Jose: The day started off well, we found out that we could stay at our hostel, just in a different room, (pictures attached). In the room there was a sign under the fan that said "Please, turn off the fun before you leave the room." We didn't listen, but at least we turned off the fan on our way out. After leaving the hostel we headed towards Florida street to do some more shopping...Andrea's orders...and as we got to Florida street down came the rain and washed the Americans out...We ran into a café to put on our new cool ponchos (Thank you mom) and to our amazement we were the only ones walking around with bright red and green ponchos...go figure.
Thank God the rain finally stopped
After completing the shopping portion of the day which was quite loooooong, we headed over to the local chess/pool bar and played a few games with a couple of local Argentineans, they kicked my ass quite quickly and so after watching a couple great games and losing several I decided to call it a day... After attempting to pick up her jacket we headed to where else but "El Desnivel" for some amazing beef. We also got to taste Tongue which tasted like pork with a twist...Andrea did not find the taste buds amusing but she did try it(pictures attached).
After dinner we decided to hit up the local Casino to play some international Hold'em but after paying 15 pesos to get there we found out that there was no Hold'em tables so I decided to play black jack...BAD IDEA...after about an hour I was 500 pesos in the hole and decided to put my tail between my legs and leave, which unfortunately was the end of our night.
