Instead you can buy it everywhere, in all shapes, cookies, candies, icecreams... Deliciousness... this typical argentinian caramel-like sweet.
Yes I am in Argentina! And what a different world... The people talk funny Spanish, with lots of "sh" sounds, adorable! The city is very very pretty, with a street crowded with nightlife reminding me of big cities in Europe. Clubs, bars, restaurants, all together and big crowds on the streets.
I met up with Eduardo and Daniel in the hostel. Yes, it worked! I found them, so Brasil here I come! Surreal idea...
We stayed 1 full day and I decided to go horsebackriding as I enjoyed it so much a few days earlier in Tupiza
Argentina is famous for its steak, and actually the cows that I saw have a great life compared to other meat-industries. They live free on the mountains for 3-4 years. Also the horses roam around free, and if they need a horse to for example let some tourists like me ride them, or to collect the cows, they go catch them with a lasso.
We galopped a lot ont he plains, which felt amazing, and finished with an 'asado', typical argentinian bbq, amazingly good... The steak amost melted in my mouth and was from a cow of their ranch. Just added a bit of lemon and salt, but the taste was so rich.
>>note to the vegetarians:
I also used to be a vegetarian for a long time, but this is part of traveling for me know, exploring the kitchen, and I do really like the lives these cows have. Please don't comment about eating meat, if you want to tell me then just email me and I will tell you my view on it. This is my choice for now. thx :)
So this was my short encounter to Argentina, time to start driving, 3500km to go! The next day we would drive all day, and then another half a day, to arrive in the famous and amazing Iguazu Falls, and my last stop for now in Spanish-speaking South America.
