The conurban also exists
Sightseeing does not always involve a plane or a long-distance bus. You don’t even need a car, or go that far. This shows us Mauro Albarracín, an unconventional tourist who makes trips around the city of Buenos Aires. That’s right: he does not travel abroad or to other provinces. He doesn’t even move around the city to visit the most typical neighborhoods.
Mauro travels through Gran Buenos Aires: Quilmes, Florencio Varela, Moreno, Morón, Santos Lugares, La Lucila, Ciudad Evita, Martínez, Ituzaingó. That’s where he goes by collective and is dedicated to knowing the peculiarities and typical sites of each place. Accompanied by a friend or a local guide, tour the streets, visit emblematic businesses, try meals. And upload all that to his YouTubechannel, Les Amateurs.At
22 years old, Mauro lives in San Fair, party of La Matanza, and defines himself as “the Marley of the conurban”. His YouTube channel already records almost 200 videos and it’s furor. Its Followers comment, provide information and make suggestions. For about months, managed to live from this: tourism through the conurban is today a full-time work for him.
In the shadow of the porteños
Mauro Albarracín comes to claim that strip that surrounds the City of Buenos Aires and lives a little in the shade of it. Those of us who live in the conurban (in particular, those who live in the neighborhoods of the west and south) we are not Porteños, but we interact with them every day. And we find it hard to explain to them that no, that no is so far; yes, we take two collectives to get everywhere, but it’s not that bad. That our neighborhood has its charm and its people, and all those things that make it special for us.
Mauro takes care of showing all that. Because the conurban also exists.
