Buenos Aires + Info

La ciudad de Buenos Aires es la capital de la Republica Argentina, esta ubicada en el hemisferio sur del continente americano, latitud 34º 36' y longitud 58º 26'. La ciudad tiene una superficie de 202 km cuadrados donde vivimos aproximadamente 3 millones de personas. Sumando la poblacion del area metropolitana, la poblacion total supera los 12 millones de habitantes, lo que la convierte en uno de los 10 centros urbanos mas poblados del mundo.
El Rio de la Plata y el Riachuelo son sus limites naturales hacia el este y el sur. La avenida de circunvalacion General Paz, que bordea la ciudad de norte a oeste, completa el limite de la ciudad. Esta avenida enlaza de manera rapida la capital con el Gran Buenos Aires, una franja de alta concentracion de habitantes y fuerte actividad. (Donde yo trabajo, dicho de paso).

Puerto Madero

Puerto Madero es un nuevo barrio lleno de bares y restaurantes. No es mi favorito porque en mi opinion es muy turistico y los precios son mas altos que lo normal. Pero es muy lindo caminar por ahi en un dia de sol, la vista es realmente linda.

Puerto Madero is a new neighbourhood full of restaurantes and bars. It's not my favourite, cause it's too touristic in my opinion, and prices are higher than they should... It's nice to walk there in a sunny day though, the view is pretty nice.
