¡Estamos viajando a Argentina!
Mi esposo y yo planeamos viajar a Buenos Aires, Argentina. Buenos
Aires es la capital y es allí donde queremos ir por una semana.
Las estaciones son opuestas de Los Estados Unidos, entonces va a ser
verano cuando vamos. Queremos ir a finales de febrero y a principios
de marzo porque el festival del tango es en esa fecha. Va a hacer calor.
Estamos llevando nuestra ropa del verano: unas camisas y camisetas,
bluyíns y pantalones cortos, tenis, lentes del sol, y un par de zapatos de
tacón. (¡Porque quiero aprender a bailar el tango!). Si necesitamos más
ropa, compramos en Buenos Aires, porque es una gran ciudad para
hacer compras.
El vuelo va a
salir a las siete
y cuarto de la
noche el 25 de
febrero.
Vamos a
regresar el 4
de marzo.
Estamos durmiendo en un hostal, “América del Sur”. Este hostal tiene 5
estrellas, probablemente. El hostal es cerca del corazón de la ciudad, de
Plaza de Mayo y el Obelisco . Por 7 noches, la cuesta está solamente
$266.48 USD!
Mi esposo y yo gusta tomar vino y planeamos hacer mucho! Nos gusta
bailar y queremos tomar lecciones de baila el tango. Vamos a visitar unos
museos, y queremos ir a Iguazu Falls, pero está muy lejos de Buenos Aires
(20 horas en carro). Los deportes no nos gustan, y nosotros no vamos a
mirar fútbol.
Argentina
está debajo
de Bolivia y
Paraguay.
Argentina
está a la
derecha de
Chile y a la
izquierda
de Uruguay
¡Es distinta!
El gente de la ciudad de Buenos Aires son "porteños", y todos
de ellos toman Mate. Mate is a drink made from herbs steeped
in water and it has its own etiquette and tradition around how
it is prepared and served.
Argentina is famous for steak, leather, wine, Iguazú falls, Tierra del Fuego, the tango
and fugitive war criminals.
Although the official national sport of
Argentina is Pato (which is a
combination of polo and basketball),
fútbol is the most popular sport.
The Iguazú Falls of
Argentina are higher than
the Niagara Falls.
Argentina is one
of the world’s
largest
producers of
wine, and has
been since the
16th century.
The oldest known dinosaur
species have been traced back to
Argentina and are exhibited at
the Argentine National Historical
Museum.
Argentina boasts the
highest number of
psychiatrists per capita
than anywhere else on
earth (145 per 100,000
residents)!
Argentina was the
first place to use
fingerprinting in
forensic investigation.
Argentina means "land of silver".
1880-1929 is known as the
"golden time", when Argentina
emerged as one of the 10 richest
cities in the world. In the 70’s the
military took over the government
and the “dirty wars” started, and
thousands of young people
‘disappeared’. The mothers of the
disappeared still protest in the
Capital every week.
Argentine women
undergo the highest
number of plastic
surgeries in the world,
per capita.
The typical local food is STEAK,
STEAK, STEAK! Argentinians are
proud of their beef and they have
some of the best in the world.
Parrillas, asada, anything you can
dream up. And it is delicious.
¡Qué estraño!
The Spanish of Buenos Aires is a
little different, owing to the many
Italians that immigrated to
Argentina long ago. They have their
own city slang, called "Lunfardo",
where often the words are
pronounced backward (by switching
the order of the syllables).
Some
examples:
feca= café,
jermu=
mujer, rioba=
barrio, lleca=
calle.
Also, the pronunciation of the
"ll" in Argentina is not like a
Spanish "y", but rather it
makes a "shh" sound. So
"millón" would sound like
"mishon", "llueve" like
"shueve", etc.
