Travel Argentina with Bob Frassinetti for arts and antiques as well as 4WD travel adventure .... if Traveling is all about meeting people, going through different experiences, enjoying different cultures and discovering foreign and interesting sites. I’ve traveled throughout the south of South America, and I truly believe that a great part of making a memorable experience out of a journey is meeting people, locals specially. Getting to know the site through a local’s point of view is a wonderful experience, off the path outings… following the popular saying: “when in Rome, you do what Romans do”. That’s my leitmotiv when traveling. I also adore my country. I’m a proud Argentinean who has discovered throughout the years the beauty and mysteries of this southern country. Hence I began sharing throughout forums and websites my experiences, tips on what to do when visiting our country. And as I kept on writing about the various customs of our culture I kept on discovering things –little treasures- that I thought were for granted. A great wine, an outstanding site within the city, my own refuge from the craziness of a cosmopolite city, an off the path antique fair… this has been a two way street experience, for at the same time I proudly share the beauties of my land, I have found myself discovering many new and interesting features too. I even have met some great people through these forums, people who came to BA and met with me, with which we’ve had an amazing time and enjoyed a great conversation, a glass of outstanding Argentinean wine. I’ve written about art & antiques, visiting the Patagonia or riding the train up to the Andes through the clouds, shopping and leisure in the city of Tango and of course, about the great pleasure Argentineans take on good eating. I’ve always focused on our most traditional dish, asado, for I’ve thought it was the most perfect way of getting into the Argentinean feel. However I’ve recently discover, that Argentineans –alike many countries within the world who have been built hand in hand thanks to a great flow of immigration, are not all the same. We –as a nation- share our culture and language, but each and every one of us is unique. We each have a particular life’s history that has made us be what we are, and it’s important not to forget about that. To me, that particular part of myself is curry. Yes, food. Yes, Indian food, which I got into when I lived in London and in the British Guyana. My speciality is my Indian-British- Argentinean curry… Hmmm; Indian from origin, British for it’s were I picked it up, and Argentinean for non of these countries have the superb kind of meat we have down here in Argentina and that adds that special something to it. This is my bonding meal, I cook it for my special people. It’s a ceremony which I find most amusing. Not to brag, but it’s the best curry in the country! I won’t say my secret for I’m an artist, and that would spoil the magic… You must come down here and experience it yourself.
