Staying for a month

by wildchicken


I will be leaving for Buenos Aires in just a couple days and should be staying for a month. I am a twentysomething male traveling alone coming from Alaska, so I will certainly be looking for people to meet up with if anyone is down there and willing.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Not So Pink After All

by Bwana_Brown

The Presidential Palace, the Casa Rosada (or Pink House) derives it's name from it's pink exterior facing onto the Plaza de Mayo.

There are two theories as to how the 'Pink House' came to receive it's frontal colour scheme. One is that the pink colour was a compromise by President Sarmiento during his term in office (1868-1874) to placate the opposing interests of the two main political factions in Argentina at that time, the Federalists and the Unitarists. Following independence from Spain, the country had for decades been divided between the 'red' Federalists (the local 'strongmen' of the outlying territories) who favoured regional autonomy and the 'white' Unitarists of Buenos Aires who favoured strong ties with Europe. To keep the 'reds' and 'whites' happy, Sarmiento is reputed to have chosen 'pink' as a nice compromise - sounds like a politician to me! The other theory has it that the Argentine custom of using the blood of cattle for paint had something to do with it!

Either way, as you can see, the 'pink' paint did not stretch too far!

30 years ago was the "coup d'etat" agains the democratic argentinian government....i was so lucky to see and behold the peacefull demonstration around the capital avenues... it was a great event ...Buenos aires inhabitants get out to the streets to shout peace and freedom as they ever did before

Paddle, national sport of Argentina

by Waterdance

If you are into tennis or squash, you should try paddle.

Just rent a court and rackets and discover the way. You play with four persons, but of course with 2 is also possible. If you are with Argentinian friends, try to motivate them to go for a play with you, they will be surprised and find a play court for you. Argentinian women, if they are sports minded, like to play this as well.

the biggest mall in BA

by morochaargentina about Unicenter

The bigest mall in Buenos Aires is Unicenter, which is actuallu outside the Capital Federal, in the Martinez area, in the North of the Buenos Aires Province. If you are going by taxi NOT in peak hour, it can take you around 25 minutes to get there from downtown (and it will be around 25$ARG) If you are going in rush hour it can take up to 45 minutes to get there. It's a HUGE place and you will find ever single nice store there (including some international brands) This is my favourite mall, since you can find any store here.

They offer a FREE shopping tour (they pick you up downtown in 4 different hotels in the morning, you get there at 1 pm and get back at 6pm) They also offer free lunch, tax free and discounts, all you have to do is show your passport. You can check the time schedull ein their website or ask in your hotel.
