Does travel make you more creative? More compassionate?Yes, if you travel with those intentions.
Instead, we went to a modern shopping center called the Alto Palermo. I didn't buy much, but did find this CD called Memphis La Blusera, which the cab driver from the night before was playing. I liked it and asked about it.
We returned to La Manger, the tapas place we had found on the first day. Later, on our walk back to our apartment, we found this place, Simplemente Palermo. The waiter there was raised in Orlando Florida, was Columbian, and spoke perfect English. We weren't that hungry, but really had to use the bano. So we just had this snack of empanadas, with some wine, of course.
I have traveled quite a bit, and am using this page to record some memories. Travel is a wonderful education, expanding your view of the world, of other cultures, of the beauty of diversity.
