RosarioFebruary 6 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C
On our way to Paraguay for another carnival, we decided to stop off at a city called Rosario. Turns out it is a craft beer mecca with crazily cheap prices. Less than £2 a pint during happy hour (which goes on to 9pm!), it would be rude not to indulge.
So we embarked on a pub crawl, some beers were better than others but the real disappointment was where we decided to eat. We were seduced by the cheap 'burger and beer' but we should have taken heed from the fact no-one else was there. The beer was decent but the burger was terrible. Probably the worse meal we've had on the trip.
So we moved onto the next bar to shake off the disappointment. There we got chatting to some young guys who kindly let us sit at their table. Their English was better than our Spanish but it wasn't exactly easy to chat. So Kat defaulted to her topic of choice, football, and especially a love for our Argentine manager Pochettino.
The town is on the Paraná river and we had a delightful walk along it. Our plans were to reach the beaches but it was far too hot, so we settled for the closer docks area instead. It reminded me of parts of Docklands in London and had been similarly renovated with fancy apartments and river facing bars.
Given that I had a haircut last week, Kat was feeling left out so went for one of her own. I wandered around the shops for a bit but returned to meet her and she was still in the chair chatting away. Guess what about, Pochettino of course.Read more
