The Dutch in Argentina
Topic: People and Communities
Argentina and its little Holland We always emphasize on the fact that Argentina is a melting pot society, that our nation is the result of an interesting combination of a broad variety of cultures and idiosyncrasies. And though it’s always strengthen the fact that Italians and Spaniards were the ground foundation of the immigrant flow, there are also other strong cultures that should be highlighted. Just a couple of years ago, in Argentina no-one thought of a tied relationship with the Netherlands in terms of historical background. Once one of our citizens fell in love with Prince Willem Alexander, we began to look a little further into our culture and history. And it has been a pleasant surprise to discover a long history of bonds and influences. The case of the town of Tres Arroyos (Three Streams) in the province of Buenos Aires, only 500 km away from the city of BA is a living proof of this. This town beholds the largest community of Dutch-Argentines in the country. The story begins in 1889, when a terrible hunger struck Europe and forced millions out of their homelands. Argentina was ready and opened its doors –figuratively- to all of them in need of land and work. Today, 117 years later, Queen Beatriz of Holland, Prince William and Maxima, his wife Princess have come on official visit to strengthen those long established bonds. These Dutch Argentines are a true example of syncretism and a global world that has been global even before we began to refer to it as such. They brought their own culture, their religion and their way of life and sustain. Shared their knowledge and life experience with those who welcomed them openhearted, and today, they cherish their history because they have two motherlands. The first 50 families who shipped off the port of Amsterdam arrived to Buenos Aires onboard of the Leerdam Steam Ship. Their first home was the Immigrants hotel on Arroyo St. today the breathtaking Sofitel Hotel [1]. They then head off to Tres Arroyos, and its everlasting rich fields. Ziljstra, Banninga, Wilgenhoff, Van der Molen, Van der Ploeg, Blom, De Vries, Hemkes, Cansen are just of the many pioneer families who started from scratch and ended up building a loving and proud bi-national community. We’re all so proud of. The Argentine Dutch Association is an independent institution created back in the early 1920s. In spite of the fact that there is no true and original Dutch restaurants in Buenos Aires or other European cuisine restaurants serving Dutch traditional cuisine, there’s indeed a monthly event at the Van Joning bar in Las Canitas Buenos Aires, at Baez 325, were you can enjoy a traditional Netherlands like happy hour and celebrate three of the most important national Dutch holidays: Queen day on April 30th, Laeiden Liberation or Herring fest on October 4th and Saint Nicolas celebration on December 5th. [1]For further detail, check our history on that famous building.Topic: Buildings & Bridges in Argetina.



The famous Arroyo St. Undertaking a personality problem. It was not many days ago that a Buenos Aires city deputy proposed to change the name of the famous art gallery and antique shop street, from Arroyo to John Paul 2nd. A huge debate arose ever since the proposal went public. For once, this is a traditional street that's become thru means of time and its own cultural feel a trademark of our city, our arts and style. Notwithstanding the importance of the recently gone Pope, his doings have much more to do with a personal decision and religious practice; not very much to do with what Arroyo stands for in our cultural history. While it really doesn't make sense to rise to a debate about being in favour or against the name itself, our question regarding this matter stands on the fact that we do not see the need of this change. Specially due to the fact that there's nothing wrong with the current denomination. For more information: Email: Bob Frassinetti.

Italian influence in our history
Topic: People and Communities
Italian community in Argentina

A broad motherland: some thoughts on the Mediterranean America district for Italian elections

The fact that Italy is bigger than the boot-shaped country is no mystery. During the late decades of the 19th century, when the world’s population was growing at unparalleled rates and distances narrowed thanks to the aid of technology and technical advances, Italians from all over their country chose (by will or necessity) to leave their hometowns and head overseas seeking a new and improved life. Two of the most well known and documented traces of that immense immigration were the route to the United States of America and the route to Argentina. While these were not the only countries welcoming Italian newcomers, these are -no doubt about it- the ones who received the highest number of immigrants. The Italian influx on their cultures is unquestionable, food, style, music… the list could go on and on… With their bared hands those immigrants worked in the line of making of those new countries huge nations.

The cultural melting pot that is Argentina has a lot to do with the strong traditions brought by the countless immigrants from around the globe. One important feature to examine in the Argentine case is the language. For Buenos Aires was the main port thru which the immigrants arrived to the country, it’s there were they most settled and, hence, were we can find the strongest influences. Even more, a thorough research project held by the National Committee of Science and Technology, directed by Jorge Gurlekian that can be read thoroughly in the scientific publication “Bilingualism: language and cognition”, came to the conclusion that the Spanish spoken in Buenos Aires has a strong Napolitano tone as the result of a major cultural influx that took place early in the 20th century. The Naples region played a big role in that flow. According to the specialists before those heavy immigration years, the main tone and Spanish spoken in the region was that of Andalusia in southern Spain. Regardless the pass of time and other cultural influences, our language style did not change afterwards…

These interesting cultural impacts show not only the Italian influence in our history, but also, , regardless the fact they loved, cherished and contributed to the development of our nation, how Italians were still Italians living in Argentina, their love for their motherland and tongue is today a culturally alive proof. That’s why is so important and interesting the fact that over a century after those events took place, the Italian government recognizes the political, cultural and social importance of those Italians living in overseas locations, as they include them in the political life of their motherland.

