Subway drivers Union went on a 72-hour strike so Buenos Aires has become the city of chaos. It`s nearly impossible to take a bus because it`s packed or to find an empty cab, not to mention the traffic jam. You can spend looong minutes stuck in traffic. Everybody is late, meetings are postponed and you think it twice before making arrangements to meet somebody if not strictly necessary.
I take the subway every day to go to work but now I`m going on foot because -believe it or not- it is faster! Yesterday, I was half way when I phoned my coworker to ask him where he was. He was at the same distance but on a bus. I got to the office and he showed up 20 minutes later.
This strike is a good opportunity to get fit.Fast walking for 40 minutes every day is what most doctors suggest !!!
Have a good day!
