"In the day and age of the smartphone, it's amazing to see that children are still captivated by this 19th-century merry-go-round." Leonel is one of the last remaining carousel repairmen in Buenos Aires, having taken over the business from his grandfather Hector. Coming soon to BBC.

Dylan Reales started learning to play golf by swinging a broken broomstick at rotting fruit in the narrow streets of Buenos Aires' slums. He followed his dream, and with the support of his grandfather, is now winning tournaments all over Argentina. Coming soon to @bbcworldservice!

I had a lovely evening last night in Buenos Aires with some of our Argentinian 🇦🇷 team who helped with research, coordinating, and translating throughout the week. They were brill!

I had some free time this morning so I went for a stroll through Buenos Aires’ Le Recoleta Cemetery. It has been the burial ground for the good and great of Argentinian society over the years, including its most famous inhabitant, Eva Peron, beloved former First Lady of Argentina. Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.”

Two boys from a poor neighbourhood of Buenos Aires take turns at hearing their own voice in the my headphones. They couldn't stop laughing.

"It's so important we never forget our history, especially in a country like Argentina." Buenos Aires sculptor Sylvia talks me through the restoration work she's carrying out on one of the city's over 2,000 historical statues.

There are over 2,000 statues dotted around Buenos Aires, in its parks and plazas. The statues celebrate the historical Argentinian heavyweights in politics, culture, and society at large. But the warm humidity, acidic rain, and widespread vandalism has taken its toll on the beloved figures. That's where the government-run 'Hospital for Statues' comes in! Each year they repair and restore hundreds of these icon statues to their former glory. I recorded with them today for the BBC, coming soon!

Across the road from my Buenos Aires hotel, a beautiful small fruit store.

A lone figure in the distance walks the center of the road.

My brother Patrick called me from Ireland the other day, "Have you seen my favorite grey jumper? I can't find it anywhere." "No, I've no idea where it is Patrick."... I hope he finds it soon.
