At about 1am I suddenly realise I'm in Buenos Aires and people are going out. This is after sleeping through the European Championship final. Apparently Spain won 4-0. I've done that before. I didn't catch a minute of England-Brazil when they met in World Cup 2002. I was still asleep recovering from another big night out in Glasgow. I didn't miss much anyway.
I think one of the reasons I go out a lot is I'm scared I'll miss something if I don't. Life doesn't just happen in bars and clubs, there is more out there to be enjoyed. Right now though I can't get out of that rut of poisoning myself every night. I'm staring through my computer screen, not paying any attention to the chess moves before me, when I pull myself together and throw a shirt on. Fifteen minutes later I'm catching the tale end of the party at the other hostel, everyone is hammered and we're looking for a place to go out. The pretty Scottish girl from the other night is there, but I've been relieved to know that she was hanging out of the bus window throwing up on the way to the club. Classy girl. Scots eh?
With nobody really in the mood to go far afield, someone (probably me) has suggested the club next door. This looks like a serious dive. It's free entry for girls, but a whopping 80 pesos for guys. Midnight robbery. Still I can't be bothered trailing around anymore and as it's getting late, it's going to have to do. In we pile to the sounds of some decent techno and house.
The place is crawling with hookers and one giant transvestite. Now I've no idea if the guy that's talking to the he/she knows it's a he/she and isn't bothered anyway, or he genuinely thinks this is a gorgeous tall blond with massive breasts. He/she hasn't half had some amount of work done on, errr, themselves. All power to you. Not my cup of tea and although he/she is trying to catch my eye, I decide to look elsewhere.
Elsewhere being the bottom of a bottle. Once again the booze flows, and once again I leave empty handed. The Scottish girl has been canoodling with some American dude for the night so that's off limits, and I've no idea who is a hooker and who isn't. I wonder if paying for a sympathy cuddle is wrong. Also everyone in the club seems to be wearing sunglasses. Now I reckon that most of them think they look like Puff P Diddy Daddy or whatever his name is now, but in reality how the fuck are you meant to see? It's pitch black for goodness sake. Upturned collars and bling jewellery complete the look, but really they just look like naff wannabes. After lfailing to for anyone of note, I decide it's time to call it a night. At least I've not far to walk in the pouring rain.
