We go to see “La bomba de tiempo”, group of drums formed by 17 distinguished percussionists. The musicians practice led improvisation and use a system of approximately 70 signs made with the hands, fingers and body. Each concert is unique and unpredictable as it depends on the interaction of all those involved in the ritual.
Tuesday: We visit ” La Catedral “ where you can enjoy Open tango lessons to learn the fundamentals of this dance, dancing, food and drinks.
Wednesday: Walking Tours around different areas in Buenos Aires City such as Recoleta, or San Telmo.
Thursday: Wine Tasting to discover several wines from different regions in Argentina and also learn the basics about the different wines and how to taste them.
Friday: We go to theatre plays and concerts or enjoy dinner at typical restaurants in Buenos Aires. Afterwards we can go for drinks or club dancing. It is a good time to share and socialize with locals and other students from DWS.
During the weekends we organize trips to see football matches where the best teams in Argentina compete, such as Boca and River. And also explore the outskirts of the City.
