The dream of sick men and birds

Someone said flying is the dream of sick men and birds.

As we are

Seeing how an airplane takes off or lands is something we don't all experience on a daily basis. Therefore, it is no wonder it catches our attention when we witness one of those moments live and live. But in Argentina we always go one step further, and turn curiosity into a plan for the weekend.

Just take a tour around the Costanera to see how whole families settle behind the aeroparque fence — fully equipped with loungers, matte and biscuits — to enjoy the free show without moving around the city and turning your back to the other attraction that gathers visitors around that area: the Rio de la Plata.

Someone said flying is the dream of sick men and birds. Perhaps that is why airplane watching has a magic difficult to explain, especially for the youngest: it is nothing more or less than the magic of flying, of taking off from the ground and floating.

It is also trying to understand how someone could have materialized such an invention and how someone else is able to make it move through the air. Undoubtedly, from those trips to the Costanera on Sunday afternoon more than a pilot's pigeon is born: between mate and talk —who says to you— the baby finds his vocation.
