Sometimes it is necessary to have an excuse to fly, like going to eat asado, and have mate with pastelitos.

Not everything is just workload while you fly and not everyday is a day at work among airplanes. Sometimes it is just about finding an excuse to go up and around and perhaps visit places like Veinticinco de Mayo, about 300 km SW of Buenos Aires, where the people of the local flying club usually prepare excellent asados (sort of a BBQ, but better), prepare mate and pastelitos with membrillo jelly inside.

In the United States this is knows as going for the hundred-dollar hamburger, because that seems to be the price f the ride although it can be cheaper or more expensive, depending on various factors. But always the result is a good chat with friends and strangers that become friends, a nice meal and a pleasant day. So if you have good winds for your flight, what else could you ask for?
