San Telmo

San Telmo - where I rent my apartement -  is the oldest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires - the very first colony was settled here. Old casas are still standing, time looks being stopped. The district is lucky: untill now, real estate developers keept them theirselves away from the area, however, it is getting more and more popular.
This barrio is most known about its market fair, as well as the place where from tango origines. (La Boca and either Montevideo would disagree.) La Defensa street gives place for the Sunday art market - artists and craftmen sell their products all along the street. Here I met Telma, who also sale her fine, hand made cotton items on ETSY. I had ordered a tunic from her and she remembered me, since I was her only customer from Hungary! You can see her smiling in one of the posted pictures here!
Also many upcoming designer's shops, cafés, tango hostels, bars can be found here in the colonial streets.

Buenos Aires I.

I am back from my dear Buenos Aires. I spent ther 3 weeks - well, it is not really true, as I visited  Tigre, Mendoza and Santiago de Chile.
I really felt in love with the city, I cannot wait to see again. In Buenos Aires, my usual day looked like this: waking up around 11 a.m., then I went to a café to have my regular café con leche con media lunas, than I visited some of the main attractions. My daily route was usually decided at the café table! Than I returned to my appartement, had some rest and went to a milonga (tango bar, often with classes before), or see other fun, such as opera, tango show, or  - in Santiago - visit my primary school friend (her family fled from the junta in 1973 to Hungary).
I travelled totally alone, just for the first three days I availed a Hungarian guide living in Argentina. This time I clarified some question, and I strengtheened my personality and my feminity. I think, I'll never be the same after this trip. I misss South-Amerika so much and waiting for the return (planned for next year).
Bad news, that the first morning I got my job termination. Now I should find something quickly in order to menage to execute my plan. I decided to learn Spannish and I'll enthusiasticaly visit tango facilities in Budapest.
Now I publish some pictures. I rent a stylish apartemement in San Telmo district - the oldest part of this amazing city, full of colonial buidings, bars, milonga places - I took many shots, so I'll show you them quite seperately!
From Buenos Aires with love!
