Buenos Aires is a city where every open area is transformed into a dance floor.

CNN (CNN) – It is the capital of South America that sticks out the most. Buenos Aires is unlike anyplace else on this diverse and beautiful continent because of its rich immigration history and physical isolation, far below the equator.
