(you may wish to start playing my Buenos Aires theme song in the background while reading this.)
last night there was a mistake fare from Mexico City to Buenos Aires for ~$150 round trip. my travel calendar is pretty full until next summer but i couldn’t let this pass and am squeezing in a workation in early February.
i’ve been to Buenos Aires once before, thanks to a 10-day business trip in july of 2010. (work paid for my Reciprocity Fee and i’m finally getting to use it again — yay!) there are only a handful of cities i get truly excited about revisiting, and BsAs is one of them. looking back on my tweets and photos, i think it’s because it was filled with such indelible experiences that i was able to fit in outside of work hours (besides the regular touristy things, which were also great).
let’s hope this time will be just as amazing, despite having fewer free hours.
after the concert i went to a milonga and tried to tango. oh, that wasn’t pretty. but at least i can say i tried! i apologize to this day to my dance partners and their toes. (as an aside, the gay-friendly milonga i went to was really awesome.)
