Although we loved Patagonia and Tierra Del Fuego,these remote lands didn´t have much to offer in terms of restaurants, movies, nightlife etc. Arriving in Buenos Aires, we felt like we were back to civilization: restaurants everywhere offering every flavor on the planet, movies we hadn´t even heard of, people walking in the street late at night, supermarket (even a Carrefour!)…

We arrived late the first night and we figured we would have to starve until the next day, because nothing would be open. Yeah, right… We found an hostel in the microcentro, right by Avenida 9 De Julio (the widest street in the world!) and we barely had to walk ten meters before seeing bars, food, bookstores, cafés… What a sight! There were people everywhere, mostly eating in parillas (BBQ meat restaurants), all-you-can-eat buffets or sipping wine on the sidewalk tables. And yes, it was well past midnight. A street was lined with theaters and people were getting in popular shows. In the pedestrian streets, musicians were playing and people were dancing. Tango performers, not far, had gathered a small crowd. We felt safe and happy. The night was only starting…

  1. Did you stop halfway and take photos when crossing what is supposed to be the widest avenue on Earth? 😛

    I love, love, love Buenos Aires. The spirit is alive, and the passionate tango dancers!

  2. Salut Zhu,
    Buenos Aires must have been a breath of fresh air for you both.
    We all need our creature comforts of the city at times !
    What would Buenos Aires be without the Tango & the French born Carlos Gardel ? I LOVE the tango 🙂

  3. that looks like sooo much fun. i think i could watch a couple dance a good tango for hours. i love nightlife, too. and sidewalk cafes. now i want to go to buenos aires!
    but zhu, don’t you miss the canadian ice and cold? what would you give for a nice fist-full of wet snow down your neck right now?

  4. @kyh – Yes I did 🙂 See the lastest post!

    @Tulsa Gentleman – There is always a McDonalds around… I almost never eat there though… Although it could be seen as a cultural experience in a way, given the local flavor (and yes, a post on food is coming!)

    @Bluefish – It is almost as lively as Asia! Sorry Bluefish, but I still have troubles accessing your blog. I know it´s not you, just the connexion here…

    @beaverboosh – Oh yeah — remember, winters are long in Canada!

    @Linguist-in-Waiting – It´s pretty cool, and very natural.

    @barbara – Tango is so nice to watch, too bad I really can´t dance. I wish…

    @Seraphine – I miss it so much. Sooo much… I´m gonna have an iced Coke to remember how ice feels like. It´s like C here 😆

    @Sidney – It´s pretty trendy is cheap as well since the 2002 peso devaluation. Lots of people come to visit.

    @Shantanu – It is a great continent… a lot of variety, yet one or two language spoken (easier than learning !).

  5. It reminds me of Manhattan! With a South American flair of course. I would love to see Evita there, that would be fun I think. Glad you stay away from McDonalds. The local food is normally the best experience and part of the trip i would say!
