  • samuel jeffrey that was my mentality back then  and those are the kinds of funds i had available  

  • for travel off back then well today we are  taking the ferry and we paid for business class

  • salad guys it's like for a family for an  army for an arm for a small army you know  

  • argentinian beef is really really good but  euro-wide it doesn't stay behind okay they  

  • are like uh on par you know excellent excellent  excellent excellent this is one of the top uh  

  • top-rated steakhouses here in colonia yeah  we researched this place it's got like a  

  • kind of a family atmosphere friendly staff  they brought our food quickly too very quick  

  • yeah yeah time for me to try it you guys have been  raving about this so i have very high expectations

  • oh yeah what do you think julia mean is  fantastic and they cooked it to perfection  

  • really really tender i think the basil  is the best cut though no i just have to  

  • mention this salad has a bit of everything onions  tomatoes lettuce carrots beetroot rice potatoes  

  • it's so good what are we doing this  is awesome what's wrong with us  

  • what's wrong with you he's a guilty part he's the  one that insisted we couldn't take any more but  

  • ice cream with brownies and dulce  de leche look at that guys dig in

  • amazing very good very good huh but we're  we're stuck that's 3 000 calories right there  

  • right there samwell it's up to you now well guys  it is the end of the day we're back in the little  

  • apartment after a huge feast of a meal wow the  dishes here are way bigger than we were expecting  

  • the portions like everything is sharing size yeah  when you order a main dish it's for two people  

  • it's for two people that's right i mean uh  the appetite of the people in this part of  

  • the world and the the amount that they can  consume there was a table right next to us  

  • those six or seven guys they were eating like  i mean full full portions individually each one  

  • and on top of that a liter of beer yeah another  thing to notice in this little town of uh colonia  

  • is that when you're gonna cross the streets  even the avenues that don't have traffic lights  

  • the cars when they see somebody going on the  street will stop automatically okay and they will  

  • give you the right of way but in some of these  other latin american countries you cannot just  

  • hop into the to the street and try to cross if the  traffic is moving you will get run over they'll  

  • run you all for you pedestrian it seems like the  drivers they have a sight on top of the steering  

  • wheel for pedestrians you know they put you on  the site and they aim and they try to get you  

  • you know because there's something else you know  like i mean you don't know how to jump but here  

  • we were amazingly surprised very encouraging very  good another surprise today that i'll mention is  

  • when we went to the restaurant and it was time to  pay i paid with a foreign card a foreign visa card  

  • and they discount the tax automatically like  as a foreigner you don't pay tax the sales  

  • tax yeah here is called the eva yeah and it'll  show it on the receipt yeah it removes the text  

  • it's a nice little town no it's a colonial charm  yeah very charming tomorrow we'll properly explore  

  • yes there's like lightning and thunder happening  outside hopefully that holds off and we get  

  • clear weather but if not umbrella anyways first  impressions are very positive here yeah and uh
