Top Things I Did in Argentina —
I promised my grandmother before I left on my trip I would journal about my travels because she and my grandfather kept a journal from their travels and told me how much they reflected on it. When I read their journal, I was intrigued by all the foreign places and different types of people of people they met along the way. I wonder how different they are today. Just before I left for my trip she and my grandfathers sadly passed. So this blog post is dedicated to them.
Córdoba was interesting but I would never go back because I really did not like the food there or the vibe. Argentinian Loyd Christmas’s Face says it all on how I felt by staying in Córdoba, Argentina.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires was a much different Córdoba. The city was much larger and the food is much better. It was the first place I actually had asado and was very impressed.
Asado (Spanish: [aˈsaðo] is used in the same way as the English word “barbecue”, both for a range of barbecue techniques and the social event of having or attending a barbecue in Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay, where it is very popular. In these countries, asado is a traditional way of preparing food and a traditional event. An asado usually consists of beef, sausages, and sometimes other meats, which are cooked on a grill, called a parrilla, or an open fire.
