"Corrientes" Avenida Corrientes Tip by andal13

Avenida Corrientes, Buenos Aires: 9 reviews and 11 photos

by andal13

"Corrientes tres cuatro ocho,
segundo piso, ascensor;
no hay porteros ni vecinos
adentro, cocktel y amor..."

"Corrientes three four eight
second floor, lift,
there is neither doorman nor neighbours ,
inside, cocktail and love..."

This is the begining of tango "A media luz" ("half light"), composed by Carlos Lenzi and Edgardo Donato; Corrientes avenue is probably the most famous one in Buenos Aires. Long, wide, bustling, busy, full of cars and people all day long... The most important theatres are situated along Corrientes, so this avenue is as lively during the night as it is during the daylight.

Este es el comienzo del tango "A media luz", compuesto por Carlos Lenzi y Edgardo Donato; la avenida Corrientes es probablemente la más famosa de Buenos Aires. Larga, amplia, bulliciosa, ajetreada, llena de autos y de gente todo el día... Los teatros más importantes están situados a lo largo de Corrientes, por lo que la avenida est? tan animada de noche como de día.
