As an Argentine expatriate, I am often asked what I miss the most about my country. The truth is, with telephone rates and e-mail being what they are, I don't have much of a chance to miss my friends and family. But I do miss my city: Buenos Aires. I miss the long after-dinner walks on the cobblestone streets of the Belgrano or Palermo neighborhoods, taking my kids for a treat in one of the hundreds of ice cream stores in town, getting together with friends at a cafe in the Recoleta, or occasionally splurging on a fancy meal at one of the many waterfront restaurants in Puerto Madero.
