1. It's Hot
This week the temperatures hit 100˚F here.
2. It's Really Hot
Seriously, it's 9:00 in the evening and it's still 85˚ here.
3. Lots of Tiny Convenience Stores
Scattered around the city are these small, hole-in-the-wall stores selling soda and candy. I also discovered that I really like Mentos.
4. Exchange Rates
Due to the sharp increase in black market currency exchange rates, I can now go to a government exchange, trade pesos to dollars at 6.5 pesos/dollars, then go to a black market and exchange dollars to pesos at 12 pesos a dollar. This effectively doubles my money.
It sounds lame, but at least I have some form of reliable entertainment to use.
6. Ice Cream
Go to Buenos Aires and walk in any direction. Within 10 minutes, you will happen upon an ice cream place, most likely Freddo's, a chain restauraunt.
They really like pizza here.
Lots of steak too.
With a weekly marketplace 3 blocks from our home, and a mall next to it, I can be content spending all my money.
It seems the primary method of transportation here is either taxi or motorcycle. Most restaurants use motorcycles for delivery. We are a block away from a motorcycle dealership.
That's all, I guess. So yeah. Bye.
