Unexpected Delay in Resistencia
"No Buses Today"
This morning myself and my travelling companion had left Formosa early enough to catch the bus to Posadas in time to watch the sun set.. but on arrival at the bus station in Resistencia, was told that the bridge to corrientes has been blocked by piqueteros and none of the buses are running.
so this forced stay in this city which looks occasionally like a mexican city. it is not a prosperous city and walking around the centre of town makes one realizes that it is only chance that brings foreigners to places like this. people are friendly enough but the merchandise offered.. in whatever form including food is mediocre at best..
"Taxi from Bus Station"
waiting with many others to catch a taxi to downtown area.. taxi arrives and we all share a taxi and the driver is friendly enough. drops us at the plaza central. hot day and looking around nothing monumental or attractive. in fact he town presents an unattractive phase.
the taxi fare is just ten pesos.
"you get what you ask for depending on whom"
I have realized that the northern part of this great country is very poor and that money is in short supply. people dont pay large amounts of money to eat out. the taxi driver recommends places that he eats at, usually cheap fast food places..
walking around, looking for an appropriate person and he directs us to don abel at the corner of 700 bloque of calle peron.
a reasonable parillada but just about the best option at 1 pm on a hot day in resistencia in the chaco province of argentina
