Argentina vs Uruguay 11 Oct River Plate Stadium

by lindaveroni

Friends visiting from the UK wants to go to the Argentina-Uruguay game on 11 Oct in River Plate stadium. Any suggestions on how I could book them tickets? As they don't speak Spanish would it be best to book through some sort of tour company or would they be OK on their own? Many thanks in advance!

Hola Linda:
creo que es mejor para tus amigos ir con alguna compañia, porque de esa forma tienen asegurado el transporte ida y vuelta. Cuando se vacia el Monumental, no tenes forma de volver. Mi experiencia despues de los Rollings fue caotica.
Ademas, la compañia se ocupa de sacar las entradas.
Fijate en el foro de Argentina, poniendo key words. O busca en el mismo foro hacia atras. saludos.

It is one of the best matches in Southamerica. I am sure that this day the Stadium will be full of people.
I had a good experience in 2006 when i could not buy tickets for Argentina Vs. Brasil and contracted a tour by Tangol, that is a first company in argentina that organize this Excursion. the web site is www.tangol.com and everytime they have tickets.
Enjoy the match.

Gracias, Ana. Me parece que voy a reservarles algo con Tangol, que me recomenda Guillermo. Así no tengo que preocuparme por ellos! Un beso, Linda

Thanks Guillermo! I've had a look at Tangol's webpage and they have tickets. It seems very expensive but I think they'll feel much more relaxed going with a tour so it'll be worth it. Best wishes, Linda

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Paris of South America

by tini58de

Buenos Aires is described as being the Paris of South America - and there is something to it!!!!

Initially most visitors are steadfastly determined not to fall into the tourist trap in Buenos Aires and solemnly vow not have anything to do with anything remotely connected to Eva Perón, tango or football. Very few succeed in their goal, for once in the city the visitor becomes engrossed in efforts to experience one, if not more, of the three elements that the capital is traditionally famed for. Nevertheless, Buenos Aires is littered with museums and magnificent mansions and buildings. After sightseeing and shopping, there are fantastic parks to relax in and bars and cafés for sampling the excellent local cuisine.

Tango on the Argentinian way

by ptitetoile

As you can see on my home page, tango is a passion and it is like that now for almost 5 years! I passed through the different phases : I did tango lessons, a lot of tango balls with the same partner, then I danced with different partners, always improving my style, then I travelled to go to festivals in Spain, Switzerland, France, The Netherlands dancers....but only one experience was missing : dancing in Argentina, the home country of Tango! So I was quite impatient to know how it was!

I saw that dancing in Buenos Aires is quite different than in Europe. I knew it more or less but experience it is something else (For more info about tango, see my travelogue on my Buenos Aires Page :-)

1) The rule for inviting of being invited to dance
In Buenos Aires, the search of the partner is made by the eye contact : you have to look to the person you want to dance. If the other answer with an accepting look and smile with a little move of the head... then it's Ok and you can meet on the dance floor!
The women does not ask to dance (unknown people) as in Europe (It is so frustating!!!!!)

2) The dancing style is close and small. There is not enough space to make big moves and high ganchos!
3) The general use of tandas and intermediary song
A tanda is a set of 3 or 4 tangos of the same style. The intermediary music (that can last 10 tot 60 seconds) means that the people have to go back to their seat. Then they can again dance on another tanda with a different partner. This rule is great to dance with a lot of different people but not when you found a great dancer!
4) The music style is quite "old". There are not a lot of new tango version, orchestra or neo tango (like it is in Europe)
5) When you arrive, you have to sit at a table which is yours till the end of the ball. Sometimes, the people at a table does not want to "share"....

The tango in Buenos Aires is thus quite traditionnal...and I prefer the modern form of tango but it was something I had to experience!!!!!

Golf

by clmetal

We played at the Jockey Club and Olivos. About 45 minutes and 1 hour from the city. Greens fees, including a caddy, was $50 (you also tip the caddy and buy him lunch). Great courses and well worth the money. The caddies were top notch as well. Taxi ride is probably $15 - $20 each way and you should bring your own clubs. We brought way too many balls (your caddy will not let you misplace any!)

Great shopping for leather goods

by esmerkingsland about Galerías Pacífico

Prune shop for leather bags and shoes, very fashionable styles. Great prices, of course the conversion is very good. Very good prices compared to other leather shops. Never leave Buenos Aires without buying leather products. Check out Prune for fashionable bags, wallets, belts. Gramoldi for shoes. Average US$ 60 for a good quality leather bag. About US$ 60 - 90 for leather boots.

The Most Origional Nightclub in Buenos Aires

by WigglesMalibu about Club 69 @ Nicieto

The Night "Club 69" is held on Thursday nights at a Club called Nicieto. The great thing about this club is that there's a different theme night every week and about a dozen or two people are there as hosts or performers. Complete with elaborate costumes these performers dance on stage for an hour or two at around 2:30am. There's also a group of breakdancers there "battleing on the dancefloor" every week which is great.

The second floor is the VIP area and if you're creative enough (or if you're a beautiful girl) getting up there isn't too hard. Simply ask the staff where the head doorman is and when you find him confidently tell him you are a photographer for a club magazine in your homecountry and would like to take some pictures from the second level.....or something like that ...just be creative. One thing I've noticed is that Buenos Aires is extremely class oriented ....much more so than in N. America. With that said, Club 69 attracts a middle to lower middle class crowd so its really not a very dressy place. Jeans and a T will do.
