Trivia question - Which is the busiest airport in the world?
sandwich with ham and cheese, cereal bar and sweet plus the ubiquitous hot sweet black coffee on tap. Arriving in Pacheco our host Christian is waiting at the bus stop. He suggests we grab our bags and get into his car as quickly as possible as this is not a good area to linger in. On the way back to his home he tells us more about his life and family. Where they live land and property are cheap so it is inhabited by many poorer people so to protect themselves they have 3 German shepherds. They have a large piece of land with the main house and Christian’s studio where he has given us his double bed plus a swimming pool. His Dad Janos has a very interesting history, Russian grandparents, and Hungarian parents, was born in Austria and now lives in Argentina. He cooks a BBQ with the traditional spicy sausage, on huge link about 1 metre long which is cooked whole then cut into pieces.

TORTUGUITAS 2, COUCHSURFING WITH CHRISTIAN
FRIDAY 12 FEBRUARY – Christian leaves for work whilst we stay behind to relax a bit and enjoy the pool. We buy beer, cheese, salami and olives for lunch with Janas then fit in a siesta before he takes us to the train station. For the 45 minute journey from General Lemos to F Lacroze in the city it is only A$1.35 (23p). The connecting subway takes us to our next host’s home in the city. He is at work but left instructions for us to leave the bags with the janitor and return at 9pm. Corrientes Street is full of cheap clothing shops but after a couple of blocks it is repetitious so we settle into a café. Oswaldo has told us he is cooking us a meal for 9pm so we arrive at about 10 minutes to and get reprimanded for arriving early! He has his own costume jewellery shop and lives alone in his apartment. He asks us lots of questions and seems to find our answers strange. He has read a lot about the British Isles and believes we have afternoon tea with a cake stand! Tomorrow he is going out in the morning to an exercise class and it sounds like he expects us to leave at the same time. He suggests we return at 7pm in time to go to the theatre with him. In bed we discuss this and decide that we have already seen enough of BA (we had hoped Oswaldo might have been able to show us different areas) so will opt out and move on.
