So on this crisp Monday morning we decide it's time to break out the Sube and experience the local bus system for a trip to Llao Llao. We walk down the hill from the apartment to the spot Maria Elana pointed out as the bus stop, which is at Km 1. We are going to Km 25.5. We wait 15 minutes for a #20 and board a standing room only bus. The driver asks where we're going and points me to put my Sube proximity card on the reader. It costs 30.10 peso's ($1.51 USD) for each of us. More people join the bus along the way and a few get off. Around Km 12 a woman near me gets off and I am able to grab her seat. William stands until Km 16. After riding the oftentimes crowded busses in Malta I can say that the Argentines certainly shower more frequently than the Maltese. :-)
The return bus initiates at Llao Llao Resort so we are able to get seats on the trip. The bus has ~ 60 seats and they are all filled within the first 5 kilometers. As we drive along another 45-50 people cram into the aisle and the steps. Eventually the driver bypasses people waiting for the bus, there's just no more room. Hopefully the next bus in 15 minutes will have room for them . Getting out of the bus at our stop is a little challenging, but we eventually make our way through the crowd and pop out of the bus. The bus ride wasn't optimum, but I'm willing to try our Sube card for another adventure later this week.
