The apartment looked the same in the photos but 50 years older. We like the atmosphere but things were so old that it looked like falling apart easily. The oven in kitchen was not working.
However the host family was very friendly that the hostess offered to wash the clothes for us with her washing machine. They even invited us to their family dinner in this new year eve. Although I may want to go to count down milonga, especially the one in Club Sunderland on Saturday and also new year eve count down, I would rather joining local family dinner. It is a family with 2 boys and 2 girls. We tried our rusty Spanish without success. The children helps us and their parents translating.
After dinner, we talked and drank till the count-down, when we kissed each other. Then we went out to the balcony of the apartment looking at firework by local community on the street. Also there were drunk people blocking the street with a junk washing machine and banging on it.
Feliz Año Nuevo !!!
