Buenos Aires The Silver City | Buenos Aires, Argentina | This morning after 10 hours flight, I landed in Buenos Aires. Photo above is of the sun coming out over Buenos Aires, while landing at EZEIZA International Airport. The silhouette of the city with the Rio de la Plata behind shinning silver as the sun came out. Buenos Aires the “Silver City”. Argentina = Argentum (Ag) = Silver. The paradigm traced back to the first voyages made by the Spanish and Portuguese conquerors to the Río de la Plata which means “Silver River”, in the first years of the 16th century. But the sad truth is that La Plata Basin does not have any sources of silver, the only source can be found as far as I know close to Peru. Just sharing some Etymology. Anyhow, excited to spend the next two weeks here in Buenos Aires and surrounding areas. Gay Planning Mode is back and next week I am full hands on planning my 6th International Gay Wedding. All to be posted at www.carlosmeliablog.com — at Rio De La Plata.
Gay Planning mode is back, June 7th, to plan a Gay Wedding, once again, this time for a lovely couple from the Republic of Guayana. But in the meantime, as I always do, I will take sometime off to explore new and traditional options. This time I will be reviewing the following hotels and services, some of them I have tried before, but since I am taking my boyfriend, Rubin Singer, for his first visit to Buenos Aires, I want to show him the best the city has to offer: HUB Porteño Buenos Aires and their private tours “Experiences of the City”. Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires and their new look after their big renovation. The iconic and traditional Alvear Palace Hotel and their brand new sister property the Alvear Art Hotel. Two days getaway to one of my favorite spots close to Buenos Aires as it is San Antonio de Areco, to show Rubin the true heritage of Gauchos and the Pampas at Estancia La Bamba de Areco and some intimate dinners at Tarquino Restaurant and ROJO Tango Show & Dinner. As usual all to be posted and featured here and at my Social Network. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Colleen G. Customer Feedback • ( New York, United States ) Oh my goodness, we had a fantastic time! We enjoyed everything! I apologize, I wanted to email you to thank you but I came back to so much work. We were so very, very happy! Thank you so very much! I really loved the Design CE Hotel and the staff was great. Just so you know the front of the hotel is a bit loud from street noise, I think in the future I would stay in the back but the place is fantastic and I loved their staff! Feliz Navidad! You should come to my restaurant for New Years Eve, it’s great! xo, Colleen Hope to see you soon!
Colleen and her husband visited Buenos Aires staying at Design CE Hotel and Colonia del Sacramento staying at La Casa de los Limoneros. The took several tours like San Antonio de Areco Full Gaucho Experience Day, ROJO Tango Show and Dinner and Private City Tour of Buenos Aries. CM

Eric Andrews Katz Customer Feedback | from Seattle Gay News, Seattle, United States | Howdy, Just Got home from Rojo Tango. It was truly a beautiful thing to watch. Thank you very much. As for Iguazu Falls, once I got all the scheduling figured out with the flight change, everything was fine. Jose was a great tour for the falls and Andrews (aside from being adorable) was good for the zip lining. The only bad thing was the delay of AUSTRAL flights. I was at the airport for over 4 hours, but there was nothing to be done about that. I had a great time and got lots of pictures. Thanks, EMAK. Andrew and his partner used my services at CM by Carlos Melia while visiting the following destinations in Argentina: Iguazu Falls and Buenos Aires.CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
