Buenos Aires, Argentina Day 2 – Tango Show Time

For today we planned attending a Tango show. We informed ourselves about all the different venues. Friends recommended us Señor Tango, the most outrageous of them all with lots of special effects. Many shows include dinner, or you can book the show only. Prices vary tremendously, depending on the venue and how you have booked. We prefer small places and ended up booking the show at El Viejo Almacen through the hotel concierge. We decided not to book dinner & show as the reviews for the dinner were no the best.

Buenos Aires, Argentina – Day 1

We arrived in Buenos Aires (EZE Airport) around midday. It took quite a while till we had our bags and then there was a huge line for customs. They have baggage scanners and also review the bags manually. They told us it’s mostly to check the Argentinians for electronic devices bought outside of Argentina. They didn’t bother checking us. Once you pass customs you will find a couple of booths of transportation companies. We were told by friends from Buenos Aires to refrain from using the taxis outside. The Manuel Tienda Leon Company is supposed to be the most trustable transportation company.
