NBC Today Show's Matt Lauer Visits Buenos Aires

On the NBC Today Show there was a special this morning as Part of the segment on "Where in the World is Matt Lauer?" focused on Buenos Aires, Argentina. I had known about this ahead of time through a friend who was doing some ghost writing, but it was funny that several people from the US contacted me about it via email throughout today.

Lauer stays mostly in Buenos Aires, but does trek to Bariloche Patagonia. Through the segment they touch on Tango, Argentine Beef, the legacy of Eva Peron, wine, and many travel tips.

NOTE: One inaccuracy was the price of the taxi from the Airport. Its about 20-25 US dollars to get from Ezeiza International Airport to Buenos Aires.

If you missed the segment, I highly recommend you check out their web site. If you have high speed internet, you can watch the whole segment from the internet.

WARNING: You might impulsively want to buy a ticket an visit Argentina.

You forgot to mention that you know the person who provided some of the background information to Matt Lauer that he used on the program.
