Cabillito

CABALLITO

In Buenos Aires there is a barrio or neighbourhood, which although it is a bit away from the centre of the city has, thanks to its beautiful buildings, sufficient character of its own to be taken into account at the moment of choosing lodgings. Specifically if and when we are talking about longer stays.

Caballito is in many respects very similar to the residential district of Belgrano, located in the central eastern part of the city. It lacks nothing and has nothing to envy any other part of town in regards to services. To stay or live in Caballito is an attractive option for anyone.
Its tree shaded Avenidas and streets is the perfect frame for its old well conserved patrician apartment buildings that have been totally renovated in order to offer all modern comforts to those new generation that live in them today.

The Avenida Pedro Goyena and the streets that cross it make up the heart of the best residential area in Caballito. Puán, Miró, Emilio Mitre and Víctor Martínez are but a few of the neighbouring beautiful streets. The Avenida Rivadavia offers a very fluid connection with the central parts of the city and is also one of the main commercial streets in the city.

To get to Caballito one can use one of the "colectivos" from the port part of the city, or else the Underground or subway on Avenida Rivadavia or else also the rail tram of the Sarmiento line.

I'm looking for some help…

We're starting a podcast for/by people who have immigrated to another country. We'd like to bring stories/articles by contributors FROM every continent, TO every continent. (i.e., a Mexican living in Canada, or a Scot living in France, a Dane living in Japan, an Ecuadorian living in Brazil, an Australian living in Africa, etcetera, etcetera.)

The "immigrant" category is rather large, examples include: expatriates, academics, aid workers, refugees, foreign businesspeople, spouses of "foreigners" etc.

I've written to quite a few organizations searching for good contributors; journalism schools, international corporations, non-profit aid organizations, etc. I've had a lot of interest, but not a lot of actual work submitted.

I was hoping to find help here in the blogosphere, as you all are prolific writers!

Please help! I need people to contribute articles (2-3 pages), 3 times per year. You may of course choose the topic, it may be light or heavy. Please see the guidelines set out in our website in the "contribute here" section.
