But later...

How much of a ghost town is BA in late Jan., early Feb.?

Re: similar to pwlewis

by Porteno

Everything will be open. I am not aware of this other post you referred to but you will find plenty of people and lots to do that time of year. Many people do take their summer vacations in January but by no means turns this rather large city into a ghost town. Between Christmas and New Years yes, it is very quiet in the city, but late January early February you will not be alone.

In the past far away, almost everything was closed during february, because it was the time when shop owners used to go to the beach. But when bad times came down to argentina, they started to take few vacations. So you will find many people and everything open for you.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Dog walkers

by sof76

You can see dog walkers everywhere, that's a curious custom in Buenos Aires. We are used to it, but people from abroad always get surprised when they see them!

Se pueden ver paseadores de perros por todos lados, es una costumbre curiosa de Buenos Aires. Nosotros estamos acostumbrados a verlos, pero la gente que viene del exterior siempre se sorprende al verlos.

Slang

by MDC6

If you talk to anyone at a conversational, familiar level, you'll notice a lot of slang words. Here are only a few of some of the more useful ones to know, since they might come up in everyday conversation:

Che: This is a very Argentine word. It's used almost like we use "hey" in English: to start a sentence, to get someone's attention, etc.

Boludo/a: One of the most common words used by younger people. And it's used a LOT, but ONLY amongst friends, because in some cases it's an insult. Its slang meaning is roughly "stupid," but in conversation is used to address someone. The only equivalent that comes to mind in English is the word "man," as in "What's up, man?" In Argentina you might hear something like "qué hacés, boludo?" Girls use it to address each other, too, but as boluda.

Gordo/a, flaco/a etc: Don't get offended if someone calls you gordo/a (fat) or any other term describing physical appearance. They're more like terms of endearment.

Pibe: kid

Chabón: guy

Guita: money

Mina: girl/woman

bondi: city bus

quilombo: a disaster/a mess

"Lunfardo" is practially a whole language of slang that developed in Buenos Aires and Montevideo beginning in the 19th century. It was used particularly among the lower classes of newly arrived immigrants, and it borrows words from many other languages such as Italian, Portuguese, Quechua, French, etc. Some of these words have made it into everyday slang (like quilombo and guita).

Wine, the easy and cheaper way

by Matravel about Disco

Disco is a supermarket chain. I've done an ample sample of their locations (in recoleta and the centro area) and always found a good wine selection. Which is always an option if you would rather avoid those expensive and over-rated wine shops that have emerged in every corner of Buenos Aires in the past motnhs. I've found that a bottle of Malbec, same year, same winery, was twice expensive in one of those "specialty wine" shops that in the Disco near Plaza San Martin. WINE, they usually have very good deals in a large selection of wines. They also have a good selection of Dulche de Leche, like the very hard to find Poncho Negro. A good Malbec bottle would be around 20 or 30 pesos. The Dulce de Leche was 6.50.

WHERE TANGO IS DISCOVERED

by RafaelTheSecond about SEÑOR TANGO

Buenos Aires and tango, you cannot think about the two separately, impossible. Every porteñno, native of Buenos Aires has a favourite tango song, and this country had excelent musicians who always concerned about showing to the world, their culture, their custons, and their daily life. Tango tells you many stories, tango shows how much a person can suffer from love and nostalgy, tango shows you the love of your home land, and the life of a certain time in Argentina. Some tangos also tells you updated news, tells about your life today. TANGO NEVER DIES....

They say that SEÑOR TANGO is tango for export, because it is a very sophisticated place, for sure not so cheap, and they have like a BROADWAY production.

You know how much I hate artificial stuffs, when I travel I like being close to the people and live their cultures...

Well, the production is signed by a very famous Buenos Aires performer called Fernando Soler, and they have original tango dancers, and they really perform the TANGO MUSIC with the soul, and the production let us back to the past when Argentina had a bohemian life, when Argentina simply began with the indians, the spanish, the gauchos and when finally the TANGO started to be heard in the docks of the city!

From Gardel to Piazzola the journey through the TANGO WORLD is simply fantastic from that house!

My friend Steve from New Orleans, myself, and two friends from Argentina, Aida and his son Martin who lives in Mexico were there enjoying a very pleasant evening! You really have to be casual, it is a very sophisticated house!