Four jurisdictions were settled for the upcoming elections:

1) Europe
2) Southern America
3) Northern and Central America
4) Africa, Asia, Oceania and Antarctic

Argentina is part of the second electoral district overseas, and a one of the toughest regions, that’s why there are already several politicians working out strong campaigns and talks throughout the country. The Union party –strongest opposition to Berlusconi’s government in the Parliament- where Prodi and Di Pietro are two main figures, designed Dr. Ventimiglia as Senate candidate by the Southern America. Ventimiglia is a 47 year old Argentine lawyer, third generation of Italian immigrant family who worked for over 10 years side by side with Prodi. Talk about a globalize world…

The American Community in Argentina & the New York Magazine Guide
Topic: People and Communities
Whats in comom with The American Community in Argentina & the New York Magazine guide which published a article written by Ian Mount entitled “A moveable Fiesta”. Read on!
                                 
Link to Photo Album Buenos Aires at Night

A bright blue sky strikes the city of Buenos Aires, is full summer and the average 70 F temperatures warms up the beautiful metropolis. Its 19th century white buildings lighten up with the shine of a clear sky; the parks filled with blossoming trees are prettier than ever, the South American Paris is glooming. Those who are not off on holidays, enjoy the charm of the riverside cosmopolitan town. Many visitors from around the globe walk around the city center discovering BA mysteries and beauties. The only thing setting aside the tourists from the locals is the comfy ware, for this is a melting pot society in which every one fits in, as long as he or she is sophisticated, trendy and knows how to enjoy life. Those unique local cultural features together with a truly favorable and growing economy have become a huge magnet for people around the globe looking for a better life, higher living standards and the peace of mind of being on a permanent vacation feel. This last February weekend, the New York Magazine guide published an article written by Ian Mount entitled “A moveable Fiesta”. It’s a wonderful and interesting piece on American expat’s who chose Buenos Aires as their new loving home. But what catch my attention the most was a smaller subtitle, one could read on the upper left margin “Change your life”. The author was talking to all those young businessmen who work long hours, live in well located but small apartments, they are truly successful in many fields but this does not reflect on their living standards. This concept really catches my eye, so I kept on reading. I’m familiar with the fact that Buenos Aires has become a fantastically appealing location for people from around the globe who seek better living standards and to take out the most out of their hard earned money. I’ve even wrote several pieces on this, advising people from all over about the great options the Buenos Aires real estate market was offering –even before this was broadly published in all sorts of international magazines- I saw the line, and thought that nothing would be best than sharing the tip. The fact that awesome properties in the best neighborhoods of Buenos Aires can be afforded for ¿ the money you would be paying in New York, San Francisco, California, Paris, Rome or London is something to keep an eye on. And though Buenos Aires is not the only city around the world in this situation, it is one of the very few –I might risk, the only one- that while in Latin America and a developing country, has very similar cultural patterns to western developed capitals. The food, the aesthetic, the culture, the society is so cosmopolitan that everyone from anywhere fits perfectly. But it’s not just about fitting, its about getting what you want out of life. And that was clearly stated by Mount in his New York Guide piece. A former senior vice-president of bond sales with the Belgian banking conglomerate KBC, changes his one room apartment in NYC for a wonderful floor with terrace and swimming pool in the heart of BA. He also mentions the luck of a young Doctor and a gorgeous young woman, just to name some of those young and life thirsting people choosing to take control of their lives, present and future. We all thought that relocating around the globe was something retired old people did. Well, they actually do, but there’s no need to spend a life of mediocre appreciation of life to enjoy it during your last days. A couple of savings, a true appreciation of what’s good and makes you happy and a lot of courage take you really far, specially in this world in which breathtaking gorgeous places such as Buenos Aires offer such a broad range of options to delight and enjoy yourself.

