Tango Argentin à Buenos Aires inscrit au Patrimoine Culturel Immatériel ( UNESCO) ©Yves Cruchet

Dancing with peace

Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Ayre, literally Our Lady St. Mary of the Good Wind is the original name of the capital of Argentina, well known under the name of Buenos Aires, reminding that the port city is one that winds of Africa and Europe have come to build.
