More small differences between Buenos Aires and home:
-You leave your garbage on the curb in bags for pickup each afternoon.
-And yet, the garbage cans are wire boxes on poles, presumably so wild dogs and cats can’t reach the contents.
-I’ve seen at least three women in see-through white skirts wearing black G-strings.
-Milk for your tea comes steamed.
-Bookstores don’t have prices on the books, you have to ask.
-It’s unusually difficult to get change for large bills.
-They sometimes spray perfume on your purchases.
-Milkshakes are just milk blended with whatever flavor you’ve requested.
-At one local grocery store, there’s an express line for the pregnant and disabled.
-All the playground equipment here is still mildly dangerous. Working sea saws and merry-go-rounds, hard dirt ground so the pain shoots up your legs when you jump from the swing.
