I came back from my fakecation and I’m already full force in the throes of work! On Friday, I hopped on a red-eye and am back in Buenos Aires again. I spent Saturday trying to recover from the grueling flight, Sunday on a day-trip to Tigre about an hour from the city, and today working until well after 9pm!
Since I already saw all the major attractions in Buenos Aires last time, I’m spending a significant portion of my after work hours feasting like a queen. Already in the three days I’ve been here, I’ve had one 4 course meal at another puerta cerrada (I’m really loving these hidden restaurants), an 11 course molecular gastronomic dinner, and just got back from another 4 course tasting at a Peruvian/Japanese fusion restaurant. I feel like a lil’ fat kid at this point. I’m pretty sure Mr. T isn’t even going to recognize me when I’m home in a couple of weeks. Don’t worry, Mr. T – there will be more of me to love!
Anyway, while I’m here, I do have one major goal which I haven’t been able to achieve in the two prior times I’ve been here. My Argentinian colleagues laugh whenever I admit it to them. But, still… if I could just accomplish this one thing, it would make me so happy. Ready to know what it is? I want a picture with one of the professional dogwalkers here. The city is full of professional dog walkers making a killing by walking anywhere from 6 to 10+ dogs at a time, and I get a kick out of seeing it. How on earth are they even able to get control of those doggies? I can barely keep a pup walking straight!
Here’s a pic that I snapped last time I was here:
I wasn’t satisfied with this pic because: 1) he doesn’t have enough dogs, 2) he’s not looking at the camera, and 3) I didn’t get one of me holding the leashes either. I have to get a better photo op this time around! As Barney Stinson (kudos you’re also a HIMYM fan!) would say, “Challenge accepted!”
Have a great week!
Have you ever had any have silly “must do” things when you’re traveling or photo ops you’ve been dying to get?
