Location: Argentina

MapPeople Come Out at Night

I think that I have just about acclimatised to the Argentinian way of life, its very relaxed and involves an awful lot of sitting about. The hardest thing to get used to is having tea (that's dinner for all you southerners) at 9 o clock! and that's just when you're at home, if you go out to eat it can be anywhere between 9 and 1am. I kid you not, the other night when we where having drinks in one of the many bar/restaurant thingies, a family arrived at 12am, kids in toe for tea!

One thing that I do love about Argentina is the importance placed on the family. It's quite normal to live with your folks till you get married (which I'm not too sure about?!), but they all spend a lot of time together, mainly eating, which suits me down to the ground!
