BA in 2005 was fun, relativly safe, lot´s of party and still cheap."Grazie" said:I am surprised that people who posted in 2005 have not replied much on their "matured" perspective on BA circa 2007.
I have heard people long of years past and bygone years - and I was just wondering what I missed in 2005 as an expat in BA, that was why I was asking.
Like what do you like to do?"VMSmith" said:In 2005 it was fun to go tango dancing. Now so many of the milongas are so freaking overrun with foreigners and expats, you might as well be dancing in St. Louis or London. It's kind of hypocritical of me to say that, since I am an expat who likes (or liked) to go to the milongas, and hence I am part of the problem. Nonetheless, that is something about BA that has changed in my eyes...it is no longer so much fun to go tango dancing here.
(On the other hand, the downslide of the milongas has induced me to go out and find other interesting things to do at night, and some of what I've found is pretty cool and to some extent compensates for not going to milongas so much these days.)
