92 Bus Pizza Trek


92 bus

“I had a dream. A dream of pizzas. And the 92 bus.”

So begins an odyssey of epic adventure as I detail my trek through the inner city of Buenos Aires, following the route of the 92 bus, ida y vuelta, in search of pizza worth hopping on the aqua and cream colored public conveyance of the Empresa Microomnibus Saenz Peña SRL group. My voyage of discovery takes me from the railroad hospital behind Retiro’s train and bus station, through Recoleta, Palermo, Almagro, Villa Crespo, Caballito, Flores, Parque Avellaneda and Mataderos as I, and friends, sample my/our way through the good and bad of the slice world (color coded below for those not red-green color blind – red = don’t go, un-colored = okay/average, green = recommended, and if bolded, it’s a strong recommendation). Come along for the ride – it’s slow going, but it’s happening. [And the map: Excellent – bold green; Good – light green; Okay – yellow; Bad – red; Terrible – bold red]
