Curious Cordoba

sunny

Argentina’s 2nd largest city with a population of 1,531,500 arriving at the early hours of the morning we began looking for a hostel (which something you should pre-book in advance lol) we must have looked around for an hour or so. We finally found ‘Palenque Hostel’ unpacked, slept, showered and then we were off to check out the city. The breakfast here is just full of sugar, you would get a coffee, a very small glass of orange juice, a very small glass of sparkling water, several pastries that are full of Dulce de Leche (this amazing spread which is very tasty but not so good on your figure lol) and with your margarine and jam. Once we were all sugared up my first impression of the city were negative as everything was big and people were rushing, rushing here and there reminded me of London and as I became accustomed of little villages, smaller towns and boom I’m back to city life. After a few days I started to settle down and saw different sides to Cordoba. The new town was so beautiful; loads of nice cobbled streets with amazing restaurants, people were very nice and always greeted us. The food here became a lot better, choicer and not everything was fried lol. We spent our time in Cordoba just walking everywhere and anywhere, sitting down and just people watching. I loved it! By the end of our stay here I started to love the city and was very surprised – never judge anything by your 1st impressions!
