Ahhhh..... Volta!

OK... The downside to having to go out to eat after 9:00pm with a 3 year old? He often falls asleep through diner. Add the fact that my daughter needs to wake up before 6:00am to get ready for her bus, and you can forget about ordering dessert. Get the entré and get out of there is all we have time for.

Volta to the rescue!

Porteños are crazy about ice cream. And this is a city where just about anything can be delivered right to your doorstep. So of course the ice cream places all deliver. Volta is one of the best.

So here it is 11:00pm and I've just placed my order. It should be here a few minutes after I finish this post. And boy will it be good. I can't wait!

my wife and i (fellow texans, btw) will be spending a month or so in BA next month, and were glad to find your blog. sounds like you're having a great experience there!

we'd love to meet for coffee after we get there (dec. 15) and talk about the city ... we won't be expats, but we'd sure like to pretend that we are.
