  • What to do in Buenos Aires this September!

    September is Education Month in Buenos Aires. On the 11th of September we´ll celebrate Teacher´s Day, which is also the anniversary of the death of Argentine President Domingo Sarmiento. This day was named in his honor, as he was the first to introduce an Education plan in Argentina that was effective in bringing the overall education level of the country up to date with developed nations. President Sarmiento also encouraged the immigration of European educators, and built many schools and public libraries throughout the country, truly making great strides in education. A fun fact about Buenos Aires: nearly 60% of the population has some degree of Italian descent, and because of that, there are a lot of pizza restaurants in the city.

    Carnival in Peru and Argentina

    So with Carnival around the corner, and Brazil charging through the roof for their extravagant celebrations, where are the best places in Peru and Argentina to celebrate?

    In Peru, this is a much more traditional affair, with dances and songs performed, along with street processions and ceremonies all over the country. The place best known for Carnival is Cajamarca, where there is all the above and more. Here all the city’s inhabitants and tourists alike will dance around a ‘yunsa’ (also known as ‘humisha’ in the Peruvian jungle), appropriately decorated and adorned with prizes, such as alcohol and toys.

    The Master of Ceremonies kicks things off by attempting to chop down the tree in 3 blows, before handing the machete over to someone else. The fall of the tree marks the start of the fiesta as all surrounding people rush forward to claim the prizes attached to its branches!

    4. Grill with top chefs!
      Argentina claims to have the highest quality meat in the world, and they grill the fine cuts to perfection anywhere you go. A parillada along with good wine and happiness is a very common way of socializing for Argentineans as this student’s testimonial points out. If you are not afraid to gain more weight while living in Buenos Aires, than finish your asado with an indulging ice-cream!

    In Western countries eating on the streets is not a usual sight due to all the regulations. Here in Buenos Aires all is a tit-bit different. Actually, outdoor eating in Buenos Aires is just as common as anywhere else in Argentina offering visitors one of those true delights, and cultural experiences, of travel in Argentina.

    Surrounded by out-door vendors and Empanadas in Buenos Aires!

    My roommate Gigi, an Argentinean girl who is able to do yoga, tai chi and kung-fu (I feel really safe here), knows how to make homemade empanadas as well. Yesterday she came home with bags full of cebollas, choclos, semillas and other verduras to make some to sell on the street. She had made arrangements for her and a friend to sell empanadas vegetarianas during a concert somewhere in the city. She took to it and while humming to Indian mantras she prepared them in record time. A few hours later she dressed up and went out with a box full of deliciously tasting empanadas.

    There is no way you can get in and out of Buenos Aires without bumping into Carlos Gardel. Not in the flesh of course because he died in 1935 but through a song you hear on the radio, the humming of the man next to you in the colectivo, on a mural in a park somewhere or any other way people could think up to commemorate him.

    ‘Carlito’ is the king of tango and always will be according to everyone who has but a slight opinion about the subject; ‘his baritone voice embodies the true essence of tango and can never be surpassed’.

    Somebody at the AMAUTA Spanish School in Buenos Aires said something about a school trip involving Tango and therefore I registered to come along. Before coming to Buenos Aires I didn’t know much about him or tango in general so I had become very curious.

    Eva and Rikki Goldman, age 9 and 11
    Spanish class in Buenos Aires has been so much fun. All the teachers are really nice and patient and they like to play games with us. We did projects like writing a magazine, collages and interview the adult students, all in Spanish of course. The class is 4 hours long, but it goes by really fast. We did not know any Spanish at all when we got here and now we have learned all about verbs, animals, colors, fruits and animals. Muchas gracias AMAUTA!
