  • Rivadavia this will be our first impressions along  with some great food so let's go check it out  

  • let's get to it we kicked off our first morning in  Comodoro Rivadavia with a walk down to the beach  

  • this was our first time back on the coast so we  had to get a glimpse of the atlantic we walked  

  • through a local park saw some kids skateboarding  people working out and we also came across a  

  • group of dogs enthusiastically running alongside  lifeguards in training that alone made our morning

  • for lunch we went to a restaurant called cado  coco del mar and of course we had to order seafood  

  • so the cocktails are here and we both went  for pisco sours oh it's shifting already  

  • i got one with grape juice and sam got the  classic with lime juice yep it's been ages  

  • since i've had one of these maybe the last time  we were in peru a year and a half ago we were  

  • looking at wine and we're like yeah maybe we  could get a wine but then we saw that they had  

  • piscos and we're like oh my gosh we gotta get  a pisco especially for our our peruvian viewers  

  • oh yes as we were just talking about the  food look what arrived an amazing looking  

  • platter you've got a delicious looking soup  so mine looks good but as always like sam  

  • sam is just good at this at this whole ordering  business yeah it's gonna be a feast i want me to  

  • try some of them we can share share both of them  i ordered the seafood casserole and it is divine

  • made for the sea gods made from the sea gods just  for you yes what do you got in there beautiful  

  • presentation let me tell you with these jumbo  shrimp hanging out here yeah there's lots of um  

  • calamari fish more shrimp these little  guys i always forget the name of them

  • scallops and they're so tender not scallops  not oysters the other ones what are they called  

  • little black shells mussels muscles it  has muscles it is delicious not spicy  

  • but just really savory and jam-packed with  flavor oh we haven't had seafood in so long  

  • it's just so exciting to be eating it and the  sun's coming back out again guys look at this  

  • we're gonna have a nice little beach walk after

  • oh man this is on here this is a feast and we have  really nice drinks to go with it this is just a  

  • great introduction to being back along  the patagonian coast sam is a happy boy  

  • indeed this is a buffet on a plate this is  an incredible platter i love i love how it's  

  • both uh hot and cold items i think that's so cool  normally when you get a combination platter like  

  • this it's one or the other in fact it's often  usually you get like fried or you get fresh  

  • and this is this is everything best of both  worlds of both worlds so before i even start  

  • let's get some lemon going oh look at that  guys oh that is a juicy piece of lemon i  

  • squirted lemon across the restaurant earlier yeah  and i did again too let's try these one by one  

  • so we'll start off with the calamari  calamari is delish let me tell you  

  • wow beautifully fried too not not too much  batter with too much salt can you try that  

  • cheesy thing over there because i've  been eyeing that we got fake shrimp guys

  • at the start of the show yes big shrimp andcream sauce with parmesan cheese melted on top  

  • oh yeah look at this we've got more  shrimp here on the skewer with bacon  

  • that's the one delicious feast guys dessert  was a tasting platter featuring seven desserts  

  • each one more delightful than the first we were  almost bordering on gluttony here but who can  

  • say no to trying a little bit of everything is the  favorite amongst them all might be the chocolate  

  • mousse to be honest oh it's really really i'm  gonna put the camera down and start getting after

  • something

  • oh my gosh what a marvelous meal that was indeed  i feel spoiled here i wasn't expecting it to be  

  • that good truth be told oh my gosh that was  amazing um and in terms of price point that  

  • came to just over 3 000 pesos 3070 to be exact 51  us dollars that was a splurge alert meal for sure  

  • but worth it worth every penny every pesoshould say i'd go back there again i go back  

  • there tomorrow and the day after but we will try  a different place it was amazing and what's really  

  • changed is when we first walked here we were  looking out at the water and marveling at how it  

  • looked like we were in cuba or something beautiful  clear turquoise waters turquoise waters that  

  • yeah the weather the weather has changed as as had  been predicted i remember looking at the forecast  

  • this morning be like there's no way there's  going to be any clouds or thunderstorms today  

  • and well the clouds did come and so now it's a  little grayer but that also means that there's  

  • not as many people on the beach and yeah  we're just gonna have a little walk down here  

  • before we head back into town oh and you know  what was really cool what seeing the lifeguards  

  • training and the stray dogs joining them oh that  was amazing i got such a good shot from high above  

  • and then one of the lifeguards came up to us  and wanted to see the clips afterwards really  

  • nice guy he's training and hopefully he's going  to get a full-time job sometime in the new year

  • that afternoon we enjoyed a stroll along the  boardwalk we noticed there was a storm brewing  

  • and that the skies were getting quitebit darker by the minute so we decided  

  • to pick an attraction close to our hotel and  ended up visiting the museo ferro portuario  

  • which is a museum that focuses on the link  between the port and the railway in this oil town

  • socks and sandals sam he's coming along down hold  on down i got a blisters the last time i went  

  • barefoot with these sandals so i'm going fashion  i'm being fashion forward here fashion full one  

  • socks and sandals better believe it what have you  found this is the most interesting exhibit so far  

  • at least for me these are different lighthouses of  patagonia argentina if you look at the poster over  

  • here it says exactly that the la patagonia  lighthouses and they have replica models  

