Here's a little piece I wrote introducing the world to Buenos Aires, still a secret gem to many in the traveling world. I hope you enjoy it!!! Here we go:
Three thousand miles south of the equator,Buenos Aires draws the chic, cultured, and curious from all over the world.
Also called Capital Federal or abbreviated BsAs by its denizens, Buenos Aires conforms a small part of the Greater Buenos Aires, is the capital of the Buenos Aires Province (State) and the autonomous federal capital of Argentina. With an estimated population of 3 million in Buenos Aires city and 12 million in Greater Buenos Aires, this area accommodates almost 50% of the country’s total population and represents the 3rd most populated region in Latin America. Is the 3rd most populated in Latin America with an estimated of 14 million people which represents more than a 40% of the country total population.
BsAs is located along the shore of Rio de la plata (also called River Plate), the widest estuary in the world. The sprawling metropolis that makes of BsAs one of the largest city in the world. Is probably result of the commercial, financial, industrial, and cultural influence of its port, one of the busiest in South America, connecting Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Paraguay. BsAs’s resplendent cultural offering captivates its visitors. Along an easily navigable grid pattern, the city plays host to cobblestoned streets lined with leafy trees, classic Belle Époque architecture and stunning modern skyscrapers surrounded by carefully designed parks, squares, restaurants and coffee shops that resemble the European lifestyle while keeping the authenticity and exhuberance of the Latin American lands.
Tango flourishes in the dark milongas of San Telmo and La Boca, passion defines football for the porteños, and the Recoleta Cemetary exudes an eerie beauty. The succulent Argentine steak reigns supreme in the asado, only to be accompanied by the full-bodied malbec wine. And after a late dinner, Buenos Aires offers a thumping night life, from the posh clubs to the local dance halls.
