Hello my friends,
So, I´m back. I have to admit that I have to get used to Buenos Aires again, the city is kind of rough when you first arrive and you definitely need someone to take care of you. Thank god I have myself, but you, poor thing? You are alone. Well, not anymore, I´m back in business at least till the beginning of August, when I will head back to the US.
How are you doing? Did anything remotely interesting happened in the city? New restaurants to recommend?
Now I have to go. No, I don´t have to do anything interesting, but I have to catch up with my siesta time, which I completely neglect while in the northern hemisphere.
The one and only

Hello my friends,
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
This is just a quick note to let you know that I won´t be working for the next 7 months (starting December 24th).
I´ll be living in the US for that time, so all the bitches in the US, I´d be happy to take your tour (free of charge, of course, cause I´m the queen of all bitch-tour-guides and you owe me).
That´s it for now.

Buenos Aires tends to be a culturally dead city during the summer (specially on January); theaters close, the bands go on tour to the shore, etc, etc. But you don´t have to worry: first, because I can fill the emptyness of your life with one of my tours, and second, because the city organizes tons of cool activities including concerts, live theatre and movies.

The guys from BAcast invited me to participate in the episode 9 of their podcast and I had to explain them which are the questions that my clients (AKA tourists) ask more frequently. Please don´t feel bad if you were a client of mine and asked one or more of these questions (you probably did).

For those who were wondering if I was still alive, here I am (alive).
I do not like to talk about my private life a lot, but I think it´s fair to explain why I´m not writting as often as I used to: I´m back at school. Yes. That´s the reason why. (Note to myself: I should talk about attending university in Buenos Aires)
So that´s basically it.
Oh no! that´s not it: I moved again. I live in Palermo with all the new-richs and wannabes of Buenos Aires. It´s a long story that I´m not going to tell. (Note to myself: I also have to write about the pros and cons of living in Palermo) (Note to myself: you don´t HAVE TO do anything, you are not getting paid for this)(Note to myself: If you don´t write you won´t get new clients)(Note to myself: shut up or I kill you)(Note to myself: is this being burn out?)
Anyway, how are you doing?

Tomorrow there will be an event "TANGO FOR HAITI" where they´ll be collecting food to take to Haiti. Bring Powder milk or rice and you will be able to enjoy a tango concert with a lot of different (and good) singers. (plus, you´ll be visiting a neighborhood you´d never go to otherwise).

The years go by and I´m becoming nicer and nicer.
This time I just want to say Feliz Navidad (or Merry Christmas, in case you skipped your holiday-special spanish lesson).
As a nice person that I am (and also as a christmas gift) I´m going to list some facts that you should know if you are someone who has just arrived (and you are feeling lonely and looking for good parties where to drink till you forget that your parents don´t love you enough or something like that)
1. There are no good parties on christmas eve and/or Christmas day
2. There are some crazy porteños who might feel sorry for you and invite you to their house (look for them)
3. There are tons of people just like you in your hotel or hostel who are looking for another lonner to spend the holiday with
4. The day after tomorrow it´s only 2 days away

I was on my way to visit a friend when I decided I was going to buy some pastries for the tea. I was not in my neighborhood so I entered in the first bakery I saw. The counter was right across the front door, and behind the counter, of course, the owner of the store. I said "hi", he didn´t respond. I said," how much does the dozen of pastries cost?". "14". And half a dozen? He pretended that he hadn´t listened and he continued doing what he was doing: Nothing.
So, what´s the moral of the story: People who own small businesses here haven´t (and are not whiling) to learn how it´s done! I mean, the lady was obviously an old customer, whatever, but, hello, in order to have old customers you have to treat the new ones decently. I don´t mean "you have to love me because I´m spending 14 pesos here" but at least say hello. Anyway. I´m not going back to that store. One more store on my black list.
That´s it for today.
By the way, there is a Jazz festival going on, don´t miss it.

Today, the city is celebrating the existence of the the traditional cafes (we call them Cafes Notables). And usually when the government of the city wants to celebrate something, they hire some tango bands to play, and this is not going to be the exception.
The cafes notables are a must-see. So make sure you go to any of them during your stay. And remember that if you go today (monday 26th) you might also see a traditional tango orchestra or some tango dancing, or something tango related.
London City - Avenida de Mayo 599

Hi There, it´s been a while since my last post. So, Hello, I missed you, my people.

I´ve notices that with all the influenza thing the population of Buenos Aires has developed a new syndrome. The middle-aged-housewife syndrome (also called loser-without-a-job syndrome). This terrible disease consist in watching a lot of TV(specially the news) and buying every single crap that they say. If we have 100.000 people with Influenza N1H1, we have about 12.000.000 with a severe case of middle-aged-housewife syndrome.
Friday, July 03, 2009
You are probably fully aware of the influenza thing going on. I mean the hysteria, paranoia and all that.

Before buying property in Buenos Aires, you have to think twice. And after you meditated for hours and you came to an affirmative answer, think twice again.
