    This is the perfect opportunity to know all about design in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, I went last year to this amazing show and it was something unique. There is an artistic atmosphere around the city that brings joy to all the people. I have the chance to meet some of the artist who exhibited their works, and they told me how important it was to exhibit at this event.

    I finished my week with a beautiful tango show that an Argentine friend recommended me. It was an outstanding Tango Dinner Show at Esquina Carlos Gardel that I book trough bsas4u and that allowed me to know more about Buenos Aires culture and traditions.
