Dear Friends,

At a recent concert QuinTango’s long-time friend Terry Sisk overheard one of you asking if you could come with us on our fall trip to Buenos Aires. Since he’s in the travel business (as well as a QuinTango fan and a great tour leader), Terry sprang into action! The result, I am very pleased to announce, is that Reston Team Travel, with Terry Sisk as tour leader and organizer, will be offering a trip Buenos Aires with QuinTango September 2-10. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Transportation and lodging: Friday, September 2, we’ll take the non-stop evening United flight. It’s overnight, but the good news is - no jet lag: the time difference is one hour. We’ll be whisked from the airport to the luxurious five-star Crowne Plaza Panamericana hotel in the heart of Buenos Aires. You will be able to walk out the front door to find fabulous shopping, restaurants, and tango dancers and musicians performing al fresco! The return flight is also a late night flght, putting us into Washington early Saturday morning, September 10th.
  • Activities: We’ll visit the Viejo Almacen for a spectacular tango evening with world-class dancers, singers, and musicians. (When I was there in January, our frequent arranger and friend Maestro Osvaldo Berlinghieri was performing; as of now he’s planning to still be there in September.) We’ll attend concerts by well known Buenos Aires tango orchestras and of course visit the Café Tortoni for a glimpse of the old Buenos Aires. We’ll have a tour of the magnificent Teatro Colon, one of the greatest theaters in the world (and maybe a concert, for those interested). We’ll check out the San Telmo market on Sunday - antiques, tango musicians and dancers (some of whom are also antiques). We’ll visit La Boca, the waterfront neighborhood where tango started (and where our frequent collaborator and choreographer Carina Losano grew up). If you want to try a tango dance lesson (or observe one), I’ll take you over to the Confiteria Ideal and hook you up with our friend Jose who teaches tango there. We’ll tear you away from the tango music long enough to visit an estancia (a country estate) for an afternoon of folklorico followed by an asado, the famous Argentine barbecue. There is an optional trip to Uruguay, for those who get restless.
  • Food: We’ll have a welcome dinner at the hotel followed by a QuinTango concert. Breakfasts at the hotel are included. You’ll have a barbecue at the estancia and a dinner at the tango show. All other meals will be on your own. The food in BA is fabulous - especially for you meat lovers - and very inexpensive. You can have a gourmet meal or the world’s best steak and a bottle of wine for under $10. Terry will be there to help you find restaurants and organize evenings out. I have some favorite places I’ll share with you too.
  • Weather and clothing: It will be early spring. Bring long sleeves, a coat, sweaters (think March in D.C.) . Shopping here is great, so if you forget something you are actually in luck.

The all-inclusive cost of this trip is $1950 per person double occupancy (a single supplement applies, but we can try to match you up with a roommate!). Contact Terry Sisk at Reston Team Travel for a reservation form and tour particulars: restonteamtravel@aol.com. The group size is limited. To be guaranteed a spot, you need to contact Terry by June 20.
