For 91 Days in Buenos Aires

Adventures, anecdotes and advice from three months exploring Buenos Aires

For 91 Days we lived in Buenos Aires. The capital of Argentina, and the home of tango, this is one of the world’s most vibrant cities, and we had an incredible time getting to know its culture, cuisine and people.

After making sure I got the picture, I found out that the hooded guy was just an art student working on a project. Phew.
