Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is a truly intoxicating place. With streetscapes and a culture of both Latin American and European influences, the different neighborhoods of BA provide the perfect excuse for aimless wandering and shooting. The Recoleta Cemetery houses some of Argentina's most (in)famous characters, and an incredible array of monuments and alleyways. Maps are available, but it's quite an experience to let yourself get lost among the statues and stray cats.

During the summer months, Parque Norte is a refuge from the heat, and is also an amazing place to people watch. The daily swimming exercise sessions play out like a 100-large amateur synchronized swim team badly in need of practice. There are also day-long soccer matches and other activities to watch or participate in. By the end of the day, the crowds dwindle, leaving a graveyard of beach umbrellas and forgotten lounge chairs in their wake.

The dizzying underground tango halls are a great way to spend a few late-night hours. Most halls start out by having one giant tango lesson, but turn into serious tango jungles as the night wears on.
