Wanderlust Wednesday – Buenos Aires, Argentina

I must have been dreaming of “Evita The Musical” because all I have been singing is “Hello! Buenos Aries…What’s New Buenos Aires!” A random song to get stuck in my head, but a beauty none the less. So today we visit the song’s inspiration and the birthplace of tango…Buenos Aires, Argentina. Enjoy!

“Buenos Aires (/ˈbweɪnəs ˈɛəriːz/ or /ˈaɪrɪs/,[5] Spanish: [ˈbwenos ˈaiɾes]) is the capital and largest city of Argentina, and the second-largest metropolitan area in South America, after Greater São Paulo.[6] It is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata, on the continent’s southeastern coast. The Greater Buenos Aires conurbation, which also includes several Buenos Aires Province districts, constitutes the third-largest conurbation in Latin America, with a population of around thirteen million.[3]”

“Buenos Aires is one of the 20 largest cities in the world.[9] It is, along with Mexico City and São Paulo, one of the three Latin American cities considered an ‘alpha city’ by the study GaWC5.[10] Argentina has the third best quality of life in Latin America.[11] Buenos Aires’ quality of life is ranked 81st in the world, with its per capita income among the three highest in the region.[11][12][13] It is the most visited city in South America (ahead of Rio de Janeiro) and the second most visited city across Latin America (behind Mexico City).[14] It is also one of the most important, largest and most populous of South American capitals, often referred to as the Paris of South America.[15]
Buenos Aires is a top tourist destination,[16] and is known for its European-style architecture[17] and rich cultural life,[18] with the highest concentration of theatres in the world.[19] Buenos Aires will host the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics.[20]”
