Argentina has a comparatively nocturnal culture – most restaurant bookings are late into the evening. At 8pm, it’s not just takeaways that are open, but ‘proper’ restaurants too. In Buenos Aires, you can leave your house at 10pm to go and eat asado. Shops too are open longer. Owners might open around 8:30 in the morning, and stay open until 8pm. In general, more shops are run as independent businesses than in the UK. Late night shopping might be until 10pm and it’s not uncommon for the owners to work 12 or even 14 hours a day, with half an hour / 25 minutes for lunch. In Capital Federal shops are open on Sundays, but generally only until midday – ‘los shoppings‘ (malls) are typically open much later. Families have started to go out more often on Sundays and as a result, shops are open for longer. This makes me wonder: if shops are open for longer, are people going to spend more money, or will they just spend the same amount of money over a longer period of time? All this can take some adjusting...
