Go to Tandil... and do not...
Go to Tandil... and do not look for the 'moving Stone' it felt so many years ago...
But you can go to 'The Centinel', another famous stone and when you came back to the city, buy marmalade at 'The Cazador'.
Other places: Sierra del Tigre, Dique & Lago del Fuerte, The Waterfall (a tiny one), Calvario Mont, Independence Park. Here you must visit 'Epoca de Quesos' for a piece of cheese and a cold beer. It's on San Martin & 14 de Julio.

argentine view of the politicians
This wonderful country was raped and pillaged by the politicians for decades and at last the argentines have woken up to it..
I admire the current view of the politics by the general populace.. here on avenida 9 julio, expressed not so elegantly
ear plugs are needed if you are a light sleeper
if you are a light sleeper and you are in Argentina during the Christmas and New years celebrations pack some ear plugs as they love to set off firecrackers in the streets during this period and it goes on most nights till all hours of the night.
This is the disco burned some time ago where i said in other tip that died around 200 young people in a New year's eve !! such a pitty !!
in the other pic you can see the memorial with pics from evertone and some dedication notes from friends, family...
You can find this place in Miserere Square going up by Rivadabia and some blocks passing Congreso building
quilmes rock festival
-I love going to concerts. So when I was in argentina I’ve heard about Quilmes rock festival in Buenos Aires.
It takes place every year. In 2008 lasted 4 days at the end of march and one day was dedicated to local rock bands. I went the first day to see Black Lebel Society, Korn, Ozzy Osbourne and more. The festival took place at the River Plate Stadium and I payed 130 pesos(26euros) for a ticket at the arena.
The people started to go there very early, there were a lot of long waiting and waiting outside and at the end there were more than 30.000 inside. The strange thing was that they didn’t have beers inside the stadium, not even Quilmes beer that was the officially supporters of the festival!
You can take tickets from the website below but I preferred to go to the ticket booth of ticketek that is located at Microcentro, Viamonte 560 (Galería). an old black tshirt with the logo of motorhead will be ok :)