Travel to Paris, France
Topic: People and Communities
ArtDealer and Pascal Debusschere from Paris,France. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome our friend and French correspondent Pascal. This is a great new addition to our growing international team, not only because of the great human quality of our friend, his brightness and coziness, but because he is a world wide insightful traveler, who enjoys the great pleasures of life, amazing adventures and fantastic sights. Hence he'll provide not only insightful information but that of great quality, of unknown treasures. Of course, as every good Frenchmen does, Pascal knows great eating and drinking. During his last visit to the South American region, Pascal discovered the great pleasure of Malbec and Tannat, asado and empanadas. Eager to incursion in different gastronomical worlds, he is THE man to lead us into the millenary secrets of French sophisticated and country side cuisine and wines. Once again. welcome dear friend! A bient?t!Bob Fassinetti. And now to Paris and all of France threw the eyes of Pascal Debusschere. Everyone in the world knows about France and mostly about Paris which is certainly one of the finest cities in the world. That being said, Paris is just a part of France and it' s a pity to realize that most of non-European travellers have no time to visit such places as Mont Saint Michel - 2nd most visited area in France by French and European tourists - or Rocamadour - 3rd most visited area - without mentioning Etretat, Honfleur which are only 200 kms North West away from Paris, Chambord renaissance style castle with its unique double spin stair - 3 hours drive from Paris - or even the Southern rivers riffs with their unbelievable caves, the most famous being the Padirac abyss. Please have a look into the attached pictures sent by my French buddy Pascal and you will see that France has still many things to offer... And do not forget that every part of France has also its own gastronomy to be sided with a local wine. Travelling in France like Frenchies do - everyday a new restaurant to discover - is the best way to make holidays there just unforgettable ! Feel free to contact us for any additional information you might need about a wonderful experience in France. See Photo Image Gallery of France, threw the eyes of Pascal & Michele:

Uruguay is a fascinating country ........
Topic: People and Communities
Travelling with frinds, Pascal Debusschere & Michele ( Paris, France) threw Buenos Aires, Argentina and Uruguay.South America...... Uruguay is a fascinating country, filled with beauty and culture, lovely architecture, great people and superb eating options. A brief river ferry ride away from the cosmopolitan Buenos Aires is Colonia del Sacramento, a small and gorgeous colonial town of incredible beauty and unsurpassed magic. Walking thru the stone paved streets of Colonia is a journey in time to a wonderful unspoiled paradise of beauty and history. The town’s upfront actions to preserve the historical sights have indeed been a great choice of matter, and both- locals and visitors- are grateful. In our trip we stayed at a classic colonial hotel of very few rooms and personalized attention, we felt like royalty and were treated as such, with superb luxury pampering in a relaxed atmosphere of cordiality. The Plaza Mayor … One of the great things about this small town is that in spite of its reduced dimensions, there’s always something new and amazing to discover, making of it a top notch destination… one of those places one never gets tired of. This trip’s finding was a fantastic boutique restaurant. La Florida, run by Carlos …….. See Photo Image Gallery of La Florida:
                                       
Link to Photo Album La Florida There wasn’t a huge warehouse like room for everybody, but small and intimate rooms distinctively decorated for the pleasure of those who enjoy a meal at this one of a kind restaurant. But the superb ambiance choice was just the ideal space in which to delight oneself with such amazing food. See Photo Image Gallery of La Florida and its owner, Carlos....
       
Link to Photo Album Inside La Florida After lunch a walk along these enchanting roads until the local lighthouse for a superb view of the city, the coast and the lovely perspective of the River Plate is the perfect broche for a perfect day. See Photo Image Gallery for a walk around Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay:
                                 
Link to Photo Album Colonia Some miles away from lovely Punta del Este is Jose Ignacio, home to one of the most beautiful Uruguayan lighthouses as well as the chosen getaway location for Latin American celebrities seeking nature, peace, quiet but notwithstanding sophistication. Jose Ignacio is just a couple of miles away from hotspot Punta del Este on the Atlantic Ocean coastline, and features alike the eastern location golden sand beaches and crystalline water. Uruguayans are people who really know how to enjoy life’s little pleasures, a lovely sunset, a great meal, a superb bottle of wine… and all these you can get in Jose Ignacio, surrounded by virgin beaches, rich pine and eucalyptus woods and fresh air. See Photo Image Gallery for Jose Ignacio:
Link to Photo Album Jose Ignacio Uruguay
Piriapolis, inbetween Punta del Este and Mondevideo....Developed before Punta del Este along the lines of a European spa resort, Piri¿polis attracts visitors for its excellent beaches, ....... See Photo Image Gallery:
Link to Photo Album Piriapolis

The perfect finale to a short but enriching tour around the Uruguayan coast is Montevideo, a capital city that still shows some of the best township traditions such as siesta and cordiality. This very friendly town features a very interesting view of Latin American French styled architecture; though it hasn’t been restored and some buildings show the marks of the pass of time. Some times one evens thinks a bit about Fidel Castro’s Cuba, Havana trapped in time ….. A must when in Montevideo is to hit the Sunday Market for lunch with the locals; here you’ll try the best “asado” in the area as well as meet the nicest people too!
