For this gringo, Buenos Aires was a city of highs and lows. It is fun, colourful, gritty and a little chaotic. And in the middle of February it is very, very hot. In 2 weeks we saw people dancing in the street, experienced 5 extended power blackouts (and saw locals lighting fires on major thoroughfares in protest), searched for street art on every corner, went swimming in a giant pool with one thousand Portenos*, sampled plenty of local delicacies and trekked from one end of the city to the other.
**Porteno = a person from Buenos Aires
