Buenos Aires, la Reina del Plata, the Queen of Silver – as the colloquial saying goes – a global metropolis with the same notoriety around the world as New York, Paris, or Jakarta. You say the name anywhere you are and everyone will know what you’re talking about. Whether they can envision the place, that’s another story. Standing tall at the mouth of the Rio de la Plata you find this beloved city. A long ferry ride across the river is Montevideo, the younger sister city of Buenos Aires. Much of its riches come from this large murky estuary that connects the grand Atlantic Ocean with the rest of South America. The river flows upward connecting Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, and Bolivia and was thought early on to reach the silver-rich country of Peru. Over the 500 years of post-Columbus and the Spaniards establishing trade routes from South America to Europe, Buenos Aires bloomed. A grand metropolis of old world and new. Gothic cathedrals, state houses, and mansions dot the city while the more recent development of glass skyscrapers and condos line the boulevards. But what do we think of when someone passing by mentions Buenos Aires – we think steak, tango – and although both are there embedded in its roots, the city is so much more. Together, we will explore.
