Salomé was born in Mendoza, Argentina, and moved to Buenos Aires at the age of eighteen to become a professional actress and English translator. She later studied and worked in California, Madrid, and London, where she also taught Spanish, but ultimately moved back to Buenos Aires to develop her acting career in theater, TV, and film. Besides languages and acting, she also has a passion for Argentine social culture, such as the art of dining and Tango. Salome loves helping visitors learn about her adopted city's culture and its diversity, in addition to showing them an insider's view of its cafés, restaurants, theaters, and Tango bars.
Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Juan studied architecture at the Universidad de Buenos Aires during the social and economic crisis of 2001, a critical moment that led to his interest in Argentine history. Currently he teaches at the same university and also works as a consultant in different offices of the federal government for cultural and historic heritage. Juan has an active research life as the coordinator of an inventory of over 4,000 pieces of architecture that was planned in honor of the Argentine Bicentennial (1810-2010), and as a preservation activist, he is especially interested in the symbolic and cultural values of Buenos Aires' architecture and urban spaces.
