While studying Latin American studies I spent a summer in Buenos Aires and absolutely fell in love with the city. A daily bus ticket provided a really cheap and exciting way to discover the area; I just stayed in the bus until we arrived at the final stop, where I descended, went for a walk and later took the bus back home. And let me tell you -all the clichés about Buenos Aires are true*: Architecturally it is the Paris of Latin America, everyone speaks as fast as the Italians, prices change on a daily basis and people spontaneously start dancing the tango on the street. I especially loved Buenos Aires' night life, which was really relaxed with whole families having dinner between 10pm and midnight.
Sadly I have no material memories left. An hour before flying home my luggage was stolen – Gone not only the scarlet vintage velvet dress and beautiful old watch I’d bought, but also my camera… You see why I had to recreate some Argentine flair at home.
Now how did I get from Baptiste to my stolen luggage? The mind it wanders...
