I couldn’t believe what I was seeing as I was walking down the San Ignacio district. I was struck by a super pink glow in the air.
With all my respect to the Pink House. This building is authentically and unbelievably PINK!!!!!
This government is feminine in every way and I think it suits the Argentinian president, Christina Fernandez de Kirchner pretty well
But I don’t know if she has a Barbie collection inside also.
Next, I visited the beautiful Sant Palermo area which I have to say is one of the safest places in Buenos Aires so there is no need for you to be extra careful.
We ate in a typical, local restaurant called la Brigada famous for its meaty dishes. They certainly know about meat, in a different way but like the Uruguayans.
This restaurant is a classic as it says on the picture, however, what I found strange was that there were only foreigners inside.You should check it out if you ever go to the center in the San Ignacio district.
This is an indoor market housed in a European colonial building which feels very familiar to me as if I was in Spain.
Tango is the most popular dance in Argentina and surprisingly there are special places where you can have a drink and tango. This is a very sensual and provocative dance which i would recommend to anyone although it was too intimate for me to do this dance with a stranger.
El Señor Tango is a place you have to experience even though if it’s very comercial. Its is very easy and convenient to find at all hotels.
The tango dancers are amazing as well as the singers who have good voices. You can breath and feel the machismo ambience and I was a bit shocked at how whilst watching the show the middle-aged male singer made a lame joke comparing a mini cooper to a woman dressed in lingerie on the big screen. It reminded me of Berlusconni´s channel on Spanish tv when I was a little girl back in the 80’s. I was so embarrassed by his neanderthal joke and behaviour.
