Errands

If you thought running errands in the U.S. was tedious, you wouldn't believe what it takes in Argentina. I personally  kind of like it all back to basics old school style, but not many other people seem to, so the environment usually isn't too prime. Although there are one stop supermarkets, they usually have lower quality and higher priced stuff, so if your a quality and/or budget junkie taking it like a champ and running around to different places is your best bet. This means a fruit and vegetable store for produce, a butcher, a cheese shop, a bakery, a wine store, a florist and perhaps also a grocery store. Even though the shops are specialized,  you can still find a huge variety of quality between them. Finding a particular brand or unique product can be like finding a needle in a haystack. You have to shop around in each type before you can establish your reliable spots.
