Buenos Aires part 2 and 2 days in Paraguay

PARAGUAY | Monday, 28 January 2013 | Views [193]

So looking back at all my posts, and feedback from readers, it seems my blogs are a teeny tiny bit food orientated!! And I'm afraid this is not going to change any time soon - hehehe!! La Desnivel in San Telmo was one of the best meals so far- I had Bife de chorizo, which I think was sirloin, and it was properly rare. In fact I think it was verging on Bleu as it was about 2 inches think and the middle was cool! Plus fries with garlic and parsley, with a few shared Calamari and a half bottle of San Telmo Malbec all to myself made an awesome meal :) The service was brilliant and friendly, despite our less than fluent Spanish. Afterwards we went tothe Gibraltar english expat pub (not chosen by me) and enjoyed the pale ale and pool games. The following day, after not much sleep due to a late night and early start, we took the fast ferry to Colonia del Sacramiento in Uruguay for a day trip. It was beautiful to walk around, but the heat was pretty intense - took lots of photos, had lunch and an ice cream- dulche de leche and swiss chocolate, then headed back on the ferry ready for another passenger's birthday night out. Again another amazing dinner- probably one of the best asian restaurants I've eaten at called Sudestada- I had pork in a tamarind sauce. The next one and a half days were spent travelling up to Trinidad in Paraguay to visit the Jesuit ruins. That night we met up with another truck on tour to Rio and had a BBQ buffet by the pool. After a fun night socialising we set off for Asuncion and set off for food as soon as we checked into our seemingly posh hotel. At least the reception looked swanky, and breakfast this morning was pretty good, but the rooms are pretty standard. The only place open and with space on a Sunday evening was TGI Friday's- which was pretty standard fare, but what we all needed. Today's lie in was much needed and after a good breakfast, we set off to explore Asuncion, which as it turned out, doesn't take that long! The temperature hasn't dipped below 30 degrees C all day so we've spent the morning hiding in the shade looking at the colonial buildings and most of the afternoon in the AC. Tomorrow we finally move on to Brasil!!!!
