Why Touring Buenos Aires By Camera Is The Best Way To See The City

Monday, November 12, 2012

With its grandiose architecture, beautiful people and downright gritty street scenes where all these elements come together, Buenos Aires is a city made for photography, and according to the founders of Foto-Ruta, there is no better way to tour Buenos Aires, Argentina’s capital, than to do it through the lens of a camera. In what […]

Lost And Found In Buenos Aires

Monday, April 30, 2012

Sometimes we travel for our soul’s journey, to discover something about a place and something about ourselves. Time and again, people believe that those that travel are “running away from something,” and I keep saying, “perhaps we are running towards it.” Round one, Buenos Aires: a surreal, old-world cultural experience. A time to learn tango […]

Buenos Aires Was Really Romantic In 1932 (And Kind Of Sexist Too) [Video]

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

This movie short by MGM from 1932 shows Buenos Aires during its glory years. Well, glorious for the rich men who lived there, a little less so for the natives, the cows and the women who also inhabited “The Argentine” at the time. Check out the great shots of Plaza deMayo at 2:49, and BA’s […]

My 10 Ways To Revamp Argentina’s Top 10 Foods

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Every food needs a little evolutionary jump-start once in a while. As a fan of mash-ups (some of my favorite foods include shepherd’s pie and bubble & squeak — a post-Thanksgiving swirling concoction of leftovers), I think that combining one’s culinary cultural upbringing with that of another can only bring about good things. Which made me wonder […]

Buenos Aires: Living In A City Of Passion (And The Comedown)

Friday, June 3, 2011

I remember when I first walked the streets of San Telmo — a neighborhood in Buenos Aires — and becoming hyper aware that I was no longer in North America. The people, the architecture, the steak, the all-night partying was all very grandiose. The young ladies talking loudly on their phones, the groups of guys […]

Wandering Around Montserrat

Thursday, March 24, 2011

I have a knack for wandering around cities, losing my way for a few hours, but always finding my way to where I am headed. I think most travelers have this innate characteristic, but somehow I always forget to bring a map with me. It’s not intentional, I am just slightly spaced out. With so […]

Take Two And Tango In Buenos Aires

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I returned to the Plaza Dorego in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of San Telmo to watch the people dance. Every Sunday Night, one side of the plaza is reserved for a milonga — the Argentine word for a place to tango. It’s a tradition for the class to go. Every Sunday. To the right, a […]

Low-Cost Carriers To Greatly Expand Service In SE Asia

Friday, December 3, 2010

Nothing beats long-haul bus trip in Southeast Asia, with its blaring TVs, the hair-raising passings, and the curious roadside food offerings. But if you’re strapped for time and have a little bit of extra cash on you, plane travel is the way to go, especially now with the announcement of two huge players in the […]

Graffiti As A Public Display Of Life

Friday, November 12, 2010

In Buenos Aires, it is everywhere. It is overwhelming. I remember walking around at night with a friend and asking about it. “Do you paint graffiti?” I asked. “No, no. I don’t. But, I like it. It shows you that there is life in the city.” Growing up with a Canadian mindset, for a while I […]
