The Early Years ....
Multiculturalism: My own Point of View, the early days:
Buenos Aires has become home, and all of South America as my back yard. I’m a true multi-cultural man. I was born in Argentina a long time ago now. My British Mom and my Italian-Argentine Dad had me and my brother traveling around the world, discovering amazing fantasy lands such as British Guyana and other Caribbean locations at a young age. After living only a couple of years in my native Argentina I have lived around the world, I’m Argentine by heart and British at the same time. If I had to choose I would breakfast in London, lunch at the Guyana and Dinner in Buenos Aires… May be that explains a lot of me… I also lived for many years in England. My teen years and a bit more I spent them at Mount St. Mary’s College in Spinkhill, a small town near Sheffield in the English Midlands. This Jesuit boarding school was my home; my classmates were my family and some of the finest memories date from those years… I also travelled in the Bahamas, and back in those days one of my friends’ had a small mansion by the sea side, where I spent several summers there, and once a group of 4 chaps, young, loud, and amazingly famous stayed there while touring and making a movie called, “Help” … their names were John, Paul, Ringo and George. Yes, The Beatles, so I also got to know them. It was the 70s and England was bursting with enthusiasm, creativity and wittiness. I’m happy to know I witnessed those amazing times. I have no doubt about the fact that those early experiences in my life have shaped my mind, my soul and my interests, that today I see taking shape and body in the broad cultural project I develop passionately every day. As Latin as I am, thanks to my Pop’s influence, I feel deeply passionate about art, style, culture… As a Brit as I have come to be, I feel English is my mother tongue, the borderless language that allows us individuals to transcend geographical borders and limits, the language of my thoughts and my chats… Thanks to my lifetime experiences I’ve become who I am, and along the way many of my projects, those that start in one’s mind and come to take shape along the road of life, began to be real and my input in this modern global world.
I’m a proud citizen of the world, who has chosen Buenos Aires to become home, and all of South America as my back yard.
Traveling is all about meeting people, going through different experiences, enjoying different cultures and discovering foreign and interesting sites.
I’ve traveled throughout the south of South America, and I truly believe that a great part of making a memorable experience out of a journey is meeting people, locals specially.
Getting to know the site through a local’s point of view is a wonderful experience, off the path outings… following the popular saying: “when in Rome, you do what Romans do”. That’s my leitmotiv when traveling.
I also adore my country. I’m a proud Argentinean who has discovered throughout the years the beauty and mysteries of this southern country. Hence I began sharing throughout forums and websites my experiences, tips on what to do when visiting our country. And as I kept on writing about the various customs of our culture I kept on discovering things –little treasures- that I thought were for granted. A great wine, an outstanding site within the city, my own refuge from the craziness of a cosmopolite city, an off the path antique fair… this has been a two way street experience, for at the same time I proudly share the beauties of my land, I have found myself discovering many new and interesting features too.
I even have met some great people through these forums, people who came to BA and met with me, with which we’ve had an amazing time and enjoyed a great conversation, a glass of outstanding Argentinean wine.
I’ve written about art & antiques, visiting the Patagonia or riding the train up to the Andes through the clouds, shopping and leisure in the city of Tango and of course, about the great pleasure Argentineans take on good eating. I’ve always focused on our most traditional dish, asado, for I’ve thought it was the most perfect way of getting into the Argentinean feel.
However I’ve recently discover, that Argentineans –alike many countries within the world who have been built hand in hand thanks to a great flow of immigration, are not all the same. We –as a nation- share our culture and language, but each and every one of us is unique. We each have a particular life’s history that has made us be what we are, and it’s important not to forget about that. To me, that particular part of myself is curry. Yes, food. Yes, Indian food, which I got into when I lived in London and in the British Guyana. My speciality is my Indian-British- Argentinean curry… Hmmm; Indian from origin, British for it’s were I picked it up, and Argentinean for non of these countries have the superb kind of meat we have down here in Argentina and that adds that special something to it.
This is my bonding meal, I cook it for my special people. It’s a ceremony which I find most amusing.Not to brag, but it’s the best curry in the country! I won’t say my secret for I’m an artist, and that would spoil the magic… You must come down here and experience it yourself.

Staying in Monserrat and San Telmo, a wonderful experience for the traveller who wants more… Monserrat and San Telmo is the top hip location in the city without exuding the “made for the tourist” feel some other places in the region might have. Bohemian, Artistic, Cultural, Amazing San Telmo is an expression of the novel Buenos Aires. This is the all friendly area for travellers par excellence, the artists’ place, the city with a plus; that’s why locals and visitors alike love this place. With a huge array of gourmet options mixed and matched with a broad variety of true local pubs, tango bars and cafes, Monserrat and San Telmo has what it takes. Just a stone throw away from any other major city site, San Telmo is indeed a perfect spot for the traveller who wants independence, freedom of movement at the time he or she wishes to capture the essence of “Portenos”, that’s what we are called. And while some prefer the traditional hotel option during their stay, we know that those travellers who travel following the lemma “When in Rome, do what Romans do”, rather prefer to stay at their own place and enjoy Argentina as an Argentine. If that is your case, we have this apartment Fully Furnished for RENT on Defensa Street, but first take a look at the surrounding areas ...
