The dream of sick men and birds

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

As we are

Watching a plane take off or land is something we don't all experience every day. That's why it's not surprising that 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 stroll along the Costanera to see how entire families settle behind the Aeroparque fence — fully equipped with a sun bed, mate and biscuits — to enjoy the free show without moving around the city and turning their back on the other attraction that gathers visitors to this area: the Rio de la Plata.

Someone said that flying is the dream of sick men and birds. Maybe that's why airplane sighting has a magic difficult to explain, especially for the younger ones: it's nothing less than the magic of flying, 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 move it through the air. Without a doubt, from those outings to the Costanera on Sundays in the afternoons, more than a pilot's pigeon is born: between mate and talk — who tells you — the baby finds his vocation.
