A cosmopolitan city that makes you dance and follow the rhythm of tango while walking the streets of it… literally! My friends and I found ourselves passing the center and jig while the local man plays his mini accordion and couples dance the most passionate dance of the lovers. They say Argentina is the Paris of South America. I don’t like these kind of associations but for sure, it is the most european south american city. Have a look!

Plaza del Mayo is the center where the popular Casa Rosada (esp The Pink House) is – the presidents palace. he characteristic color of the Casa Rosada is baby pink, and is considered one of the most emblematic buildings in Buenos Aires. I found it interesting because of much loved First Lady Eva Peron (mid 20th century). As the First Lady and the Chief of Cabinet of Social Care, Evita used to give her speeches from the balcony of the Casa Rosada on behalf of labor rights.

Caminito (spanish Little walkway) is lively street museum in the neighborhood La Boca where the football player Diego Maradona is coming from. The place has a cultural significance because it inspired the music for the famous tango “Caminito” (in 1926).

In the evening we walked down the port and enjoyed the lights and the wind coming from the Atlantic ocean. Of course, we tried delicious Argentinian plata: the Patagonian steak and ham, cheese and red wine. Oh, what a time of my life! 🙂

The next we went a bit outside of Buenos Aires. We visited many of the deltas of the city that flows into Rio del Plata. We took a boat ride on Delta del Tigre and admired the private islands with fairytaled houses and gardens.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
