Fourteen million people live in and around Buenos Aires, it’s a HUGE metropolitan city. This street reflects that, with thousands of people milling through from one end to the other.

My dad and I stopped at the famous Richmond Cafe (Florida 460), a beautiful 1920’s era restaurant all done in wood paneling, for lunch. At 3pm. You have to admire the love these people have for eating late, and not doing ‘fast food.’ I had an absolutely yummy lomo (Filet Mignon) sandwich, and my dad had a chicken/veggie crepe. Finish it all off with some of the best sparkling mineral water and a good beer.
