Buenos Aires: a great traveller article

He aquí un párrafo del hermoso artículo que hemos leído en The time machine

When I stopped by Buenos Aires for a few days ten years ago, I didn´t like it. I had come to South America for the exotic; for multiracial crowds speaking sexy languages (for me, Spanish isn´t), for weird jungle fruits and brightly colored birds, all of which Brazil delivered in abundance and Argentina manifestly did not. Buenos Aires doesnt really do “exotic”. But what it does, it does spectacularly well; the pleasure of watching life unfold in a vivacious city drowning in monuments to its past and haunted by an air of mystery.

If the past is another country, then Buenos Aires is a border crossing.

This time, with a better idea of what to expect, the city seduced me completely. It sucked me in with the beauty of its fountains and plazas, with the intense golden daylight that shines every day from morning until 9 at night. It romanced me with its sadness – all those bright hopes that came to nothing, and mistakes gone unmended (its no wonder BA is said to be the most psychoanalysed city in the world, with more shrinks than New York).  And it dazzled me its glamor and its trickery. BA is a brilliant illusionist. It still looks rich, still fabulolus. Its beauty hasnt faded, even if the good times have long since gone. Buenos Aires has gone from capital of the world´s fourth richest country (!!!) in 1910 to an economic basketcase, a city where bad times have become a way of life. And yet its not depressing, not at all. It is bewitchingly, perplexingly, alive; still waltzing away as ever, looking over its shoulder at its own reflection, and hoping the music will never stop.
