the happy city
mar del plata is a summer city in the atlantic coast four hours south of buenos aires. it is the biggest summer spot in argentina today and was also the preferred vacation destination for the argentinean aristocracy during the last century. this is evidenced by the architecture that is still intact and the most magnificent and solid houses like those seen in european destinations in travel magazines. i adored this city and its vibe (not for nothing i think its referred to as la feliz -the happy city-) and would even like to think of coming sailing to this place; if it were just a little closer to the equator and warmer of course!
