Argentina (Country Guide)

User Review  - Douglas Lord - Book Verdict

About the author (2010)

Sandra Bao's mom escaped China's communist regime after WWII, then hopped on a freighter to Argentina. After months at sea, she arrived in Buenos Aires--two days after Evita's death (1952). Mourning workers meant luggage wasn't processed for a week. Sandra's dad had a better welcome in 1955. Sandra's parents met, got married and had two kids. In 1974, Argentina was in turmoil, so once again the family emigrated to greener pastures, this time the USA. Sandra remains proud to be a portena and has often returned to her homeland. She's the author of Lonely Planet's Buenos Aires guidebook, and has contributed to Argentina and South America on a Shoestring.
