Argentina is going through an economic crisis right now. 40% inflation in 2018 has made it a great time to be traveling here from the United States, but Buenos Aires is struggling. With only two days here, we’ve tried to do our part to help the local economy by shopping, eating, and touring around this amazing city that is a little down, but definitely not out.
Buenos Aires is also gearing up for the G20 conference that starts here in 11 days. On November 30 and December 1, Emmanuel Macron, Theresa May, Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin, Justin Trudeau, Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, together with host president, Mauricio Macri. The Summit will take place in South America for the first time in its history.
Over two days of discussions held behind closed doors, leaders will attempt to build a consensus, based on the progress made in other meetings throughout the year, with a view to agreeing on a declaration that has fair and sustainable development as its focus.
Tomorrow…we’re off to Patagonia!
