I think I had left my heart in Buenos Aires, so I'm back here after only a few weeks back home in Norway.

Maybe also all the pulsating cultural life in this marvelous city affected my compass so that I can serve you some of the really worth-to-see findings. 

Take Mondays, there’s a percussion show called La Bomba de Tiempo. This takes place in the Konex Cultural Center and starts at 8 p.m. 


Follow up on Tuesdays, there’s a language exchange at The Temple Bar, Marcelo T De Alvear 945. It starts at 9 p.m and it’s a great chance you’ll get to know people of all ages from all over the world - fun to practice languages this way!  


Don’t forget Wednesdays, the same language exchange as Thuesdays but it takes place at a different place, the Soria Bar, located in Gorriti 5151. 9 p.m.! 

Thursday is time for afterthought: every Thursday and since April 1977, «Las abuelas» have been gathering at Plaza de Mayo at 3:30 p.m. Absolutlely something you can’t miss! 


On Fridays the language exchange is in beautiful Palermo at Trova Bar, Honduras 5903, Palermo at 9 p.m. 

Every Saturday, you can visit the Recoleta area and participate in the many cultural activities and live concerts in the area:


On Sundays the Feria de San Telmo takes place in the San Telmo neighborhood. Locals are selling gorgeous treasures and the atmosphere is something you can’t miss! 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
