this winter (now is winter in Argentina) there are many people ill in Argentina, more then usual, it could be not romantic at all for your new love.

Three week ago Buenos Aires mayor declareed emergency...

I heard till last week many schools, cinemas, restaurants... were closed!
not a lot of people around, have you ever heard about H1N1?
It's not a matter to be young and strong.... beside with this flu old people have more chances to do not get ill as they met H1N1 virus when they were young.

Palermo SoHo would be a great area since there are many great restaurants, clubs, boutiques etc. Not so many coffee shops. As for hotels in the area take a look at The BoBo, , The Miravida SoHo Hotel, or the Home Hotel

Not sure what your budget is, there are cheaper hotels than the ones I have listed. One option might be renting an apartment and there are some fantastic flats available in Palermo SoHo and Hollywood. If you would like some recommendations please contact me.

Buenos Aires, the Federal Capital especially, is very European. There are cafes EVERYWHERE with outside seating. And their cafes serve sandwiches and some even full meals. The wife and I enjoy sitting out on the sidewalk, sipping a coffee or coke, and watching the world go by.

It is true that it is Winter there, but it gets nowhere as cold in Bs As as it does in Canada! Or even as cold as here in east Tennessee (USA). But it can get a bit nippy occasionally. I would find it a bit humorous at times when my workmates in Bs As would be astonished on days where I would come to work wearing a short sleeved shirt and no coat, but they would be wrapped up like an Eskimo.

Let's say that usually in August there is nearly always a week of "warm" weather, ante la tormenta de Santa Rosa.
I remember a August of some years ago, more then 30C in BsAs :)
August 1999 temperature were very very low.

of course not so cold like during Canadian winter, different latitudes.

Palermo would be the area, very romantic, full of cafes and restaurants and places to go to dance tango.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Learning Spanish

by Porteno

I have found this school to offer the best programs and at a great price for learning Spanish. It is a real school....Instituto de Ensenanza Superior En Lenguas Vivas Espanol Para Extranjeros (ELE)
Spanish for Foreigners Adults They offer several different levels from Elementary to Advanced. The elementary class is 4 hours a day four days a week for a total of 64 classroom hours and the cost was $arg 400. About what some of the private schools charge for a week or two. They do accept credit cards for payment.

You must register in person at Carlos Pellegrini 1515 Oficina de Cursos room 2 Monday - Friday 10 am to 8 pm. You can email them for information and also to register You also must take a placement exam, bring in your passport when you register.

This is operated by the Secretary of Education for the City of Buenos Aires.

The latest economic crisis in Argentina around 2002 left many without work and often without homes. Some people use all their energies and skills to make a living. The city of Buenos Aires came to an agreement with the poor, where the garbage put out on the streets for removal goes through a triage by the 'cartoneros'. They come around with carts as soon as the garbage is on the sidewalks and sift through it to collect anything recyclable. They can sell what they find to recycling companies. They have to work fast, to be done before the city garbage collectors drive by to pick up all the bags strewn on sidewalks. Usually, the cartoneros work as family units, silently and avoiding the looks of passersby. Many young children work hard at this, alongside their parents. It's a very hard sight to see but at the same time, it brings home to the more fortunate and often indifferent the force of survival.

I met many bourgeois owners during my stay. They were quick to blame the cartoneros for the messy state of sidewalks, saying that cartoneros picked what they needed and left disgusting garbage everywhere, to fly in the wind. I don't think that's true at all. I lived there 3 months and saw how the owners throw their garbage out in unclosed, small supermarket plastic bags. The garbage immediately attracts stray animals and then flies in the wind, before the cartoneros even get there. They pick up what they can sell but can't be expected to provide the large black bags and to clean up the bourgeois' mess. I think the owners need to get a social conscience.

The pic is of children of cartoneros having a break on New Year's Eve. They were playing children's games for once, a very special moment.

This picture deserves to be part of a museum, we are all grown up, with good profesional careers and in that time we were all students! :) But this pciture also shows that 10 years ago I was a real Tango Addicted!;)

My high school mate Andrei which now owns a grocery in Niteroi, myself, which now I am a tour guide, Mariano, which now is a famous radio journalist and little gustavo which now is a respectable master of computer science!;)

Ten years have passed but we are still together in just one family!

beautifful mall

by morochaargentina about Galerías Pacífico

This tiny mall, located in the "Calle Florida" has some beautiful paintings on the ceiling. I would recomend people that are in the area to stop at least for a cup of coffe to enjoy the art and the arquitecture. They don't have too many shops, so if you are not nearby, don't go there just for the shopping experience... (Unless you are staying in BA for a long time)
