Hey Ries,Back to the original question- my wife and I have a studio, and we make artworks. We also have a ton of friends we hang out with, go see a lot of live music (usually 3 or more nights a week) we go see museums and art shows, and explore the city constantly.
We actually spend some time maintaining our 100 plus year old apartment- I tend to do most things myself, except painting walls.. Plumbing, electrical, fixing the 100 year old stained glass- there is always something.
We cook a lot.
I am working on seeing all five railroad museums in greater buenos aires. 3 down- Retiro, Avellenada and Remedios de Escalada. I still need to get to Villa Lynch and the big Scalabrini one in Haedo. I recommend riding the little tranvia loop on Rivadavia, too, if you are at all a railfan.
I spend a fair amount of days going to lunch in a barrio I dont know, and wandering around, taking pictures.
I am a fan of architecture, and there are amazing buildings in pretty much every barrio. And I am a blacksmith, and the metalwork everywhere is world class- I have taken thousands of pictures, and even written about it for US blacksmithing publications.
I like what you are into!
There is a lot of satisfaction in DIY. (Save money as well and know the job was done correctly.) With all the resources out on the internet, there is someone with a how to video explaining what you need to or want to do.
Given you are into art ... the best art is cooking. EDIBLE ART!
