Lighthouse Punta Medanos Argentina, South America
Topic: Lighthouse Tour
Punta Medanos lighthouse
The Punta Medanos lighthouse is located in the province of Buenos Aires coastline between Mar de Ajó and Pinamar. The coast in this area is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean that has blended up a bit with the Rio de la Plata. The imponent lighthouse marks the end of the Cabo de San Antonio, where there had been countless shipwrecks before the building of the light tower. This cape side area was first discovered by Magallanes in 1520, during one of his many explorative expeditions through the Argentinean coast down to Tierra del Fuego. Ever since there have been countless ghosts stories around each and every shipwreck. The wide coast, the beautiful sand mountains, the everlasting green countryside have made of this place a fairy tale scenario. Email: Bob Frassinetti. Art Dealer & Journalist. This is a very special and cherished construction. It was built in France and transported and settled in Argentina between 1892-93. The main body of the building is a cylinder. One can access the light room walking up the 298 steps. The lighthouse is located 36°53’ south 56°40’48’’ W, six miles north from Punta Médanos and 500 meters from the high tide line. Though the walk is long, the view is rewarding for it opens up in front of us a painting like view of an endless deep blue ocean and a crystal sky.

The Old Patagonia Express La Trochita by Bob Frassinetti
Topic: Train Travel Argentina

Train Tours in Argentina. Steam Engine from 1922 known as The Old Patagonia Express La Trochita by Bob Frassinetti

 

An image is worth more than a thousand words… The Old Patagonia Express La Trochita by Bob Frassinetti

 

Steam Engine Train.

 

This is the story of an amazing journey thru the South of the South. In and around the Patagonia of Argentina and Chile, the Big Island of Chiloe and the famous Route 40 we’ve discovered and documented these wonderful journeys.

 

This time we’ve head south to travel in one of the World’s Oldest Working trains: La Trochita. This Steam Engine Train that dates back from 1922, and runs thru the Argentine Patagonian Lands.

 

It has been a lifetime journey, and I thought I’d document it since it’s quite an experience. Taking upon the challenge of the new technologies our world has to offer at this moment I created this short video with the aid of my PC Sony Ericson iP990, quite an accomplishment considering it's seize. It’s been filmed “al natural”, in real time, hand cam and the beauty of nature to delight us…

T

he music is by Julian Rodriguez a talented young Musician who recently graduated from

CAEMSA Center of High Musical Studies which is linked to the famous Berklee College of Music in academic terms. Julian specially created the music to suit this short documentary.

Discovering the Southern Nature

 

Frassinetti.biz is a broad cultural project that aims to revalue Argentina’s history, culture and natural assets from a global point of view. Throughout the last years we’ve been traveling thru Argentina and documenting our experiences in order to share our perspective to the world.

 

We’ve developed photo documentaries on Lighthouses, Route 40, and Patagonia so far. Thanks to our specialized insight, we’ve been able to assist collectors and intrepid travelers to plan their trips with valuable insiders tips and one of a kind experiences off the tourist path.

Art and Music at Night for Buenos Aires, Argentina

Murga at night in Buenos Aires.

 

The Uruguayan carnival is a popular celebration par excellence and one of the longest ones too. Lasting for 40 days and nights, the Uruguayan carnival is the country’s most important public spectacle, selling more tickets than all the other shows together including football matches –the most important sport in the country.

 

See Video Clip for Art and Music: Murga in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Please let video up load it can take several minutes depending on your connection.

 

The murga uruguaya has its root back in the days of the colony, together with the religion and culture, the Spaniards brought their customs and traditions, and Carnival was one of them. Back in the early days of the colony the black slaves of Monetivedo were allowed to go out in Carnival, New Years and Christmas, and they all gathered together in the city’s walls were they sang and danced all night long. Since this was a time of disguise the slaves dressed in colorful tunics and outfits, sometimes emulating those suits worn by their owners but as a prank.   

As time went by and the colony became an independent nation, some traditions prevailed and were re-signified with the aid of time and new cultures, but carnival remained in the popular culture, growing, developing and expanding. Unlike other carnivals in the world, the Uruguayan carnival is not a parade, but a great festival in an open air theatre, in which the Uruguayan murgas play a central role, performing live and competing for the best show award. The murga uruguaya combines like the argentine one music and art theatrical performances, but differently from the Argentine the Uruguayan is a large group of 15 singers who all perform and sing, in disguise, and the key element are the lyrics and music of this choirs like social and political statements. The difference is that the Uruguayan is more theatrical, and the argentine more parade like especially because this last one includes dance –which the other doesn’t-. The Argentine murga is more of a mixture between the Uruguayan murga and the Uruguayan candombe –which is a form of public art performance, where the key are the music generated by a large band of African drums of all sizes and kinds that make music and they go playing throughout the streets of the cities and neighbors, passers by and curious people go following them, dancing accordingly to the sound of the drums-. The argentine murga as we explained had the street art like feel and dance, which it shares with the Candombe of Uruguay, but it is much more theatrical and musically developed with singers, drummers, whistles, and plates, tambourines…

Therefore the Uruguayan carnival, murga and Candome, share with the Argentine version of the carnival some ground foundations, but the evolutions and forms of each one are extremely different. We can say that the Uruguayan carnival is much more theatrical including the murga performance but also humorists, singers, dancers and several other performers.
