Last week, I was in Buenos Aires, Argentina on a meetup with my coworkers at WordPress.com. We stayed in San Telmo, not far from the river and smack dab in the middle of the weekend antique market. Coming from a seemingly never-ending winter in New Jersey, the end-of-summer weather in Argentina was such a welcome relief.
A few of us went to El Querandí, a tango show, that went through the historical evolution of tango through the performance itself. It was neat to see how the styles, as well as the role of tango in culture and society, changed over time. However, one of my favorite parts of the trip was the boat ride we took up the Paraná. Despite thinking of myself as a “city person,” time spent outside of the city always seems to be the most memorable for me.
