With only these first two weeks booked, I need additional places to stay… this is where things once again seem to frustrating. Finding hosts is pretty simple on AirBnB, having them accept you or even just respond back to you is very difficult. I am just looking for a host that speaks some English, in my price range, and in an area I’d like to be near. Going through a few people, I find there are many places listed, that are always listed, but don’t ever get a response for, and just denials. Going through about 5 of these, I finally find one where I receive a response back, with some questions, but otherwise a good to go. So it finally looks like I’ll have a place for a full month this time, right in the middle of Palermo!
At this point, I’ve also looked into Couch Surfing, using couch surfing as I want to stay in the area. May just do that little by little between some weeks if I can’t find a suitable host on AirBnB, or I might look for Hostels. Hostels are a bit outside my comfort zone, especially for the price, but I’m debating on maybe working at one for board. I don’t know at this point what I’m going to do, as options are available, and now I have no rush unless this AirBnB becomes cancelled on me before I arrive in a few days. Either way, there are options, and even though they may be frustrating to find something in my price range, I’m confident I wont be sleeping on the streets in Buenos Aires, there are indeed ways to survive, even when things don’t go as planned, granted I have a data connection on my phone or wifi for my laptop.
