El Corso was awesome. Biggest parade I have ever seen in my life. Wore a soccer jersey of a local team today and got compliments from more than 1 old lady, which was a bit weird. Ate some of the best street food I’ve ever tried, although discerning between ‘carne’ and 'perro’ isn’t something I thought I would ever have to do. Stranger things have happened I’m sure.
