La feria de Mataderos

The Sunday Fiesta, or feria that is held in the Buenos aires neighbourhood of Mataderos, right at the edge of the city would normally be considered a tourist trap attraction and as thaw would not be worthy of my attention.

But having gone there once to check it out, I can say that in spite of having the usual kiosks that you can find in any "Feria" in Argentina, this event still has a lot of the authentic Gaucho attractions you can find in the pampas.

without leaving the big city, you´ll get a taste of the typical Argentine folklore. the Feria works on Saturdays and Sundays and has its own web site.

Ten top pizza joints in Buenos Aires - Runner ups - Cosi mi piace - Palermo

In the runner up category for the best pizza joints in BA. today I bring you "Cosi mi piace" located at El Salvador 4618 in Palermo.

This joint specialises in Roman style pizza and is in the runner ups, not because it is´nt good,but because it is not Argie style pizza. The pizza here is quite good, but the prices sre´nt that cheap.

Its ambiance is a hybrid trendy with roman pizzeria, that´s why you will find better wines and beers that your average Bunos Aires pizzeria, that serves mostly moscato wine.

At the "Fiesta Peruna" downtown Buenos Aires

Last Sunday I attended the "Fiesta Peruana in Buenos Aires", smack downtown at the Diagonal Norte.

This yearly event will surely bring you back to past trips to Machu Pichu or other Peruvian cities. Hosted by the huge Peruvian community in Buenos Aires, it shows many aspects of the Andean culture.

It was majorly packed with people, there were dozens of kiosks offering foods from different Peruvian regions or provinces, as well as trinkets of all sorts.

Ten top beer joints in Buenos Aires - Shanhay Dragon - Palermo

The Shanghai dragon located at Araoz 1199 in Palermo is one of three themed pubs along with The Bangalore and Gibraltar that are owned by the same person.

In all of them you will find Asian, Indian and English food done in a mild Argentine style, not the real mackoy but as oriental as you will find in Buenos Aires.

In all the beer selection is alright and its location and cosy ambiance qualifies it as a place to hang out and unwind.

WWG - Buenos Aires - Teatro Colon guided tour

The Colon Theatre in Buenos Aires is considered an obligatory stop for anyone who is in the opera business, be it for its acoustics or for its dimensions.

Besides attending any of the great performances that are presented there you might like to do the guided tour.

It takes you through all the renovated areas but does not go down to the Colon´s renowned workshops. Still it lasts an hour allowing you time to take pis and contemplate. the ticket will cost you around 15$ and it is worth wile going.

I love this Lady Clowns costume, saw her on the streets of Buenos Aires, close to the oblisk, part of some sort of kiddie festival organized by the city for the winter break.
