    ... cold beer and watch the tango. The only hassle here is the bombardment of pigeons.

    the funniest thing we've seen in a long time also crossed our paths. Not one to mock the afflicted but please, buenos aires pavements and roads are not for the faint hearted but here we are witnessing a bling guided walking tour.
