The Agony of looking for a job in Buenos Aires # 3 - Working in a Restaurants Kitchen

(continued from previous posts)
Taking advantage that I was studying gastronomy  I decided to check out the restaurant job options in Buenos Aires, so I began spreading resumes all over town but concentrating in my home neighbourhood that happens to be Palermo where most of the fancy Restos are located.
My cook resume is basic but has some experience and the fact that I am pursuing my chef studies helps.
so actually i was called to several interviews for positions raging from kitchen help to supervisor and head of Com's.
I ended up doing some trial days at a restaurant in "Las Cañitas" called "las Cholas" that has good service and food but I realised that they exploit their employees since my post that was to be the evening manager of the whole establishment during 10 hours 6 days a week was paid 400 pesos when the minimum pay for that amount of hours ranges from 1000 to 1200 pesos, the people that worked in the kitchen earned much less and the waiters had to survive off their tips, most of them being Venezuelans that are here escaped from their country.

In Passing snapshot - Cordoba cruizer

caught this Police cruizer in the city orf Cordoba, Northern Argentina, as I mentioned with the bmw cruizers of London, I do like the looks of a nice car in a police cruizer paint, but I do'nt think that police should have better vehicles than what the average person can affford, since this vehicle is an expensive unit here in Argentina.

83 Rosaio Hostel

 In a quick trip to Rosario, Santa Fe, I stayed at the 83 Hostel in  downtown Rosario.

Definitelly well located downtown Rosario with anice view of Calle Cordoba, decent beds and a very basic breakfast, but if you want to be close to the downtown amenities, its a good choice.

DOT Baires shopping Mall

here´s your average shopping mall located at the edge of Buenos Aires in the not so long abandoned neighbourhood of Saavedra.

This is mall you could find in Melbourne or Kuala Lumpur but if ypou´re in the area and don´t feel like going downtown or into the province, its probably a nice place to hang out.

Yay, 1000 pics in Fotolia

Yesss, I made it to 1000 pics for sale at adobes Fotolia site.
mind you it took me 11 years to do it with a total revenue of less than 300 bucks.
but anyway its a good thing to pass some free time uploading the files and going through the selection process.

In passing snapshot - Tatoo photographer

Personally I think that tattoos are for people with nothing else to show, but I don´t mind people with tattoos as long as they do´nt get totally covered in them.
So in this guys case I liked the designs that he had in his arm.

Fall in between showers in buenos Aires

After three weeks of miserable rainy weather there was finally a series of sunny days that allowed the trees in Buenos Aires to get into Autumn mood.

I was fortunate to have some time and take some shots of the fall colours before the rain came back for another week.

these were taken in the Nuñez - Saavesra hoods in Buenos Aires.