  • and they also have information of where they are  located so if you were if you wanted to make an  

  • interesting challenge for yourself you could come  to patagonia argentina and try to visit um maybe  

  • not all of them but most of them or all of them  rent a car and visit oh there you go there's a  

  • there's a challenge for you also these are squeaky  floors hey oh and i'm noticing out the window here  

  • there's a coca-cola a faded coca-cola sign on lead  us there lead us to the coke bottle we are thirsty  

  • people thirsty folks ah i see it i think we're  gonna need the zoom lens for this but it's on

  • that evening we chose a restaurant  near our hotel which worked out  

  • well for sam because there were pizzas on the menu  

  • also as a little behind the scenes this was  the day i learned i was going to be an aunt  

  • and now we have our little nephew sebastian in  our lives so it was a bit of a celebratory dinner  

  • we had lunch today at cano coco del mar now we're  having lunch now having dinner at cadio coco and  

  • both restaurants are owned by the same person  that's why it's got a similar name yeah different  

  • menus though different menus the other one was  all seafood this one is more traditional dishes  

  • but i wanted a salad it's something lighter  so i got a shrimp avocado uh palm heart salad

  • and that looks divine and tastes even better guys  i've been talking into my delicious shrimp pizza  

  • a regional delicacy of this area basically if you  want to have an authentic original pizza from here  

  • you got to get something with seafood  oh they make really good pizzas here  

  • i've already been talking in a little bit copious  amounts of cheese big shrimp totally delicious  

  • and to go with this i got a little bottle  of red wine from mendoza sheriff cheers  

  • cheers to the delicious food here it's like  great luck with the food so far in the city  

  • hello hey guys we're back oh my gosh a little  bit wet a little bit soaked more food i can't  

  • believe we had more food it was scissors it  was this this time you can believe me often  

  • it's you but this time it's me so overall a great  day though huh it was an excellent introduction  

  • to Comodoro Rivadavia i've gotta say way better  than i imagined i feel like everyone paints such  

  • a negative picture about this oil town that i was  just like oh my gosh what have we gotten ourselves  

  • yeah yeah like the first thing i guess that really  surprised me was just the the beach areas there's  

  • some great boardwalks and there's some beaches  to walk on so we're going to take advantage of  

  • that i think we'll be starting our mornings off  doing that um also the town is very developed  

  • as you noticed when we were coming in for  sure you could tell that this town has money  

  • there's a really nice hotels there's really nice  condos lots of restaurants casinos casinos there's  

  • lots of banks in our area we you chose a really  good place for us to stay like we're right in the  

  • center of it all right we're just a couple blocks  away from from the coastline and we're nearby  

  • restaurants and other areas the city is very  walkable and we should also talk a little bit the  

  • history of this place it was really interesting  reading about here because originally this  

  • town was founded as a gateway to what is nowsmaller community i believe it's called sarmiento  

  • so originally sarmiento was a city that's more  inland yeah and they developed this town as to be  

  • a coastal town for there yeah so that sarmiento  would have access to a port and be able to you  

  • know export and ship out their whatever they  produce so they started drilling for water here  

  • they were trying to make a well find some  water to drink and instead they struck gold  

  • oil oil oil more like it oil more like it and so  obviously this uh this place has developed to the  

  • point of being the second biggest city in all of  patagonia argentina which is quite impressive only  

  • nail ken is larger yeah and so yeah it's and  that includes have i mentioned that includes  

  • chilean patagonia as well not just argentine  patagonia right right and uh yeah i believe  

  • there's there's two million people in patagonia  in total if i remember correctly that part i don't  

  • yeah but this is the second biggest city in all  of patagonia argentina and so far we've enjoyed it  

  • also a benefit for us is that the the internet's  been great here yes yeah you know what not  

  • just in the hotel like we have unlimited up  unlimited speeds when it comes to uploads yeah  

  • and then we were walking in the center of town  past this other cafe and we saw a whole bunch  

  • of businessmen on their laptops yeah so it looks  like it's a good place to get work done which is  

  • good news for us i have more first impressions to  share oh what's that it's very windy here so today  

  • we were walking down the street i feel like my  hat's about to blow off every minute yeah but  

  • also you get these wind tunnels forming and then  you get like these little dust whirlwinds and like  

  • they look like mini tornadoes like you're  walking down the sidewalk and like you see  

  • these little mini tornadoes forming yeah  and then like these gusts of wind just like  

  • blow dirt in your face and you're like oh i can't  see and you're walking down the sidewalk yeah  

  • it's it's windy in patagonia it's no joke yeah  it's windy in patagonia and then it's doubly  

  • windy being by the coast so oh the other thing  i noticed too is that it is more expensive here  

  • both in grocery stores and at restaurants  we had one of our more expensive  

  • restaurant meals of the whole trip also one of our  best ones by the way but just going and shopping  

  • for groceries like i've kind of i've got this idea  of what what things cost now having doing been  

  • shopping for a while in argentina in various  regions and it is the most expensive so far  

  • but uh overall we like it here and  we're happy we've got a couple more days  

  • we're gonna get some work done we're gonna eat  well and we're gonna show you a bit more of  

  • what you can do here so stay tuned for that all  right thanks for watching guys see you next time
