    I will help you to know better the city... mainly places or events that aren't in the touristic brochures.
    Also you will learn many tips and tricks to improve your handy(wo)man capability (many guests call me "Mc Giver" ;-).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Buenos Aires urban area holds more than 150 cinemas and theaters, many art centers, all kind of museums, in summer many open air free shows... The city is so big that any trip in the very good public transportation net takes at least half an hour. To cross the city takes more 2 hours.
    The house is a residential area not far from downtown, with 2 subway and 12 bus lines around. (most buses runs all night in BA). A good, quiet and safe location. There is a very huge park with a cultural center at 3 blocks.
