See Buenos Aires With Me

I will celebrate 10 years of visiting Buenos Aires in 2012!  Back in August of 2002 when I visited Buenos Aires for the first time, I had no idea how large a part of my life it would become.  Little did I know I would fall in love with the city.  Now I am eager to trade Chicago’s harsh winter for the Argentine summer.  In the past decade I’ve made a new life for myself  there, along with learning a new language and culture  (Spanish, or as the Argentinians call it, Castellano), and, most importantly, a group of wonderful Argentinian friends.  I continue to enjoy sharing my knowledge and love of the city with everyone who I can help convince to visit.   I will be in Buenos Aires from January through April. of 2012.  [Photo:  Puerto Madero at Night]

See Buenos Aires With Me!

In this blog I will share with you some of the experiences I have had as I’ve made my way in the city.  We’ll visit Buenos Aires’ neighborhoods, each with its own character, but all embued with the flavor–el gusto–of the city. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing the city with me as your personal guide.  I invite you to join me in 2012 (January-April) for your personally designed and guided visit to the Paris of South America.

My tour schedule is starting to fill!  Family will be joining me for a few weeks, four Chicago area friends plan to stay awhile after their South American cruise concludes in Buenos Aires for a few days in late January, and a small group of friends are starting to consider what days in March will be perfect for their 2-week visit.  Where will you be at the start of 2012?

Please join me here–and in Buenos Aires!

    I spent a few days with Demetria and Buenos Aires last March and she is fun to be with and a wonderful tour guide!
    She knows all the ins and outs of BA and you never feel like a tourist with her navigating the city.

    I’d love to join you but I’m off to the Czech Republic next spring with my sister. I think it’s wonderful that you’re celebrating a 10th anniversary.

  10. Very tempting! I turned down a chance to visit Cuba in early 2012 because it was out of sight expensive, but I’ve never been to South America, and your offer sounds great. I just might.

  11. Thanks Maggie. I’m there Jan through April; do come visit. Airfare is costly in high season, but well worth the expense.
