WRITERS TOUR-CONFERENCE
BUENOS AIRES ARGENTINA.

Introduction:

In conjunction with writers and authors in Argentina, our organization is preparing the first CDPA North-South Writers Tour-Conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The CDPA conference is an organized --though less than formal-- gathering and tour of writers from North and South America. In addition to the formal conference proceedings, there will also be numerous visits to city literary cafes, homes of writers, tango workshops and night clubs, and other cultural attractions of the city and its surrounding areas.

WRITERS TOURS TO ARGENTINA (and other Latin American Capitals)

We organize a writers tour that combines site seeing trips, meetings with fellow writers, receptions, lectures, shopping and a wide range of cultural and entertaining activities in this most cultured and fun of all Latin American cities. Buenos Aires is dubbed the Paris of Latin America and is the birth place and capital of Tango. The tour will certainly include the sensual Tango, the legendary gaucho BBQs, 5 star shopping at 2 1/2 star prices and an overall cultural and educational experience at the highest level. For more information please write to hune@culture-and-ecology.com. 914-439-7731
