Funny dinner last night with marthas friends hugh, hughie and rupert. Having met them for drinks and assued them we knew a cheap local neaby for supper... we headed off into the microcentro. Half an hour later we were coerced into a crappy looking restaurant by a) the women offering us and discount and b) the boys saw a MASSIVE show plate of lamb and that was it.
Martha and i ordered safely, milanesa (veal in breadcrumbs) whilst the boys opted for the meat dish. Our milanesas arrived without a hickup, whilst the boys meal arrived a few seconds later. It was, looked and tasted DISGUSTING. As one boy said "oh wait i found the meat, no,,,, its the end". They actually ordered roadkill. Ruperts facial expressions had us, martha in particualr in HISTERICS. Moral of the story, dont order meat in a cheap restaurant.
Decided to heah up to la boca,,, only to jump of the colectivo when we saw street lined with market stalls along the way. Really cool with gypsies in funny trousers selling their wares. One of them let me hold his dog, then yelled at me when i went to put it down. Turns out he was joking... aparently. Want to get my hair braided next time!
