My favorite conversations with cabbies in BA:
Almost every cabdriver I´ve met:
Cabdriver – So, who do you like in the election– Hillary or Osama?
Me -You mean Obama?
-Yeah, the black guy.
Or, one guy in particular:
Me- So, I was thinking of going to Bolivia and Peru when I´m done with Argentina.
Cabdriver- Oh no, dont go there, those places are really poor.
– Oh really?
-Yeah, theyre like giant slums. Youll get robbed as soon as you get off the plane.
-Yeah, its not even third world. It´s the fifth world. People still live like the flintstones there. You should go someplace nice– like Holland. Or Canada.
-Good idea. You sound like you must be a traveler yourself.
-Yeah, I read a lot. Just don´t go to Peru and Bolivia. There´s nothing to see there.
