"[Our guide] was an excellent tour guide. He was able to switch between Argentinian history, politics, and architecture seamlessly. We felt like we saw a ton of buildings inside the tour. I really enjoyed the small size, so that we could maneuver around the city quickly."

A Buenos Aires native, Santiago studied architecture at the Universidad Nacional de Buenos Aires, where he also taught for six years. His passion for drawing lead him first to became a comic strip artist and later a street artist. He has painted walls all over South America, Mexico and also in Europe. His “signature” is a flying pig, which can be found all over Buenos Aires. He grew fond of these friendly animals while working on his family´s farm, which is located 200 km away from the city, in what used to be a small Irish colony known locally as Arroyo de Luna. This variety of activities give him a unique perspective on the city and its history that he looks forward to sharing with visitors on Context tours.

Juan has participated in research projects about the history of the first half of the XIX century in Argentina and I has worked in two vastly different cultural institutions: the Colón opera house and a center of contemporary art. Juan's diverse experiences has given him the possibility of understanding both the urban evolution of the city and the idiosyncrasies of the nation, as well as its models of behavior and beauty, its expectations and its fears.
