Que lindo es Buenos Aires!

In late November, I spent a few days exploring the “Paris of South America”, Buenos Aires. It is the most visited city in South America and I can see why. The city is filled with outdoor cafes and beautiful architecture dating from 1880 through the 1920s. According to this article, this period was a time when “Buenos Aires was one of the world’s richest, fastest growing cities. At the height of the great European migration to Argentina in 1914, 30% of the population was foreign-born. Neighborhood architects built in their own styles flavored by their home country.” Take a look at the European feel this city has to offer.
