Going out

When we were not married, Rosario and I lived very far from each other which meant that when we met, we stuck together for 24, or 36 hours. Our 3rd date lasted almost 3 days.

A few days ago, we decided to have one of those, even though we were with Tato for a part of it.

So, we went from home to the Museo Participativo de Ciencias, in Recoleta, a cool kids science museum, full of cool stuff.

First we went to Buenos Aires Design, place full of cool and very overpriced designer stuff. Bought two pens.

Since Georgina, a friend of ours who lives *very* far away from us works at the Centro Cultural Recoleta, we decided to kidnap her for a cup of coffee

In the meantime, Tato acquired two balloons and started making inappropiate things with them:

But that was just a moment. Then... I'm an elephant!!!!

IMAG0369

We entered the Centro Cultural Recoleta, which is a very cool place...

IMAG0370

Tato and us performed a bunch of experiments. He even got to play with a Vandergraaf generator!!!!

IMAG0373

Then we wandered the scary areas...

IMAG0374

When we got out, it was getting dark...

IMAG0375

And Tato discovered the sad truth about candied apples: they are crap...

IMAG0377

We left tato with his aunties Laura and Agustina and started the grownup part of the date. First, we saw Anonymous protesting scientology (and a trollface!)...

IMAG0378

We had a picada at a place called Babieca. Great mortadela! I saw an example of rampant capitalism...

IMAG0380

Then our bank heist was foiled by a teller not giving us the "small denomination, unmarked, not-sequential" bills we wanted...

IMAG0381

Turns out Rosario had never been to the Ateneo Grand Splendid, the prettiest bookstore I have ever seen. So we went there to see some books and get a soda or something...

IMAG0384

The roof is pretty special...

IMAG0383

This is a restored teather, and the bar is in the stage...

IMAG0389

And you can see the ancient lights board (luckily: disabled)...

IMAG0386

So, we walked on Corrientes avenue and saw this (and yes, you can fake 7 seconds of tango by following the steps, but it's very hard for the lady)...

IMAG0391

Then there was a guy, walking in an elephant's trunk thong, while his friends (who had shorn him and covered him in flour) whistled and shouted: a "despedida de soltero", ritual hazing for a guy getting married...

IMAG0392

He ended talking with a 7-foot-tall transvestite in red sequins. The transvestite shouting "you are a healthy boy!"...

IMAG0393

So, after a nice evening at a borrowed appartment, next morning we got Tato back!

IMAG0394

A hobbitsian 3-hour breakfast ensued...

IMAG0395 IMAG0396 IMAG0397

Then taxi, train home, and we got back almost exactly 26 hours after we left. Everyone had fun, and thanks to Agustina and Laura (or Laura and Agustina), because without the mellis, this would have been impossible.
