It is the summer music concert season here in Buenos Aires, and the local classical music radio station AMADEUS is hosting their outdoor concert for the next 18 hours in the park by my house across from the US embassador's palace and the amazingly beautiful Spanish fountain. The weather is threatening to not cooperate, as we just had a little bit of a shower that cooled things off a bit. Crowds overall have been undeterred though. TheOne of my favorite things about Buenos Aires is the large selection of free cultural events sponsored by the city. This allows all porteños (citizens of Buenos Aires) access to culture irrespective of their socio-economic background. Here is a link to the festival for more information: http://www.amadeus103.com/programacion.asp?menu=1&prog_ext=true
I plan to go have dinner at an Italian restaurant in Las Canitas, and then venture over afterwards to see what wonderful music I can experience in my cultural bastion of Buenos Aires.
