buenos aires 036


Today, our city is a melting pot of locals and foreigners. Many travellers pass through on their journeys and many find themselves unable to leave – enticed by the bustling city streets, the vibrant mix of people and the laid-back freedom of the Latin American lifestyle.

We, the locals, have learnt to look at our city from a different perspective; to enjoy sharing it with these newcomers. Which is what brings us here, to offer the traveller another perspective the city that has everyone captivated.

Can you handle the Argentine way of life?

For the Argentines, time is an issue. 5 minutes can easily become 15, or perhaps 30. Work can always wait until the mate has been drained and the weekend’ s gossip has been caught up on. Supermarket queues are never more important to the sales assistant than chatting away with a colleague. For the traveller, our lack of urgency and the fact that something as simple as picking up your mail can take the best part of an afternoon may be fustrating, but for us, it is a way of life, a part of our culture and something we find impossible to change.But learn to be patient and put aside your preconceived notions of time and punctuality, and you will surely come to love our laid-back way of life.

Here at Enter Buenos Aires, our aim is to not only provide information and advice but to offer a space for travellers to connect and share those thoughts and memories that cannot be summarised in writing.

This is the area for us, locals and foreigners, to come together and share our musings, photographs, stories, memories and anything else that comes to mind. And, of course, this page is open to anyone and everyone to contribute.

Martí­n Miguel. Enter BuenosAires.
