Everywhere we go there seems to be children and/or pregnant women. I haven't verified the statistics, but William is certain that the population of Argentina is growing.
On Thursday we walk the few blocks to Parque San Martín and the Natural History Museum that lies within it. It's a small museum with a few interesting displays. Friday as we walk along a street for the first time we happen across a store which sells tobacco products, liquor, wine and beer. We stop in and William picks up a couple of Cuban cigars. He enjoys one along with a cerveza at an outdoor cafe that evening.
And in-between all of this we enjoy some great meals. William is not yet tired of Argentine ribeyes as he orders one three to four times a week and occasionally has leftovers for lunch the next day. I have meals of trout, salmon, pork ribs and skirt steak that are all very good. A generous pour of copa de vino is usually $75 - $80 peso's ($3.75 - $4.00 USD), and the wine is quite good - after all this is Mendoza! From a price perspective the sweet spot on restaurant wine lists is $250 - $400 peso's ($12.50 - $20.00 USD) with half or more of the bottles in that range. Of course you can also spend $1,500+ peso's if you want to at some restaurants. It's hard for a wine-lover not to imbibe.
