La vida en Argentina

so, I had a "typical" Argentine night the other night (by typical I mean the way the hours just go by).... here is how it went.....
went to church at 9 pm, the service was over at 10:30 pm. The young people all began talking, conversating. At 11:45 pm the church people finally wanted to close the building up, so we moved outside onto the sidewalk. At 12 midnight I got VERY hungry. At 12:30 I was getting impatient at the others for not deciding a place to eat, so I said Im not waiting much longer.. I let people know that they were more than welcome to come to my place and order a pizza or something... they said they wanted to go out to a place, and took a while longer to decide.... finally they decided to go to a place... we all got in the cars and made it to the place... it was 1:15 am by the time we got there. Because we were a big group, about 30 of us, they didnt have enough seating, so we had to kind of arrange various tables and what not... 1:30 am i finally got a seat. Now, the Argentine waiters do not work for tips, so the service is... slow... to say the least.
I finally got my order in around 1:50 am. My food came at 2:10 am. By the time we finished eating, and waited for the bill, it was 3 am. We left, but being that I was sooooo hungry.. I was not even near being full... We walked down to the ice cream shop and entered there at 3:30 am. By the time we got our ice cream and chatted some more, it was after 4 am. By the time I walked home and got to bed, it was 4:30 am!!! So the next time you wake up at 3 or 4 in the middle of the night.. just think, somewhere in the world, its very possible that I'm just getting to dessert!! laters

Great blog! Loved it! I guess Ana isn't the only one who wants to eat in the middle of the night. Apparently there is a whole country on her schedule. By the way, I could sell you a box of shrimp for $100 just in case you get hungry again.

what is the Argentine work schedule? (or is this just the typical student life?)
