      Tango Partner Needed

      Buenos Aires May 8, 2015 at 3:45 AM

      I'm a middle aged female traveling solo at the end of next month and into the first week of July. I'd like to take classes to meet other advanced beginners and I'd, also like to take private lessons to hone the subtleties of the dance. Can I get info ahead of time so I can make the arrangements/ plans? It seems it would help me select the right section of the city to book accommodations. I'd also like to hire a dance partner so I can dance at milongos. From my reading, it sounds like locals normally dance only with locals. Thank you for your help!
      Truly,
      Shari

      where to stay

      Buenos Aires 17 hours ago

      I'm a single, American female traveling solo to learn tango in Buenos Aires. I plan to go to milangos which means I'll be staying out late at night. I'm not sure about which salons I'll be going to, so I'm not sure which sections of the city I should look for lodging that would be safe to travel to and from late at night. I welcome any suggestions. Thank you!

      Safety around the country

      Argentina May 2, 2015 at 7:25 AM

      Hi all,
      after 5 years I'm about to go back to the gorgeous Argentina. I understand the economic crisis led to an increased level of crimes especially in B. Aires so I guess I'll use "extra" common sense going around the city. I'm wondering how the situation is around the country, specifically in the north and during bus night trip. Five years ago I travel the whole Patagonia by bus and never had even a single moment I feelt unsafe... In B. Aires last time I stayed in Palermo and honestly I had no big issues going around the city by myself.
      Thanks for any advice!
      Roberto

      Hire a tango instructor

      Buenos Aires May 9, 2015 at 9:48 AM

      Is it possible to hire an English speaking tango teacher for private lessons/ classes that I can schedule ahead of a visit to Buenos Aires? From my reading on the tango scene, it sounds like foreigners aren't taken into the fold as dance partners, so I'd have to take classes to get to know potential other foreigners to dance with if I want to dance at milangos. Is this an accurate assessment? I'm trying to weigh the value of traveling or not to BA for the purpose of really learning to dance tango.
      Thanks so much!

    • Need help planning a budget trip with lots of bang

      by sharirlwillis Online Now Jul 15, 2004 at 10:50 PM

      Tierra del Fuego: Need help planning a budget trip with lots of bang Fri July 16 00:44:54 2004 CDT Q: I am planning a trip to Argentina in late Sept, early Oct 2004 and will be doing so on a budget. I likely will fly in from Kansas to Miami, and then from Miami to BA. I love adventure and exploration and want to spend most of my time seeing all of the things we don't have in Kansas! (Which leaves things wide open, I suppose). I would really like to see the wildlife at Peninsula Valdes, the glaciers at Los Glaciares and also want to visit Tierra del Fuego. Snowboarding in the Andes would also be a real plus. I can probably take off 11 to 12 days for the entire trip. I will be on a tight budget (I can't spend any more that1500 per person, or3000 for the two of us) and certainly don't require fancy accomodations or anything. In fact, I thought it might be fun to stay at a bed and breakfast or two. So, here are my questions: 1. Timewise, is this at all possible? 2. Moneywise, is this at all possible? 3. How much time should I allot for each location? 4. How, considering my budget and time, should I travel from one location to the next? Plane? Car? Bus? And, can you specify any particular companies I should use? 5. Should I be using a travel agent, and if so do you have any suggestions? 6. Am I forgetting anything super important? Thanks in advance for you input. If you want to email me directly, you can do so at swillis@bjhlaw.com Shari
