#day166 – meeting a Bärliner abroad

To be honest, it’s not the first Bärliner I met abroad. When I was in Rio de Janeiro in 2014 for the world cup, I saw a whole exhibition about the Berlin bear at Copacabana beach. Round about 30 bears, each of it represented a country from all over the world. But yes, today I […]

#day165 – German novel about Buenos Aires

Hilarious, I always wanted to read a book of Tommy Jaud. When I found his second bestseller “Resturlaub” (something like residual leave) in the bookshelf in our apartment, I thought that might be my chance now. I didn’t know, the novel happens in Buenos Aires. The summary sounded more than promising: Peter Greulich, 37 years, working for […]

#day164 – Hollywood’s best rooftop pool

What a nice coincidence. Spending the afternoon before Oscars night by a rooftop pool in Hollywood. Well, it was in Palermo Hollywood. In Buenos Aires. Not in California. But the luxury pool and the view over the entire city on the 21st floor made me feel I’m in Hollywood. A well deserved afternoon as I think. […]

#day163 – Argentinian carnival corso

I had quite an intense research to figure out, where all the carnival magic happens here. When you’re asking around, everyone says there are some street corsos with music, costumes and that stuff but it’s not a big thing. It seems most locals give a shit about carnival here. They’re just happy to have two […]

#day162 – Spanish love letter

I received a wonderful gift today. A necklace with a little key along with a letter full of wise words. Wonderful lines in Spanish, my new favorite language. Dedicated to me, but relevant for all of us, that’s why I want to share it with you. I try to translate it as good as possible, but […]

#day161 – malba museum

I have to see at least one museum from the inside during my 5 weeks in Buenos Aires. Museums are usally not my first option for freetime activities. A free event in one of the best art museums here was my chance to turn purposes into reality and so I motivated some friends and went […]

#day160 – buenavista mini brewery

What a hidden gem just in the next street over mine. A little stall, opened during the night only, where you can grab a craft beer to sip it on the street with your friends. Not a real bar, just a counter without seats and tables. A growler station. A place where you can have a craft beer […]

#day159 – el caminito stroll

I had other plans for today. Weather was perfect for a Little pool action. But have you ever tried to find a public outdoor pool in Buenos Aires? Insane. I went to several hotels and parks, which pretend to have a pool. Either it was such an ugly pool (in a 4 star hotel!) that […]

#day158 – crossing women bridge

Am I in Hamburg’s Hafencity? Oh no, I’m in Puerto Madero. Crazy how similar those two districts are.  Both are quite commercial areas. Red brick houses, well-maintained parks, special bridges, sailing ships for the rich and maaany office buildings. No district for living, but for sure a nice area to have a walk and enjoy the […]

#day157 – queuing for the bus

Seeing people in line for the bus is indeed a bit funny for me. My first days in town I was all the time wondering when I saw people in line on the street. For what are they queuing? After I realized they are waiting for the bus I didn’t understand the need to build a line. Someone […]
