just lowered the voting age

big, poor families. Votes from
the uniformed = Dictatorship?
Back to the city and to live in Hollywood, Palermo Hollywood that is!
Packed up all my stuff and road in to Baires (Buenos Aires) to look at three places and make a decision on that day. A little pressure so I jumped on the one with the best parking option to take care of Bumbles and a roof top pool for me of course. Back to life in Baires.
First days back in friendly Baires (Buenos Aires)
|Nice afternoon at Christina's pool|
|Love the foliage on the building|
|Nice man helping a old lady|
across the street for real!!!
|Weird pedestrian bridge design|
High temperatures were great for the pool, but bad for the power grid as our apartment went with out power 3 or 4 times spanning from 1 hour to 24 hours (no water the last 4 hours, which got a bit scary). Living on the 4th floor the biggest trick was not getting caught in the elevator during a power loss. I heard screams a couple times and nearly got caught by about 3 seconds the day of my first BBQ on the roof. The tenants made the best of that power outage coming up to the roof for some pool time to get out of their air conditionless apartments.
BBQ (Asado) on the roof of my apartment building with no power.

New Years Resolutions : Pick your battles and make a fool of yourself more often
Met up with some Buenos Aires Pub Crawl people at Marco's house. We managed to eat even though everything is closed after 8pm. In Argentina no one goes to the clubs until 1am or later so most people celebrate the passing of the year at someone's place then go to the clubs. We made our way to Asia de Cuba a more expensive place on the waterfront in Puerto Madero. On NYE it usually costs $60 USD for entry, but Marco swung us passed that, thanks dude. Over all a great night, but I have to ask just one question: IF IT'S NYE AND YOU ARE AN EXPENSIVE BAR WITH AN ENORMOUS ENTRY DON'T YOU THINK YOU WOULD STOCK TEQUILA, WTF ASIA DE CUBA, THUMBS DOWN!
|Asia de Cuba|
|Relaxing for the long night ahead|
