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.

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!
