Stories from my 14-month study abroad in Buenos Aires, my 16-month post-college move to Miami, and my get-me-the-hell-out-of-Miami move to Denver

Time Differences

(our internet was down so I couldn't post this when I wrote it. Forgive me)

It's 10:07 and I'm just getting ready for what will most likely be a pretty fun night out. I have absolutely no plans, and that's how it is. It's still relatively early right now. Actually, for a saturday night, it's REALLY early. Last night at about 12:30 I went to a friends house to do some pre-gaming. Chris Mike and I were drinking mixers in his house and we realized that it's about 1:30 and we really needed to start making our way to the bars. We concluded that in the states, if you aren't at the bar/drinking at a party by midnight, everyone gets all pissy and angry. Here, 1:30AM is about the equivalent to 9:30PM in the states. Restaurants are packed with people at midnight trying to get some dinner, and fashionably late means 2:30.

Seeing as I'm posting this after the night I wrote it, I did end up having a fun night. Went with some friends to a little bar until around 1:30, then went to Plaza Serrano(nightlife dining hub of Palermo) until about 5. When we left, this entire restaurant plaza was still packed with people hanging out.
