Just a quick post about how we celebrated the World Cup Final in Buenos Aires. It was so exciting to see Argentina make it into the final.  They are so passionate about football (soccer) here and it was quite a phenomenon for me to see – I’m so disinterested when it comes to sport generally!

Every Sunday, the working class barrio of Mataderos puts on a local folk market called the Feria de Mataderos.

Puerta cerrada (closed door) restaurants are really popular in Buenos Aires and I have been very excited to dine at one of these. Now don’t get me wrong – I love a good Argentine […]

Tonight, I went to my very first opera. Danny surprised me with tickets for my birthday (a few months ago) and it was the perfect occasion for us to finally visit Teatro Colon. Teatro Colon is the elegant opera house in the heart of Buenos Aires. It rivals the best of the European opera houses and really […]
