Sam woke me up for breakfast this morning as i was in the same hostel as him due to my bus dilemma last night. I had to find an alternative to the bus, because i am meeting jenny in Iguazu on the 3rd which doesn't give me much time at all if i want to see some of Paraguay first. After extensive looking the bet option seemed to be to fly to Buenos Aires and then take a bus from there. A return flight was cheaper than a one way so i booked that. we went out with the intention of going for a walk to a few places but we decided to go and find Bruno first. On our walk to his hostel we ran into him and he told us he was going to the Costanera Centre: the biggest shopping mall in south America housed within Latin Americas tallest building-  gran torre Santiago. On our walk there we passed a very interesting sculpture park on the banks of the river so we walked around it admiring the 25 or so sculptures.None of us wanted to actually do any shopping so there was no point in us being there other than to say we went there. We were hungry and thirsty and we had heard about a bar called la piojera that serves good food and these drinks called terremotos or earthquakes because after you finish drinking it and you stand up, the earth shakes. They aren't wrong, we had 2 each and we were so drunk.This led to the decision to go to a Cafe con Piernas, that we had heard so much about. It is basically a Cafe that you go into where the drinks are served by strippers. At least that was what we thought, it seemed to me more like a seedy cover to allow prostitution under a different name. I didn't see any coffee, anywhere, just naked girls, everywhere. Quite an interesting place.By the time we left it had just stared getting dark so we figured we should probably slow down the drinking a bit so we headed back to the hostel. On our way i met a guy with a skateboard so i went and did a kickflip which was pretty awesomeMaarten was due to arrive soon so we waited around for him before heading out for more drinks about 3 hours later. We walked to a bar around the corner where they ordered drinks. I didn't, the earth was still quaking for me. I don't remember much after about 4pm, but i got to bed safely
