Miki Fernandez's birthday party, part 2
I know they had hard economic times and riots, but life goes on. That is hardly any reason to cancel Christmas. Walking along the main drag, we passed by the centre of the previous week's riots and the acrid odour of where the stores burned was fresh. The good news is the rioters got a McDonald's, the bad news is they didn't get all of them in town. We arrived there and the lot- Sebastian, Chino, Adrian, Alejandra, Eduardo, Nancy, Marielena were there and they noticed my t-shirt, "I DON'T TRUST PRESIDENT CLINTON OR HER HUSBAND". Everybody there, including me, signed Miki's card underneath the table and passed it on to the next. We sang happy birthday in Spanish punctuated by a rebel yell. If I didn't know Miki just turned 24, I would mistake him for 16. It would take two of him just to fill up a chair. I was sure our raucous lot would get thrown out of there at any minute. Because Alex had to be up at 8 the next morning, we left the party early and we saw more of the main drag lit up at night. I am glad I attended Miki's party. Alex's friends are ones I would have chosen for myself.
Dont call anyone at this time....its a typical way of life in Argentina...above all in Provincias where the hot summer keep from make nothing after lunch time... so people stay at home at this hours sleeping and letting pass by the most stiffling hours
Paseo de la Costa
It's placed at Partido de Vicente Lopez, just near the City of Buenos Aires. You could have lunch and then enjoy a nice walk through the river coast. Swimming it's not allowed, due to contamination. But still, you could have a great time with some company. Don't go very late, unless you have a car.
Just a note : Paseo de la Costa is not the same as Parque de la Costa.
The last one is a funfair and it's located at Tigre
Art in a shopping mall
This is a must-see place due to the beautiful painting that is in the ceiling, right in the middle of the mall, above the fountain.
The shops are all first-class. You can get clothes, leather goods, shoes, books, etc. There's a big food court on the basement. For an average local this is a pricey place, but not for you guys! cos you'll divide the tap price by 3!
