Return to Buenos Aires

Three years to the month. And now in the final few days before returning to Buenos Aires.

This time, I will be living in Chacabuco, San Telmo. This is a fascinating, if edgy barrio, known as the heart of tango.

Here is Plaza Dorrego, the main tango square, and Defensa, the busy street market lined with cafes, restaurants and little shops.

And of course Mercado San Telmo full of stalls selling everything from raw meat and vegetables to antiques.

I will be arriving on Tuesday 16 March, and staying almost two months. Initially, I will be staying at El Sol de San Telmo, a tango guest house situated on the edge of the barrio.

So sign up to follow, and you will receive updates on my progress with life in the Capital Federal, with friends, and with tango.
