Hot. Busy. Polluted. Claustrophobic. Noisy. But for sure the most sophisticated place we have seen in South America so far.
Stylish beautiful women caught the eye. Men met to talk in cafes. Queues of commuters stood in line for buses. And public sector workers went on strike to protest against the new austerity drive.
We focused on a few areas of Buenos Aires. The Microcentro with its European styled buildings and shopping streets. Touristy Recoleta with its famous cemetery. San Telmo the tango, antiques and artistic quarter. And the renovated docklands area Puerto Madero.
It was overload for the senses. But even with their problems aren’t cities incredible social achievements.
