelling at practically everyone in her way. She, of course, ended up at my bus stop so she preceded to complain to me about how slow the buses were and how no one was helpful. I was tempted to tell her that she would get better service if she paid more and took a taxi, but I bit my tongue.
She yelled at the bus driver about every 5 minutes to tell him to hurry up and screamed at a girl who was sitting next to me on the bus because she had answered her phone. Finally, around 12AM I arrived at the hostel and was so exhausted I just fell asleep.
Relivin the hostel days
Me encanta BUENOS AIRES
Here are the highlights:
- Tango festival: The weekend we were there they just happened to be celebrating national tango day...so they closed down the main street and had live music and dancing. Unfortunatley, the guy I danced with didn't quite follow the 8 moves I learned, so as you can tell from the pictures he probably wasn't thrilled to be dancing with me. Haha
- Futbol semifinals - We didn't actually go to the game (it was a long, all day event on a super hot day), but Pearl and I went to a soccer bar (I think it was even called "I Love Futbol") and watched the game. It was actually quite uneventful because it ended 0-0. Sorry all you soccer fans, I just don't think it's for me. After the game Pearl and I met a nice Colombian who was advertising free hugs....so of course we hugged him. There's not much that you can get for free in this world anymore! :)
