I arrived back from Buenos Aires, South America a few days ago and I find it amazing how life goes back to normal, in my case, in a matter of a day. I was in another reality, where a buzz of Spanish speakers surrounded me and tall, ornate buildings were the norm. One thing that is so different to way South Africans live is the way that South Americans use the time in the day. Shops only opened from 11.30am, lunch is served from 3pm, dinner at 9pm and clubs only open at 2am. The South American schedule is ideal for those who love a long lie in and a good, late night out!
