The capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, is called “The Paris of the South”. Having lived in Paris for half a year a few years back and having visited it frequently as its only 4 hours driving from our home, I could not wait to finally visit this city and figure out what this whole comparison is all about. In hindsight we can say; yes, it definitely does have a lot of characteristics in common with Paris. It is actually incredible how many times during this week we compared it to something we experienced or know of Paris. The beautiful old buildings in every other street, the passion for food and drink, the careless driving of the inhabitants and the abundance of green in the city. And in addition to what there is to compare, Buenos Aires has so much extra to offer, let alone the friendliness of the people. I am going to try to take you along during our week in Buenos Aires, and maybe, I will be able to convince you to put this city on top of your bucket list (you should).
