From The Atlantic To The Pacific: From Buenos Aires To Valparaiso » »

 

The gang at La Cabrera

 

Taking a 7pm bus leaving from Puerto Iguazu the night before, we arrived into Buenos Aires at 12:45pm the next day.

Fun fact: at this point I would have arrived into Buenos Aires in all 4 modes of transportation (air, train, ferry, and bus) within a span of 5 months (yes, cool story bro).

It’s good to be back so soon.

 

 

While everyone else went exploring on the same itinerary I did 4 months ago, I went to Galerias Pacificas to go shopping for some missing and broken items on the trip: iPhone 5 charger ($75 USD!!!), light waterproof jacket ($110 USD!!!)…even with the peso in freefall, things can get expensive in BA!

After reconvening at the hostel at 5pm, we then headed to La Cabrera in the Palermo Soho neighborhood for the 40% off happy hour (40% off all menu items and wine!) from 6:30-7:45pm. Unfortunately, we missed the happy hour by half an hour so we settled for regular dinner instead, which wasn’t so bad: their malbec house wine goes for $10 USD a bottle, and a ribeye steak for 2 goes for about $30 USD:

Afterwards we headed to a nearby Gelato store on Honduras street for dessert:

 

We then hung around Palermo Soho for a bit, finding a bar around Plazoleta Julio Cortaza to get to know one another better:

We then wrapped up our Monday night with bona-fide Argentine tango at Villa Malcolm (40 pesos per person) at 1am:
