Buenos Aires is in the middle of the summer these days. Which is good for me at some point, because women use miniskirts, which make life a lot easier. But it also means lots of heat and sweating.
And many people rush to the beaches, some 400 kilometers (about 200 miles or so) from the city. It's countless hours in the car just to get your feet on the sand. Cities like Pinamar, Miramar, Mar del Plata or Villa Gessell get crowded with hundreds of people searching for a good tan, some refreshment, seafood and of course, women in bikinis (or men in bathing suits, if the vacationers are women).
Some others, like myself, go to our neighboring country Uruguay, to the beautiful beaches of Punta del Este.
So, in these next days I'll be sending you a couple of TV commercials using the summer as inspiration.
