Buenos Aires Culture

Some of the most idiosyncratic aspects of Buenos Aires Culture are impossible to miss – the locals penchant for mate, for example, and the endless cheek-kissing to say hello and goodbye.

Others are less obvious, such as the custom that you will be cursed with misfortune simply by mentioning the name of those believed to be mufas (bringers of bad luck) – unless, that is, you touch your left testicle or breast as you say their name.
