Argentina Day 24: Palermo and Life-Changing Croissants
We got up a little earlier today and headed back to Palermo. Our first mission was to go to a loose-leaf tea shop called "Tealosophy" that was recommended to me by a buddy in San Francisco. We wandered for a bit and couldn't find it, so we gave up and went to a random cafe on the roundabout in Palermo... which was BRILLIANT.

All done with Palermo for the moment, we headed onto the subway back to Florida area, and up to Retiro, so we could start a long walk back to the apartment. There was a cool gaucho store there with some nice belts. We walked down Calle Florida, shopping for gifts. I found myself a leather belt and one for my buddy Alex too. We took a break at Galleria Pacifico shopping mall... and bought yet another baked good!! Tart & Coffee!!! Why not!

|Yep, had to try that weird Patagonia Burger King burger|
|It was good and weird|
We got back to Av. de Mayo, and there was some sort of street fair going on. People were grilling meat on some massive sidewalk area. We weren't sure if it was for sale or not, but it looked pretty good. Lots of great arts and crafts there too.

Anyway, back we went to our apartment to "pre-drink" before going out somewhere. (We ended up just staying at our place and chatting for ages). Ben and Sarah, our friends from Iguazu Falls came over along with their friends Henry and Lucy (also British)... everyone was SO GREAT!!! What a nice bunch of people.

|Good times :)|

And a few minutes later... asleep!
