We are back in Buenos Aires, but this time only for a short while. It is not our most favourite place, but it does have advantages. Right now, the main advantage is that we have friends in town, whom we will see tomorrow.
The overnight bus ride turned out to be not too terrible for me, as I managed to sleep. It’s not good sleep, but at least it was sleep! Traffic into the city was pretty bad, and so we arrived an hour later. From there, it was a quick subway ride to our hostel – it’s always nice to show up somewhere you’ve been to before as you already know how to get around town.
Our hostel is quite nice. We are in the Jewish neighborhood, and the hostel is located inside an old building. It has courtyards and a nice rooftop terrace, as well as eclectic art around the place. It’s really a nice find.
At lunchtime we spied the hostel’s owner eating something tasty, and so we inquired about it. A few blocks from the hostel and we were at a tiny parrilla (for locals, not tourists) ordering choripán. It’s a really simple meal of chorizo sausage in a crusty bread with some chimichurri sauce, but boy is it ever tasty! We took our to go and ate it on the terrace of our hostel.
