Argentina is a beautiful country, the second largest

mixture of the world’s major capitals excitement and
the typical South American style of “living and
enjoying the simplest and meaningful things in life ”. If

miss most of what feels to be in your own town while at
the same time the city will progressively introduce its
marvelous, unique, and contrasting elements to you. In
Latin-America, this city is well known for its similarity
to European cities such as Madrid or Paris in terms of
architectural ambience, the glamorous and bohemian
life style, with the typical Latin-American touch that
makes it unique. As the great author Jorge Luis Borges
once wrote, “Buenos Aires itself is a superlative”.
1. EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
Please make sure you are open to the unexpected and
you will get back home with the best abroad experience
of your life. Do not over pack since any unexpected
situation can be solved. The city offers most of the
resources you will need. It is not necessarily the way
food, for instance, it is served to you but rather the
quality of it and the unforgettable and enjoyable
moment you experience. Same applies to how walking
around the city is difficult to describe unless you do it
by yourself. The experience is unique for everyone. It
depends how open you are to visit this place with a
different optics, with different expectations. Upon
arrival drop your stuff, dress comfortable, just the way
you naturally are, and go out to explore the city. Just
like exploring and new territory without worrying about
bringing food, provisions or water with you. Although
Buenos Aires is a very sophisticated city, simple is best.
2. EAT THE MEAT

farming industry and especially because of its beef
based exporting culture. Buenos Aires is one of the
world’s best places where to find the most varieties of
beef cuts at the most affordable prices at any place you
decide to stop by if you are hungry. In Buenos Aires,
feeling hungry or just taking a break to munch is like
breathing. Even though there are famous and
recognized places where to have a long and pleasant
meal, you can be sure that any place you decide at any
minute, around any neighborhood and any block, will
offer you at least a minimum variety of beef cuts to
impress your appetite and culinary knowledge. Do not
expect to have fancy restaurants and beef recipes with
the most fancy and cutting hedge trends in the cuisine
industry, but rather the most delicious and tender beef
cuts. You might be surprised to taste what a simple
touch of little salt can be enough for meat. In fact, you
might end up stealing a few kitchen tips to take them
back home with you. Beef and poultry quality is so
good and tender that you would be even tempted to try
to cut a piece on your plate using a fork instead of a
knife. Make sure you try the specials Bife de chorizo,
Vacío, Entrañas, Asado de Tira, Matambre, Centro de
Lomo, among an extended list of many others you will
find in any menu.
