After we got back from Uruguay we were hungry so we decided to visit one of Joel’s favorite restaurants, Hard Rock Cafe. It was a much longer walk than it looked like on the map but we finally made it.
This building looks rather epic but, it’s actually a giant mall that only has stores that have to do with home design. The Hard Rock is also in this building.
Here we are.
Joel loves his bacon cheese burgers.
I, on the other hand, enjoy the entire cow.
For dessert we walked a bit further and found a rather famous ice cream shop that had some of the best ice cream ever.
It was probably the best ice cream I’ve ever eaten. I choose the banana split flavor. Imagine for a minute: Creamy chocolate and vanilla ice cream with just a hint of banana marbled with thick ribbons of rich caramel then drizzled with chocolaty fudge and sprinkled with dark chocolate shavings all in a sweet waffle cone. Hungry yet?
Plus they deliver! As much as I’d love to have some in my neighborhood it’s probably better that it’s not. At least for my waistline, that is.
After our delicious dessert we walked back to the hotel and got some much needed sleep on our last night in Argentina.
The next morning we took our time getting up and enjoyed one last breakfast at the hotel. Since our flight didn’t leave until late in the evening, we had time to walk up the Caminito. The Caminito is a little neighborhood (basically one little street, really) that all the houses are painted bright, primary colors. This was definitely one of my favorite places in the city, even though it was quite a distance from pretty much everything else.
A fun little mural welcoming us into the neighborhood of the Caminito, La Boca.
Here it is, the street known as the Caminito.
Many of the cafes have tango dancers out front to draw the tourists in to eat.
What an amazing trip this was. We were able to see and do so much. Plus, we had so much quality time together to bond and reconnect. Living apart because of my job can be really hard sometimes but trips like this are why we’re doing it for now. I can’t wait to see where we end up next!
