Carlos' Quotable Quotes

Now that Carlos is here, I wanted to make a small list of his best quotes so far. Here goes:

"I hate colors!" - He denies this one
"Knowledge isn't power."
"Now I know I hate it!"
"You don't even care!"
"I hate quality!"  - This one was kind of a paraphrase

Notice how they are all negative!  But hes not having a terrible time here, thats just his way.

Carlos approves of this message.

Oh wait, that just prompted a new quote:

"I don't approve of anything!"

Trash Bins

Yea, its a slow blog day. 

Seriously though, I noticed some time ago that the trash bins are smaller here.  Much smaller than the US.  Why?  These are the questions that keep me up at night.

My guess is its just a different view towards throwing things out.  In the US, everything is disposable, and there is so much waste.  Logically, then, you need a bigger trash bin.

Now, herein lies the rub:  does our view of waste influence our trash bin size OR does our trash bin size influence our view of waste?  Hmm...

Where am I going with this?  It would be nice to derive some action item here, but for now its just a simple musing.

Meat Revisited

Last week I went to the highly touted steak house called "La Cabrera."  It was definitely good, on par with my prior top 2.  So now they are the top 3. 

One really nice touch at La Cabrera was the complimentary champagne while you wait for a table.  Classy!  Of course, they don't take reservations, so there's always a wait for a table. 

So here is my up-to-date review list:

La Bolsa (Centro): Quality: 3/5 Price: 40 pesos
Suipacha Almacen (Centro): Quality: 4/5 Price: 40 pesos
Cervantes (Centro?): Quality: 3/5 Price: 40 pesos
Des Nivel (San Telmo): Quality: 4/5 Price: 40 pesos
La Churrasquita (Centro): Quality: 5/5 Price: 100 pesos
Kansas (Palermo): Quality 5/5 Price: 90 pesos
La Cabrera (Palermo): Quality 5/5 Price 120 pesos
