i would take to la plaza de mayo, where is la casa rosada and all the famous places from buenos aires....besides being a tourist place, it´s a beautiful place. it feels like you´re in europe or something... a lot of trees what makes you feel so good, just by walking trough it... buenos aires it´s a big city with a life of a small one.. you can walk on the streets any hour of the day ( i mean any hour!) of course there is some places that is not like that, as all the cities..but i usually came back from parties by bus.... and people would be siting on the streets talking as it was day....you can go wherever you want by bus or train....
THE DISAPPEARED ONES
‘Desaparecidos’ is the Spanish word for "The Disappeared." On March 24, 1976 the military seized power in Argentina and went on a campaign to wipe out Communism and left-wing terrorists. The military Junta collaborated with the governments of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay in what was called ‘Operation Condor’. During military rule in Argentina (1976-1983) more than 30,000 people were rounded up and never heard from again. Many were tortured and their bodies desposed of in undiscovered mass graves or thrown into the ocean. At one point there were as many as 340 secret detention centres.

San Antonio de Areco - a gaucho-town about 2-hours from BA by bus. San Antonio is a fun overnighter--you can go for a guided tour on horseback (like I did) or stay at a ranch where there are all sorts of activities Iin the off-season, however, there's not much to do at night.
the most exclusive mall in BA
Located in the heart fo Recoleta, Patio Bullrich is the most exclusive mall in Buenos Aires. If you are looking for international labels, this is the place to go. Do not expect to find "a good deal", this is where people go for the looks and the quality, not for the price. Very nice atmosfere and great for people watching.
