111 Places in
Buenos Aires That
You Must Not Miss
For centuries a great variety of immigrants and visitors have come to the Río de la Plata, making it one of the most diverse and contradictory cities in the world. Dictatorship and protest, wealth and crisis, street art and opera, shopping malls and autonomous groups: the capital of Argentina is a never-ending journey of historical and cultural discovery, much more than tango, football and beefsteak. A floating supermarket, a secret tunnel, a monument to Red Riding Hood and an emerging vegan subculture – Buenos Aires will surprise you 111 times over in this book.
Benjamin Haas, born in southern Germany, is a South America expert and lecturer. His studies focused on Argentinean history, politics, and urban culture. He now lives and works in Cologne, Germany. He completed his civilian service in Buenos Aires in 2005 and since then has repeatedly spent longer periods studying and working in the city.
Leonie Friedrich, born in Hamburg, Germany, lived in Buenos Aires as a volunteer for one year. Today she works as a private midwife in Bonn. Since their first visit, both she and Benjamin are fascinated by the city that lies next to the Río de la Plata, where they first met in 2008.
