Cordoba

Lack of memory and few photos. But a great time!

Leaving Buenos Aires late Friday night we arrived in Cordoba early Saturday morning. Our first experience from a friendly, yet, COMPLETELY loco cab driver to Hostel Tango ( http://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldetails.php/Tango-Hostel/Cordoba/5353?source=googleadwordshostelsbyname&kid=314846&aid=2&gclid=CO_88Pqcy64CFUhl7AodfzmYzQ). How he managed to squeeze a car through a gap smaller than the car is beyond me. But he got us there, and quickly. We also met some really nice guys there. Alex, Eddie, Sean and Canada, Switzerland, Chile 1, Chile 2, Buenos Aires 1 and 2, Beatrice, and more. The tool of using people home countries instead of their names is prooving useful as to remember everyones name that you meet is near impossible. Luke, Switzerland, Beatrice and I took a look at a local art museum and saw the markets for a day. Eating MORE pizza in a low lighted Reggae bar then finishing the day with a meal in a Tango restaurant. The Tango dance performed by other customers is beautifully smooth to say the least. With quick bursts of movement and passion only to relax again to a smooth defined pace. Our first clubbing experience in Cordoba led to my bank card vanishing along with my favourite shirt and some pesos. But I did find out how to say ''You're the bomb'' which makes things a little more balanced. In Argentina the siesta is very important. When we realised that we were pre drinking before the club at 6pm, but some of the clubs don't even open untill 1am we thought we may be acting a little eager. Especially that in the end we did not return to the Hostel untill at least 7am, when the club was slowly kicking out. But even so, what a cracking night!

At last, some pictures and words..... ;-)

So, memory - yours? Drunken addled brain can't retain things ? Or camera memory, or restricted photo storage?!

Glad it's going well, barring the stolen bits!
