Please note: We are having beautiful weather.!!!!
Took bus #37 yesterday and it let us off within 2 blocks of Moviestar Central. Interestingly enough, in 2011 we paid a fee for a Sim Card......NOW IT IS FREE. But can anyone explain the psychology of an operation that does NOT allow you to purchase minutes right there, but makes you go to a kiosko to charge the phone??????? I didn't understand it then and don't understand it now.
To soothe our savage breasts, we galavanted in to VOLTA for their Dulce de Leche special: 1/4 kilo for 16 pesos,rather than 32. YUM.
Found a correo close to the ap't on Coronel Diaz and purchased a SUBE card without any hassle. Altho it is easy for us to get coins from the laundry lady downstairs, it is a pain....and the card relieves the hassle and IS less costly per trip.
Received a "hot tip" from our friend about Jumbo's 100% promotion this weekend and so we took a leisurely stroll over there this AM.......of course being vigilant about "black water spray". I was sure this promotion was buy one get one free like the US........but I was wrong. When we checked out, we received all these coupons that need to be used on specific dates for ANY item. I'm mpressed. The cab ride home with all of our stuff was a reasonable 21 pesos. SO.......the promotion is good thru the end of the day tomorrow. You may want to boogey over.
And now I have a new supermarket of choice. Disco downstairs is passable. The big Carrefour at Paseo Alcorta has been remodeled w/mostly dry goods and we don't like the feel. What used to be Carrefour Express on Scal Ortiz has also been remodeled and is a place to run in for a quick item or two. Jumbo has a great feel and is surprisingly "close".
Jet lag is wearing off and for the past 2 nights I've slept like a log. Do you think BA has melatonin in the air????????????
Wishes to all for a simply wonderful weekend.
