Buenos Aires is much more than the clichéd "Paris of South America." Undoubtedly, it has bustling cafés that pour out onto the sidewalks, a plethora of Belle Epoque buildings, and broad, leafy avenues that lead to floral urban parks. But without the local Argentines and Portenos immigrants who call it home and give it the distinctive Buenos Aires flavor, Buenos Aires wouldn't be the vibrant capital metropolis that it is. Whether it's for asado, tango, literature, art, or fashion, local interests run deep. Paris couldn't do it.
