Paris lives an unprecedented summer, without foreign tourists for the first time in decades

Havana or Paris: what is the capital of Argentine dreams

Between Paris and Havana, the Argentine rift widens with a new and absurd tweet debate: which exile is more patriotic? Cristina Kirchner’s or Mauricio Macri’s?
