BUENOS AIRES, the big great city 

 

Visiting the busy town of Buenos Aires is feeling the pulsing movement of European cities, with positive and negative similarities,  accompanied by first and third world features,  strangely blended in a complicated mix of a multicultural population.  On general terms, Buenos Aires is just like any other big,  modern city  inhabited by lively,  warm and friendly people.  The city of  Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and Argentina┤s largest city, often called the Paris of the America┤s.    It is located on the northeastern river side,   overlooking the Rio de la Plata. Its climate is mostly mild, but humid,  with hot summers.   January is usually summer┤s hottest month (lately December, February and March too) with daily temperatures ranging between 27 and 32 (winter temperatures vary  between 4║C and 15).   January and February are generally "summer months",    not much happening in town;  although  globalization is now compelling many to stay at home,  or nearer home,  due either to squeezing budgets,   fear of loosing jobs or a need of closer control.  Most active  months are  March through November;     October and November hectic with   seminars, congresses and exhibitions, so hotel accommodations  might be difficult to get.   Plan your stay in advance if coming these months.   December is a month of school ending exams,  preparation for festivities, summer and holidays.
