Our last apartment was lovely but out on the edge of the city. We were both excited to see our new place which is located only a ten minute walk from downtown. And so far, we love it! It has a big open kitchen, which is almost unheard of in Argentina, a lovely living/dining room with a big storage unit, a big bedroom with a large closet, a nice updated bathroom with separate vanity area, a washing machine and a nice sunny balcony. This place actually is much nicer than the photos. We've unpacked all of our stuff and still have several empty cupboards. Plus, this place comes with a weekly cleaning service.

Best of all, it's in a lovely neighbourhood with parks and shops and only a short walk to lots of really good restaurants. On Sunday night, we went for a stroll downtown to Alcorta for dinner and happened upon a band playing old disco hits outside Paseo. At first I thought it was a school band but then John pointed out several elderly gents in the front row. Some sort of community band, I guess, playing YMCA in downtown Cordoba. Then on our way home there was a couple dancing the tango for an appreciative audience in the downtown square. Only in Argentina!
