Argentina – Buenos Aires

Argentina – Buenos Aires

Discussion started by RussianMix 15 years ago
One of the most exiting and beautiful countries in South America situated between the Andes peaks in the west and the southern Atlantic Ocean in the east and south. Its elegant capital, Buenos Aires, is flavored with European sophistication. It has the largest avenue in the world – Avenida 9 de Julio and a unique mix of the colonial and European architecture.

Buenos Aires is not only the great city but also the most sensual – it’s a place where Tango was born, nourished and admired. It is the heart (corazon) of Buenos Aires. You can hear the music of tango everywhere – on the streets, in cafes, restaurants and …milongas – the social scene, party (fiesta) for tango dancers. This music captivates me, it invades my mind with the power of eternity. I can not understand it – it’s incomprehensible – but can only feel it and dance it. Nothing compares when you dance with this music – you fade away from this world and journey to the world of ecstasy – ecstasy of your feeling, your heart.

My best neighborhood (barrio) to stay: San Telmo (Brasil & Defensa) – Hotel "Los 3 Reyes") – inexpenise, clean and nicely located

My Best Restaurant – "La Brigada" (Av. Estados Unidos) – considered by many as the best in the world (great meats and service)

My Best Milonga – "La Viruta" (Palermo- Armenia 1366 - Club Armenio) – Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun
