10. La Bamba at the Konex is an incredible musical experience.

9. Parillas are delicious, though my advice is to avoid the blood sausage.

8. Breast-feeding openly in public is as common as Starbucks.

7. Iguazu Falls is a must-see, but if your sunnies happen to fall over the railing of the walkway, leave them there.

6. The cities are clean and the tree-lined streets and amazing architecture make them so picturesque.

5. Tear-gassing in Buenos Aires is a weekly occurrence. If you see it being sprayed, move quickly in the opposite direction, don’t film it.

4. Cab drivers are crazy – be fully prepared to be within an inch of your life with every ride.

3. Mr. Hugo is a beauty, rent his bikes and try his moonshine.

2. The different neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires are each so wonderfully unique and at least one full day spent in each one is necessary.

    Nice top ten! my only hope is that Starbucks is not commonplace in Argentina! haha I don’t think there were any in ’07 and I remember thinking that Argentines would be appalled by our huge North American-sized servings of coffee. One thing I do remember is that many women there do not buy maternity clothes when pregnant… lots of exposed bun in the ovens everywhere I looked!
    Glad you had a great time and loved BA!!
