VERY important question: how can Buenos Aires be so cool in so many respects and NOT sell queso fresco in any of its supermarkets? Like Chilean supermarkets, the stores here sell mayonnaise you can squeeze out of a bag (why not dispense with the whole bothersome business of using a knife and just squeeze la mayonesa directly into your mouth, am I right?), a variety of powdered soups, and all the dulce de leche you can handle, but no queso fresco. Also I am noticing a distinct lack of palta, but maybe I just need to look harder. I know you´re on the edge of your seats. Don´t worry, I´ll keep you posted.
