Most outsiders only know the country in Hollywood clips, blips, and larger-than-life personas, from Evita (as played by Madonna) to the incredible soccer greats like Diego Maradona and Leonel Messi. And let us not forget the Pope is Argentine. Buenos Aires’ most famous cultural export is tango, the song and dance filled with passion, sensuality, longing, and nostalgia that does so much to explain the essence and character, culture, and creativity of Buenos Aires.
Wherever you are in the city, what is certain is that something is happening. Buenos Aires deserves a nickname like “the city that never sleeps,” as it is alive with activity at all hours of the day, every day. Those looking for a culturally rich city will feel inspired and fulfilled in Buenos Aires. While it is lively and abuzz with activity, the Buenos Aires lifestyle also encourages people to slow down and smell the roses. Flexibility, resilience, and openness are key to making any big move abroad, especially to Buenos Aires.
