  • our second day in comodoro rivadavia  chubut argentina didn't quite go to plan  

  • we woke up to torrential rains that pretty  much lasted the whole day this was just a  

  • day of misadventure in which really nothing  went according to plan i mean we still went  

  • out there to explore a bit unaware of the fact  that the weather had shut down most of the city  

  • but basically everywhere we went  was closed so let's fast forward to  

  • the next day when we tried it all over  again this time with a bit of sunshine  

  • good morning world good morning guys greetings  again from comodoro rivadavia patagonia and it is  

  • a sunny day so i am feeling very happy what what  a difference a day makes it felt like armageddon  

  • yesterday and now is gorgeous outside sunshine  the warmth has come back look at look at how we're  

  • dressed t-shirts and shorts at least for me you've  got a t-shirt jeans so we're gonna have a second  

  • attempt on visiting the petroleum museum todayactually i phoned them this morning are you open  

  • they said yes we're gonna take a cab out there  the more i think about it it's understandable  

  • that it's closed yesterday like it was really  the weather was quite severe like there was a  

  • bit of flooding there was severe winds and rains  like a lot of things were shut down i just think  

  • it's funny that we didn't realize the weather  was bad enough that maybe sightseeing wouldn't  

  • be a good idea we're like walking around comodoro  rivadavia cameras we were committed to the cause  

  • of making a video um we're also going to head  back to our favorite restaurants where we had  

  • seafood on the first date the place is phenomenal  yeah and they specialize in paella for two people  

  • yes you can also get a single portion  but of course we'll get enough yeah  

  • so that's the plan that's gonna be lunch and  also we've got the lookout point to visit so  

  • uh yeah basically everything that we were kind  of hoping to do yesterday we'll get to do today  

  • and we've got a great lunch and i think we'll  also make some time to visit a famous um ice  

  • cream shop it's called chocolate i believe yes  it is we'll have a little bit of ice cream so um  

  • yeah a really fun day planned and gorgeous weather  it's very inviting let's just go outside and enjoy

  • this what's this all about and this  is a really interesting monument it's  

  • right nearby the beach by the boardwalk  this is a monument tango you can't have  

  • tango music without that little accordion  indeed key instrument right right here

  • also what a huge difference it makes here  between low tide and high tide because on  

  • our first day we arrived at high tide and the  waves were just like crashing into the beach  

  • into the walls that are kind of  like protecting the coastline  

  • it was insane like we cannot believe the  size of the waves just like smashing and  

  • like jumping up in the air it was crazy um  and now by comparison it looks so calm like  

  • just little rolling waves not even big enough to  surf on or anything it just looks inviting almost  

  • that day we had lunch at cadoco del mar yes  again when we like something we're the kind  

  • of people to go back for more and that's  exactly how we felt about this restaurant  

  • this time around we tried some different  seafood dishes that had piqued our interest  

  • i got vaidam we were here a few days ago and i had  their seafood casuela which is kind of like a soup  

  • seafood stew yeah and we  noticed they had on their menu  

  • so we were like we need to come back for  this and today was the day today is that day

  • it's delightful it's definitely a different twist  on fire like in spain it would be drier here it's  

  • more soupy but it is very good and we have mussels  we have shrimp there's um calamari a bit of  

  • everything put everything in there huh and over  here the seafood good times keep on rolling so  

  • over here we've got pan-fried shrimp andtomato-based sauce with garlic oh my goodness  

  • look at all the shrimp delicious plum shrimp  that's very very good i'm calling the sharing  

  • rule into effect because this looks delightful and  you have roasted potatoes yeah time to try those  

  • those are really good i'm gonna throw a little  bit of salt on there and they'll be even better

  • that afternoon we began the walk over to the  national petroleum museum which is about three  

  • kilometers from the center of town in comodoro  rivadavia argentina since it was sunny we were  

  • in the mood for a long stroll but just  as a heads up you are basically walking  

  • on the side of a highway so if you visit you  might be better off taking a taxi our plan had  

  • been to stop halfway at a park overlooking the  ocean but that was close for renovation sadly

  • it was a long walk but we eventually arrived  at the national petroleum museum where we  

  • had a guided tour we got to see where they  first struck oil and learn how this event  

  • gave birth to the city but  more on that a bit later

  • this museum has an indoor and outdoor component  so after touring the exterior and viewing some of  

