I was really excited to arrive back in Argentina. I had brilliant memories of the tenacity of the Porteños, the nightlife and restaurants, the beautifully sweet medialuna croissants, the cosmopolitan, more European nature of Buenos Aires, and the stunning architecture that can be found there. Not to mention the barbecue (asado) culture, which I was able to sample plentifully during the hot days there.
Below are some pictures from my time in the city staying with my friend Pablo.
I write this perched on the fourth floor of an improbably slim restaurant in the La Candelaria area of Bogotá, Colombia’s capital and largest city. On my plate is Calentado, made up of beans, rice, onion, plenty of sausage, and a big fried egg.
