wooden train

The oldest metro in America del Sur. As old as yu can immagine with wooden trains! Oh yes! The oldest line (A) has still the very old trains with wooden walls, seats and dark interiors. The oldest stations look really similar to the Budapest- or Berlin ones from the first period of metro construction in the begining of the XX. century. Pretty cool. But it would be even cooler with some restauration works. The crapy thing about the metro in Buenos aires is the frequency after ruch hours, but even that one can handle. It stops its operation around 22.00!~Can you immagine? In such great and huge city, metro stops 2 hours before midnight! If you miss ur last train take a taxi or a bus (well, with the buses is tough also, coz they have no schedules at the bus stops hahahaha, so yu have no idea when they might come... or not).

As we visited Dan in his place, we wanted to get on the last metro, but then we kept talking and talking and it was around midnight! Thank God Dan drove us to the hostel!

One day, as we were going by metro to downtown, Caty saw that some guy tryed to steal something from RJ's backpack! She saw him opening the backpack and searching for things, but she was too scared to screem or say anything to us! Fortunately the thief didnt find anything, coz all valuables were hidden deeper inside! Good job RJ, yur backpack is the best!:) And damn thieves!
