El Jardin

We can't leave the city.

Today Alex and I took a nice walk across town to look for some new digs. Our San Telmo apartment is really nice, don't get me wrong, but the time's up.

Alex and I struck gold on our first outing with Casa Jardin in Palermo. This place had almost been crowned GTM home base from the get-go, as Alex had researched it from the States. Unfortunately for Casa Jardin, they didn't make the cut for required antique shops nearby. The minimum was 25, so San Telmo it was.

Okay, there's no antique shop requirement as of yet, but if there's anything on my mind it's a Wi-Fi connection. Sharing one cord between heaps of research, emails, and online communities can drive anyone into eating dulce-de-leche.

Wi-Fi? Check.

How about a renting a ten-person room for three people? Check.

And a rooftop patio? Yup.

Finding Casa Jardin definitely made up for the 8 peso "milk shake" we had for lunch. The milk shakes here must be called "shakes" because they mix water with chocolate milk, and shake.
