One thing that I like about BA is that Buenos Aires is a city of cafes. People likes to spend a good amount of time drinking coffee, chatting with friends, relaxing alone, business meetings, a continental breakfast with newspaper/magazine reading on weekends or just to get that caffeine fix. Here when you want to meet with a friend, the invitation would be: Do you want to have a coffee? Due to the importance of cafes in Buenos Aires, there are literally hundreds of great cafes all across the city. We don’t have starbucks style of coffee shop that you purchase the coffee and leave, everyone spend at least 30-60 min at the cafes. This is an european life style, but even in Europe, cafes are not as popular as in Argentina. I guess, Argentineans like to meet and chat with friends more than anywhere else. 😉
As argentinian by choice, I’ve been meeting with friends and drinking coffee. Litardo was my classmates 7 years ago and we haven’t met each other during these years. I’m glad we finally arranged a coffee and had a good chat.
Breakfast at cafes are my favorite things to do in Buenos Aires. I love fresh toasted breads with cream cheese and jams, fresh brewed cafe con leche, and a good company of course! 😉
Look these menus…. I’m glad I have 5 weeks 4 weeks more to try all these combos.
Besides breakfast, I’ve been visiting new restaurants with friends too. This place is called Marcelo, in puerto madero, has GIGANTIC entrees. Presentation and service were very good, but as I have a very exquisite taste for restaurant food, I’ll only give 7.5/10 for the food.
Few more days until I begin to work on my research! I think a week off is enough for me to “crave” back to work! ^_^ Of course, working in here is much easier having a lady who comes everyday to do house work, plenty of restaurants and cafes to feed me (so no cooking at all), and Star to play with me at night and weekends! 🙂
Question: Do you crave to work and back to your routine when you’re on vacation?
