Where I stayed

Flag of Argentina  , Central Argentina,

Cordoba is the 2nd largest city in Argentina next to Buenos Aires at 1.5 million people. My
first thought of the city was it wasn't that impressive, but after some time, I got to explore it a little bit more and enjoyed its hidden treasures. My first day, I walked around the shopping
centers, which are weaved together indoor and outdoor pedestrian alleys. It really is pretty interesting because I just got to find all these hidden places. They have several squares full of
interesting European style buildings. There is a river here that is not full of water or nice, but has some history in that the Jesuit's built it 400 years ago. Well they didn't build the river, but they
built the blocks and bridges that form where the river runs and give it character. My second day, I watched a few movies movies and had a few good meals and the last day I went down towards the bus terminal and to the biggest park in Cordoba, then walked home along the river.
The park is deceiving when looking at it on a map. It looks like it has trails that you can walk around, but really they are roads for cars, so it's not the peaceful park you would think it to be. I had a chance to go out at night my 2nd night here. I went to a bar that didn't even turn into a club until 1 AM. It closes at 10 AM. These clubs go all night here. I only made it until 3 AM. It
wasn't a wild club, but it was fun. It was called Maria Maria and probably fit 150 people.It was the first time I partied on this trip.  One of the strange things about this night was that they drink an alcoholic beverage that is pretty much like cough syrup.  It's real popular here and doesn't taste so well.
