3 Food Stops: La Plata

You may think I may have nothing to post, but no. Sometimes I enjoy challenging myself and writing about topics that are not my usual. Today I´m talking about 3 food stops in La Plata, Argentina, especially now that has become a popular place due to the amount of concerts held there. I like this places and that´s I consider them worth the visit.

Boutique de Pizzas
Everybody loves pizza, but that´s not the only thing you can find here. We were consciously looking for a place to have lunch and we saw this place which reminded me of on of my (and friends) favourite at home. So we took a seat and ordered two "calzones" that ended up being delicious. I recommend it for a normal, but fun lunch while you are sightseeing as it is located near Plaza Moreno.
Where? Calle 10 & Av. 51

Located near the shops, on a nice area I would say, this place calls your attention. It has what we like to call: aesthetic. It´s modern but with the British vibe, I mean, take a look at the restrooms that imitates the London underground. What´s more, the food was fantastic! I had the best almond croissant ever! Highly recommendable for a quiet afternoon tea or an unconventional night out.
Where? Av. 51 esq. 5

Located near the previous one, it´s a great option for breakfast, a coffee stop, or a beer and something else. It has an appealing to the eye vintage decoration, and so does the food. For example, I´ve never seen a more beautiful presentation for a plain orange juice. It a cosy place on an excellent location.
Where? Calle 51 e/4y5 n°486

Winter Colors

Happy Monday! Yes, I said happy, because there is something good about finishing your Monday, now you only have 4 more days till the weekend! Well, that´s enough talk about the days of the week. Let´s move on the conversation to this outfit. At first sight it looks unconventional. I even think it´s unconventional, but sometimes it happens. I stated with the leggings, I saw them I thought they were original, but I had a hard time deciding what would look good with it. I guess that the reason is that we are not so used to wearing brown nowadays. I ended up deciding on a white t-shirt and sneakers. I felt it was a bit boring so I added the scarf. I am not very good with "adding scarfs", but I took the risk, and as it was a very simple outfit, the prints looked appropriate. Last, I saw the flannel and remembered I needed some kind of outerwear, and as everything I had by hand was either black or grey, I stayed with the flannel that casually looked good with the trousers. And that my dear friends is how I created this outfit, which by the way, is less though and more natural. 

I wish a nice week! Thank you for reading!

Paul McCartney + La Plata

We saw Paul McCartney!!! And that is what this post and video are about. But let´s start from the  begining. Around 2 weeks ago, I saw there were still tickets to the show, and I knew it was an incredible opportunity. The show was on the night of the 19th, so that mornign we hopped on a bus and the journey beggun. As soon as we arrived to La Plata, we grabbed something to eat and did a little bit of tourism. I wanted to see at least the main square and that was our next stop. Plaza Moreno is the center of the city, and to my mind, one of the most stunning squares I´ve ever seen. And on one of the sides we have the Cathedral, which also happens to be the most relevant landmark of the city. Afterwards we walked a bit around 8th street where you have a lot of shops and a fake pedestrian street. We also stopped for some food in a very cuty bar, Foodie, with a British decoration. Very appropiete for the occasion. We were staying in a hotel near the Goverment House, a tidy neightbourhood, but we had some bad luck taking into account there was a strike that day. Anyway, we went back to the hotel to get ready for the show. Around, after getting into several layers of clothes, we took a taxi to the Estadio Unico. When we got there, we still had a long time to our seats. The organization was terrible, poor, inexistant... We had to walk more than 20 blocks from side to side. But, I must admit it was worth it. So worth it. We fist listened to a DJ, but around 9:30 Paul came out! He was in such a good mood and made the effort to speak in Spanish and joke a bit. He sang about 40 songs and didn´t take a break whatsoever. Another thing I should praise is the variety of songs, some from the Beatles era, from his whole career and some of the newest ones. I would describe the show as fantastic, a 10 out of 10. It finished at 12, and I got that feeling that I did´t want it to finish. But Paul said goodbye and the crowd started to leave. Once out, it took us like 40 minutes to get a taxi, next time we will go on foot. The following morning, I woke up feeling sick, the kind of sickness you get when you are travelling and it´s really cold outside. But I still got up, had some breakfast and we went out for a walk in the neightbourhood and did some shopping. As I told you before, the area near the Goverment house has a shopping centre and several shops and nice bars. If you are visiting, I recommend getting a hotel there. Once again we did a food stop, this time at Bachicha, before hopping into a bus for the next 7 hours...
