Hello Buenos Aires
This really is the city that never sleeps. Buenos Aires has an electric energy which radiates from the city’s residents, known as porteños. They’re the first to tell you dinner is eaten no earlier than 9pm and it’s normal to arrive at a bar at 2am. But Buenos Aires isn’t just for night owls. Street life is part and parcel of the city’s personality. Rows of sidewalk cafes and bars line every barrio or district, San Telmo lures shoppers to its buzzing Sunday flea market, and street artists and tango dancers pop up anywhere and everywhere.
There’s variety too. In the elegant Recoleta district, the beautiful cemetery guards the grave of Eva Perón, Palermo Viejo’s markets and boutiques are one-of-a-kind, and a carnivalesque atmosphere prevails when Boca Juniors play at La Bombonera football stadium. So grab an ice-cold Quilmes beer and make the most of the bold, brilliant, beating heart of Argentina.
