El Sol Hostel de Recoleta of Buenos Aires
I’m staying at El Sol Hostel de Recoleta of Buenos Aires for the next couple of days. It’s a youth hostel. People from all parts of the world come through here. One is from near Munich, another from British Guiana, France, Japan, Peru, Russia, Paraguay, Columbia, one a few blocks from where I live. Last night I enjoyed talking with a young Irish woman soon to return home after having traveled through many countries of the Americas. This morning I had a short conversation with a man who had nothing. Everything he owned, including shoes were stolen. The hostel is a sanctuary where new friends can be made. Today it did not rain. No one seems to like the rain. Maybe it's the Italian in them.
