I would like to visit Argentina, but none of my friends want to go with me. I would go on my own, but I am worried, of course, that I would be lonely. Does anyone know of any tour groups that I could join?

Also, are there any "english pubs" in BA? When I was in Tokyo, I found that english pubs were good places to meet expatriots and locals who speak english.

Thanks,
Ben.

Hi there
I am a member of one expat club here in Mendoza.
Contact them and they might know of a similar club in BA, and hopefully THEY will tell you about pubs in BA..
I am sure there are some pubs there
here it is:

I would recommend not letting anything stop from the things you want to do, such as visit Argentina. I plan on going to Buenos Aires next year by myself. I visited Buenos Aires in April 2006 and I found people to be friendly and the city to be safe to travel by yourself. In fact, I ran into 3 separate people traveling by themselves. Good luck.

Kilkenny's Pub is nice. There are a lot of students who go there and business people. They love to speak to anyone who speaks English. It is good practice for them. It is near Puerto Maderio in Capital Federal.

How old are you Ben?
It is hard to be lonely in Argentina. Too many good people to talk to and way to much to keep you busy to worry about being lonely. You will have a good time, trust me.

A good hotel in Buenos Aires is operated by a good friend of mine. Hotel Monumental. It is on Junin street a few steps from Correntes. It is staffed by a lot of english speaking Argentineans who will enjoy talking to you and help you out.

Good luck amigo.

Thanks for all your help.

To answer your question, Tom, I am 35 years old.

Do you know of any pubs other than Kilkenny's Pub?

Thanks.

I have see others but I can't name them. Ask at your hotel and you can ask the patrons of Kilkennys. I hooked up with some friends there and we went to a diffrent one.

You will have a lot of fun I am sure

Check Deep Blue close to Puerto Madero. Nice after hours, young professionals crowd. A few others right on that block or nearby.

Ruggero, I am hijacking this thread for a second. Please don't forget to post pictures from the different neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. You have really nice content on your site. Some of the areas you have covered also have cool pubs where Ben could go.

It will be great to see some of your videos/pictures here and you are welcome to drop a link to your own blog for visitors to know where to find all of your material. I think pictures of the different areas of Buenos Aires can help visitors differentiate where there is action from those where there isn't.

Thanks a lot Roberto. I live in Buenos Aires City and I would like to show the city in both pictures and Video. I would like you to comment my videos in order to improve them. I feel that video can express a little more than some of the pictures.
Anyway, feel free to check out both Pictures and Videos at http://www.barts.com.ar
And thanks again Roberto for let me post here.
