Racing Club v's Huracan on 15th Feb ??

by Bigmac52

Big Mac52 here again !

Am I correct in thinking that Racing Club are playing Huracan on Weekend of 14 / 15 Feb 09 ?

If this is the case can anyone tell me how I can get a ticket and also go with someone ( I am not to keen on going on my own - I've been once before and know that it is in a "rough area" )- at a push I could go by taxi and get a ticket for the best Seats in the Stand !!

I used a small tourist office which was based in San Thelmo the last time but I've lost the number and address so I'm a bit stuck.

I've tried Go Football but their site seems to be not working properly.

How much ? and is it escorted ?

I got fixed up with Copa Libertadores on Tuesday 17th ( Boca and a.n. other )at a reasonable price.

If Racing game cheaper than 250 pesos then I may go to it as well ??

Can you get back to me ?

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

If you like supermarkets

by wadekorzan

When I go to a foreign land, I am always quite interested to know how the people REALLY live, and always try to visit at least one supermarket. If you walk around many districts of Buenos Aires, you'll see many signs that say "Disco". This is not a discotheque!!! Disco is one of the biggest supermarket chains in the city. The other is called Norte. We also have Carrefour from France, though not so many of them, and also the biggest supermarket which is called Jumbo, and it is JUMBO! But if you are looking to go to a typical supermarket, try Disco or Norte. This is a good place to buy Yerba Mate also for those of you looking to take that home with you...also while you are in there, take a look at all the different cuts of beef there are, and especially the prices!!! A steak is one of the cheapest things you can cook at home! Tuna sandwiches would cost more...

Madres de la Plaza de Mayo

by Dabs

Every Thursday afternoon at 3:30 pm near Plaza de Mayo, the mothers and grandmothers of people who disappeared during 1976-1982 in the Dirty War gather, they have been doing so since 1977. The guidebook says they gather in front of the Casa Rosada but we saw these protesters at the start of Av. de Mayo a little later than 3:30 on a Thursday afternoon.

Tens of thousands are estimated to have gone missing during the Dirty Way, mostly young people killed for their political beliefs. The Dirty War ended at the collapse of the military government in 1982 after their defeat in the Islas Malvinas (Falkland Island) War. The mothers continue to march, to bring those responsible to justice, to find out the fate of their children.

If you want to know more about this organization, you can stop by the Asociacion Madres de Plaza de Mayo at Plaza Congreso (Hipolito Yrigoyen 1584 at Ceballos)

RIVER PLATE - BEST FOOTBALL CLUB IN THE WORLD!

by JonnyVT

Club Atlético River Plate, known also as River Plate or simply River, is an Argentine sports club best known for its football team, established in 1901. Its home base is the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Núñez, and it plays at the Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti.

"River Plate" is sometimes used as the English name for the Rio de la Plata, the river on which Buenos Aires sits. It is believed that in the club's early days one of the founders (Martínez) observed sailors playing impromptu football games in the port of Buenos Aires next to crates marked "The River Plate", hence the club name.

River fans and the press are fond of the nickname Los Millonarios. This name derives from the 1930s after some expensive transfers of players from other clubs, including Bernabé Ferreyra from Tigre in 1932. In 1979 - 1981, the River squad was reputed to be amongst the most expensive in the world.

Fans of rival clubs call River gallinas (literally hens, but more akin to chicken). This nickname was supposedly born in a game against Uruguayan team Peñarol, when River were ahead 2-0 but ended up losing the game 4-2. La Prensa's article (in Spanish)

Due to the red band in their jersey, it is also common to refer to River as El Equipo de la Banda Roja (the team with the red band) or simply La Banda (which also means "the band" -both as in "gang" and "musical group").

Some famous River teams earned nicknames, notably La Máquina (the machine), the team that astonished Argentine football between 1941 and 1945.

In 1996 and 1997, during a streak of titles (three Argentine titles, one Copa Libertadores and one Supercopa), River were sometimes called La Maquinita ("The Little Machine") by the press. That team featured Francescoli and younger players such as Juan Pablo Sorín, Hernán Crespo, Ariel Ortega, and Marcelo Gallardo.

The islands of Paraná River...

by lolitajane

The islands of Paraná River Delta
Tigre is the starting point to visit hundreds of islands forming up the Paraná River Delta at the mouth of Río de la Plata (River Plate), where there are residences, hostels and sports clubs. Tours along the Delta and to Martín García Island, a natural and historical reserve, start from the river port of Tigre.

It is advisable to choose the tour by Tren de la Costa (a coastline train), which in its 15 Km journey goes through the districts of Vicente López, San Isidro, San Fernando and Tigre, bordering the coast of Río de la Plata and allowing the traveller to see some historical mansions. The train stations have shopping malls or coffee shops and restaurants. The Parque de la Costa (an amusement park) in Delta station, offers different shows and mechanic attractions. You can also take catamaran rides along the Delta.

Not worth a centavo

by apogorelc about Gran Bar Danzon

It is a shame that a bar with such great reviews in years past has become such an offensive place. The service is lacking,to say the least. The prices now match the service - apalling. A glass of house wine was 25 pesos last night!!!! I have been here several times in the past and suddenly the waitstaff and the prices have changed drastically for the worse. I have been in Buenos Aires for 6 months and have to say I have not been treated worse than in this bar (my friends and I all ordered in Spanish.) There are so many better places to visit! Buenos Aires is filled with wonderful places and this is no longer one of them.
