Each travel bears a lesson for me. These two months in Buenos Aires taught me the importance of culture and arts. I discovered a city filled with theaters, librairies, museums, cultural centers and art galleries. On every street, buildings are standing as a sequence of different shapes, textures and materials defining one decade to another. Through every neighbourhood, the ecclectic architecture reminds us of France, Spain or Italy.
In the markets, you will get propelled in the middle of the Argentinian world of traditional craft. The porteños and porteñas are, rightly so, proud of their European and gaucho roots. The leather, wood and silver's work reflects the deep heritage.
Argentinians take a lot of pride in art, gifting the world with chefs-d'oeuvre in cinema, theater, music, litterature, etc. This trip opened my eyes on the importance of art as the food for the brain and the soul. In its own way, through sounds, words, or images, art vibrates your soul and wakes your senses. Sometimes an artwork or a piece of music seems ecclectic and chaotic, but that becomes its beauty and strength. To work, it doesn't have to be perfect.
