I never thought I would find a gem like this in Cordoba but there it was … Starbucks. It’s located at Av Colón 608 in the province of Cordoba. One look at that big green sign and I felt like I was home. In fact, once I was in there I had convinced myself I was back in NYC. It’s nothing personal against Argentina, which happens to be a beautiful country, but I do miss the U.S. sometimes.
All the products and menus at Starbucks are in English and the customer service rep was kind enough to speak to us in English as well. Yes, I can speak Castilian (Argentinean Spanish), but my spouse is still getting the hang of it and I’ll admit, I’m still being pig-headed about speaking anything but English when I’m out in the city.
I meant to order a Caramel Frappucino, but I ended up getting some kind of mango smoothie drink that I can’t remember the name of. The point is that when I sat there across the table from my spouse I felt genuine relief to my homesickness.
