Buenos Aires evening


We are staying in a neighborhood where night time activities can be somewhat sketchy. Nevertheless, we had to eat, so off we went to a place recommended by our hotel (Don Ernesto’s). We had an excellent meal, starting with a very nice salad, with lots of hearts of palm. Our main course consisted of two huge cuts of meat: a rib eye, and a filet. Washed down with a very good Malbec, we needed the 8 block walk home.

But when we got outside we saw a wine shop, where we met an owner most willing to please. We bought another bottle of Malbec, Ida got a unique Malbec rose and a fine drinking Malbec. Ours is for consumption at the hotel, Ida had hers packed for travel.

Romola and I met with our new friend Carlos, who took us to a very old traditional coffee house and bar. Dust on the bottle, manually turned meat slicer, very rustic. A nice way to spend the evening!

Night time in BA.  Kind of quiet.
