The afternoon was a lazy one with the kids...we headed on the subway to Palermo and wandered around the shops, had a quick beer in a square then wandered a bit more
As it was our last night in BA with the kids we decided to head back to Palermo to an expensive but highly recommended steak restaurant. We also picked up ester to come with us as she had no plans for the evening. Sara had 'google mapped' the route to the restaurant and marked it on her paper map and off we went! On getting off the subway we oriented ourselves and set off for dinner...after about a 20minute walk we were to switch to Sara's iPhone map to find the restaurant...at this point it became clear that her phone had been stolen on the subway!!! It really is incredible how stealthily this was done and made us all a bit more cautious of our belongings!!
With sara's map gone we reverted to my trip advisor app which pointed out that we had been going in the wrong direction for the whole time! This was not a happy discovery! After 2 hours of walking we finally reached our final destination to find as expected that it was fully booked but we could join the queue of 7 groups waiting for tables if we wanted! We decided to head back to the steak place we went to with penny (but not before Sara and I booked a table for our alternate new year on 30th December!). Dinner was delicious and we had our first good malbec for the bargain price of 68pesos!!
We headed back to the lunchtime square for drinks afterwards and ended up having a lovely night all capped off with 5 of us sharing a taxi which was really quite a squash but economically much better than paying for 2!!
