According to an old traditional saying, the streets of Buenos Aires have that je ne sais quoi, or ‘las callecitas de Buenos Aires tienen ese no sé qué. Busy cafés and bars, elegant barrios, vast parks, and breathtaking riversides combine to create an electric atmosphere that we enjoy every time we stroll along our green streets. Proud of our charming and vibrant cultural life, the local porteños are a sensual mixture of noisy, sociable, curious and welcoming people; always proud to introduce newcomers to the wonders of this modern Latin-American metropolis.

HOW TO GET AROUND

TAXI : Cab drivers in Buenos Aires never have change. So make sure you always have small bills and some coins for these occasions. We usually leave 10 percent tip.

BUS : Tickets are around 5$ (37p), depending on the distance. Machines don’t take bills, so always carry some coins with you. There are no weekly passes; Porteños use a SUBE card that can be purchased and reloaded in authorised kiosks.

    Dans une lumière légère…

    Une sensation

    douce et pleine

    de poésie retourne

    dans le coeur

    et dans l’aube

    d’un sentier:

    c’est le chant

    des étoiles,

    le souffle des

    mémoires qui

    rappelle la

    douceur.

    Francesco
