and it was the best bus ride yet. The seats went completely flat and
I could choose what movies I wanted to watch. I choose 2012 in
English and The Notebook in Spanish. The woman sitting next to me was
nice. She had her Theology degree and was studying law. She was a
massage therapist and a Christian
BA. College is free in Argentina.
I took a 5 hour walking tour of part of BA today. The guide and our
group was really cool. We saw the most beautiful and unique cemetery
ever. And a giant robot flower. We had to pretend not to be in a
group when the bus came to pick us up so they wouldn't pass us by.
Whoever could act like they were not in a group the best won an
Argentinian Oscar. We called them an Argie.
I saw a giant poster at the bus station advertising a Michael Buble
concert in March so I think South America is supportive of the Gay
This hostel has everything. Walking tours. Tango tours. Bar.
Restaurant. Soccer matches booking. I'm probably going to a soccer
match on Sunday.
I met two Canadian pilots who gave me good flying advice
from California named Homer. Thats a weird name.
I still love BA, this city is great. Ive been here 3 days, and each
day I take the walking tour of a different neighborhood of the city.
I'mmeeting so many people from all over.
I had drinks and a great steak dinner with three girls last night,
Irish, Brit, and NYCer. It was so great but a local, sweet, old man
thought I was hitting on his wife, but I wasn't really. He was very
funny and took pictures of us.
I booked the soccer match for Sunday. I cant wait. Apparently there
are hooligans who make you sing, piss on you for the higher seats, and
climb the 20 foot fence near the goals whenever there is a score
going to be great.
I met this guy from Israel who looks a lot like Winfree. He told me
its mandatory for all citizens of Israel to join the military after
high school. Three years for boys and two years for girls. Crazy.
Its like that movie, Starship Troopers only its real life.
BA is a magical city. Its huge and beautiful (twss). People eat late
and go out to the nights clubs from 2 am to 5 am. So crazy. I like
meeting other travelers and asking where they've been. There are so
many great stories. I might try to join a club I created called the
contents to join (and then sum them up). I meet a couple of girls who
went to Antarctica and saw whales.
Its also pretty easy to become Facebook friends with other travelers.
You just ask their email and then Facebook them. Its a good way to
keep in touch and get travel advice later. One of the Aussies took
the ice cream bike from a local and he was riding around. It was
I might go on the bus tour tomorrow.
Friday night was pretty good. There was a party at the hostel and we
had some drinks and played Uno with some Brit girls. Terminator 3 was
on in the background.
Saturday was good too. I went to the Colon Theater which has such and
interesting history and its suppose to be one of the top 5 theaters in
for the tour so I just stared at him, meanly. He came to me after I
bought my ticket and said he was sorry. I said todo bien. Haha There
was a room in the giant chandelier at the top of the theater we
weren't allowed in but violinist are.
Then I went to the Malba, modern art museum with a couple of girls.
It was very cool and they an exhibitions with colors that changed
depending on your perspective. I like art now.
Last night I went to a Tango show from 10:30 to midnight. It was
pretty impressive. Those dancers have skill. I liked the dancing but
didn't care for the music and singing. It was a little hot and some
old lady had here knees all up on me so that wasn't good.
Soccer is tonight. And then I will try to pack my time with cool
events Monday and Tuesday.
Soccer math Sunday night was pretty cool
b-c of some confusion with our tour guide but we made it in OK. We had
to go two at a time through the twirling entrance booth things and I had
to get really close to this NYC guy. It got pretty loud at the start
and whenever anyone scored a goal. We also had to wait 30 minutes after
the game for the away fans to leave before us so there would be no
fights. The away fans were throwing water balloons at the home fans
from above. I also saw the Oscars in Spanish. I need to see The Artist
when I get back home.
Monday I went to their white house, its pink over here, where their
woman president works and lives. We got to go into their oval office
and I took a video of it
when their flag was made. The American Flag is older than their flag,
but Argentina and America have the two oldest flags on this side of the
world I also went to this Bomba del tiempo underground drum concert
last night. It was really neat. Like drums mixed with martial arts
mixed with Spanish people. Today I just walked around. I like ordering
coffee and just reading my book in a cafe. Its relaxing.
I fly back home tonight. Iĺl see you guys soon!