  • the machinery we went indoors to take part  in a simulation where you can experience  

  • what it would be like to travel  to the depths of an oil well  

  • and while it kind of felt a bit like an  earthquake technically this activity is  

  • geared more for kids and school groups  but that didn't stop us from trying it

  • over

  • well guys i have just learned something new  petroleum does not come in black alone it can be  

  • all sorts of different colors as you can see here  it says that it really all varies on the chemical  

  • composition viscosity and density so some rather  pretty tones which is kind of surprising i thought  

  • this was basically it so that's kind of cool still  learning fascinating stuff about petroleum here  

  • um i'll translate this for you guys but  it's basically saying that 5 000 years  

  • ago the egyptians were already using petroleum  to embalm their mummies what then 4 000 years  

  • ago it was being used in construction to like  stick bricks together kind of like the glue  

  • then 900 years ago during the middle ages  it was you it was being used as a medicinal  

  • product probably not a good idea guys  and then just a few decades ago they  

  • were just extracting the kerosene from the  petroleum use it in lamps to eliminate rooms  

  • during our visit we also learned that every  year comodoro rivadavia patagonia crowns the  

  • national petroleum queen so they had some  photos from the early days of that pageant

  • all right guys so we are visiting the national  petroleum museum and today has been quite  

  • eye-opening because it turns out the history we  thought we knew of the city isn't maybe quite as  

  • accurate as we thought it was so basically we had  read that they were looking for water when they  

  • found oil that they were drilling to you know  make a well and boom there's oil but apparently  

  • that is not so that was just a cover-up because as  soon as we got to the museum we were visiting the  

  • the site with the second perforation hole it's  right here in front of the museum and they have  

  • two telegrams with a little bit of history  the first telegram was sent when they first  

  • discovered oil and the telegram was sent bygerman expert in petroleum and then another man  

  • who was also working alongside him and it said we  have drilled over 500 meters and we finally struck  

  • oil here are the details they were getting  in touch with the president of argentina  

  • and our guide here at the museum was telling us  if they had been looking for water they would  

  • have been drilling like 50 to 100 meters max they  wouldn't have been going down 500 meters because  

  • you can find water a lot sooner than that so  that's super fishy yeah and then the second  

  • clue we have is the second telegram that  was sent in response to the first telegram  

  • and it was basically the president of the nation  saying like okay within five leagues of where  

  • this oil has been found no one is allowed to come  here and make any claims on natural resources and  

  • blah blah blah so they are basically trying to  keep everyone away we have found oil it is ours  

  • and the guide was telling us that this whole  water story was just a bit of a cover-up  

  • get people talking like oh they're drilling  for water but really it was all oil um so  

  • that was yeah that's so fascinating that um  the origin story of this of this city is uh  

  • is incorrect it's especially in our travel  guide book yes the wrong information yeah  

  • that afternoon we went to chocolates  which is an ice cream and chocolate shop  

  • here we happen to meet a family that  watches our videos so we sat down for a chat  

  • and then we sampled some of the  delicious artisanal ice cream flavors

  • ice cream ice cream time in argentina probably  probably our favorite country for ice cream  

  • maybe italy's clothes but it's gelato but  i think argentina does a little better  

  • truth be told yeah this is a cool little local  spot we've come to a place called chocolate  

  • chocolate and yeah it's just a fun  little place just like an arcade there's  

  • games for kids there's a carrot there's  a carousel we've got ice cream over here  

  • we've got chocolate over there we've got  pastries um yeah just a fun family place  

  • and we've got two flavors of ice cream to try  so which one did you order well i went for my  

  • childhood favorite strawberry strawberry i'm gonna  try yours first and then we'll move on to mine

  • oh that's good yeah very natural  flavor yeah it's artisanal ice cream  

  • and over here guys i am whenever i get  the chance of dulce de leche i i do  

  • and so we're getting coconut with dulce de leche  it's a bit of a running joke that i always have  

  • dulce de leche we've even had some locals  come up to him and be like dolce de leche

  • oh my god this is perfect just a little bit  we don't want to ruin our appetite for pizza  

  • and for dinner you won't be surprised to hear that  sam found a pizzeria two nights in a row who would  

  • believe it this place was called puerto mitre  oh hider pizza monster i am the pizza monster  

  • oh my gosh we went to the museum this afternoon  and the the staff there were super nice they
