Photo of the Day: Buenos Aires Tango


Our 2009 Dream Trip Contest is reaching the homestretch, with just three more weeks to enter for a chance to win a $25,000 vacation to wherever you choose. In some two and a half months, we've had nearly 13,000 entries. For inspiration for your own entry, read our take on a submission that caught our eye:

It takes two to tango, so the expression goes, and Dream Trip entrant agirlintheworld found just the pair to encapsulate a trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina, a couple whose pas de deux was seductive enough to inspire thoughts of permanent relocation.

"Just outside Recoleta Cemetery, the tango music played," writes agirlintheworld in the Dream Trip entry "Let's Dance." "I watched in guilty rapture as the couple swayed around the square. Tango, when done correctly, is so intimate. It makes the audience feel like a voyeur, a witness to something that they shouldn't be seeing, drawn in by the beauty of it all. This is what made me decide to move to Buenos Aires someday. Sometimes, life just needs to be danced away."

Share your travel photos and memories in our 2009 Dream Trip Contest. You could be just a few clicks away from a $25,000 trip to anywhere you choose.


Governor Sanford may have had that same romantic notion!
