Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

I came here as part of a family trip to the region, and was happy to explore this popular city. Besides the well-known historic districts such as Palermo and San Telmo, the city has a modern harbor area called Puerto Madero, studded with fancy hotels and eateries. The city is famous for Tango dancing and amazing steak (Lomito) which is so ubiquitous they seem to have it with every meal! Cafe culture is also quite big here, with corner cafes in nearly every major intersection. You’ll aslo see photos from La Boca, a river-mouth area just outside the city which can be cruised by boat.

I had been warned by local about street thefts and riot action, but honestly I didn’t encounter anything bad during my visit and felt pretty safe in most areas.
