The streets cleared out. So I took a different route back to the hotel and this is what I saw along the way.
Not sure what this was but I loved the stone work and the rounded wood doors.
This entire stand was selling fake flowers. They looked so real even standing next to them.
I popped into a mall — this didn’t have the same closing time as the center of town but I wasn’t in a shopping mood. It was a huge mall, and just like the one in Uruguay, advertising was everywhere!
No visit is complete without a stop at the local supermarket. I love browsing and seeing the brands and the logos I am familiar with, with their local name. I also like seeing the popular products and you can learn a lot about a country’s cultures and likes from browsing the markets.
Here, there was quite the selection of boxed wine, and Cepita, the South American equivalent of Minute Maid.
Note: When I was there, the exchange rate was approximately 4 Argentine Pesos to 1 US Dollar. That 6.49 you see for a box of wine is actually $1.62 USD.
