It’s a self service café with some helpful stuff but I was disappointed that they didn’t...

  • great ice creams

    Hopefully for me, very close to where I was staying I had La Baska(for empanadas) and TRENTINO for ice creams. Argentinians are crazy for ice cream (helado in Spanish) and they usually have many places to find good flavors. Trentino is one of the good ones, with a great variety of flavors and I think normal prices. I found two of them in the city...

    -Rosario is about 300km away from Buenos Aires and belongs to Santa Fe province. Many companies connect the two cities with many daily buses.

    Rosario is full of psychologists! It was very weird for me meeting so many of them (even the girl that was next to me on my way to Rosario from Buenos Aires at the bus was a psychologist) but at the end I learnt that the local university is responsible for that. The days after I noticed that Argentina in general is a paradise for psychologists...
