Earlier today I had lunch at a nearby restaurant, upon returning to the apartment (after less than an hour) I found dark brown glass shrapnels blanketing literally the entire living room accompanied by an inundating, malt-y smell…
Turns out, in a freakish accident, one of the craft beers (offered by the host and left on a shelf before checkin) could cope even less with the 35°C heatwave in Buenos Aires and the bottle properly exploded all over the place in the short while I was away
The power of the blast was enough not only to send glass shrapnels to the furthest reaches of the living room 4-5 meters away, but you can see one such shrapnel pierce deep into the nearby wall
The host apologized profusely (I don't think anyone could foresee this, nor do I think it will happen ever again/anytime soon…) and after the initial scare she told me she'll be marketing their "explosive beer" to future tenants from now on 🧨
I practically have not slept last night to catch an early flight back to #BuenosAires but here am I, watching the Andes being all pretty and grandiose, and that's totally makeing up for the inconvenience

As practically anyone who has ever spent a few full winters in the Baltics/Scandinavia will be all too keen to tell you, feeling the rays of the sun on your face and the warmth on your skin in January is like a sweet kiss from a divine being themself. It is rejuvenating in ways that I'd struggle to express using words alone
Guess I wasn't the _only one_ who missed fresh #medialunas* terribly 💕
*Medialunas ("half-moons") are the Argentinian (latin-american?) take on croissants, except they handily beat 95% of all run-of-the-mill croissants mere mortals may come across in their lives. They are the tastiest, most bite-size and most wonderfully-textured pastry on the planet +if I say "right on par with a fresh-out-of-the-oven scandinavian cinnamon bun" you know I mean bizness! 💖)
Finally managed to get a breakfast at the hip downtown brunch place my brother works at! 🙀✨
The food was great as expected, as was the service, by the end of devouring the towering plate of 🥑 toast I felt like they'll need to drag me out on a stretcher, so good but soo full
Yesterday I tried purchasing a local public transport ticket in Munich in 3 different applications — ultimately giving up after 15 minutes.
Today I missed my train, and could not confirm if the ticket was valid for another train, so tried purchasing a new one in the DB app — not possible (or moreso, broken, the tickets were listed but no fares were available for purchase).
I'm not the only one either, the ticket inspector scanned my QR code, his app told him the ticket is "nicht gültig" but he also couldn't discern *why exactly* is it so? So he left me alone.
Anyway, Schengen or not, particularly cross-border rail is a glorious hot mess in Europe, have some pretty snowy landscape pics from the München-Salzburg route instead:
If you wanna keep tabs on Where in the World is Carm… I mean Bæla and Flaki — this is the place to do so.
