Tango…passion…porteños…art...

ARGENTINA | Tuesday, 24 June 2008 | Views [597]

Buenos Aires is a city where tango is danced almost everywhere, anytime and by everyone… where love is in the air and easily spread to everyone no matter age or gender…where art and poetry is essential part of living… where music, dancing and creativity is nurtured on every corner… where book stores have longest working hours and are most visited stores…where football is a passion and football stadiums are always full... where thousands of atmospheric cafes welcomes you for “un café con medialuna y diario”… where protesters regularly go on the streets to stand for what they believe in … where visiting the posh Recoleta cemetery is an peculiar (yet artistic) experience by itself...where night scene is extremely active and majority do not go to sleep on weekends before sunrise…where people walk around with thermo bottles and share cup of “mate” with friends… where famous Argentinean steaks and wines  is real event for palatals…where one gets easily enchanted by its beginning of 20th century atmosphere, old European style buildings, San Telmo bohemian streets, majestic boulevards, colourful La Boca…where numerous parks with beautiful old trees could be found around almost every block…where you can see professional dog walker strolling with sometimes more then a dozen dogs… where people frequently dance at milongas and visit one of numerous theatres… where the sounds of Carlos Gardel, Astor Piazzola or Gotan Project tango music can be heard from each corner of the city…

Buenos Aires is all that…and so much more!
