Rune V. Harristhøj, correspondent for the Danish Press, lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was born in Denmark, but has being living and working in South America for 20 years. This has been enough time to make him feel like a tourist when coming home, and like an expert when speaking about the southern country, he said.
Attendees experienced an evening accompanied with wine and Latin music. They heard about the most popular places to visit, but also about the main cultural differences between Danes and Argentinians.
Tore Harritshøj, a Copenhagen resident and brother of the speaker, said, “I find it very interesting, it was a very good introduction of what it is to be a Dane in Argentina, into the old culture of Argentina.”
