        The Trump’s are perfect ambassadors of America at these type of events, whether it’s an elegant dinner or social event or a world changing meeting the President presides over.

        The Trump’s are always in the front row of group photos for good reason. They are a stunning couple, obviously happy, loving and bonded by their role as leaders of the world. As always, Melania is stunning. The leather coat and two different skirts and pairs of shoes she wore enroute and when disboarding AF One were gorgeous. (www.breitbart.com/entertainment)

        The Argentine First Couple also exude love and elegance. So nice to see first ladies that are comfortable being women, have grace and dignity, but also sweetness of countenance and feminity. Such a contrast from the harsh women on the world stage in frumpy pantsuits, haggard, dour faces and clunky shoes. Who wants to see that as examples for young women, for crying out loud?! Our lovely FLOTUS is the most photogenic woman on the planet. Hands down, the most intriguing, beautiful First Lady in our history. Good luck to all comers of the future if they try to compete. There will be many imitators, but only one Original.

        An uptick for the Stick Figure Couple, the Macron’s, is that the French Prez finally found a guy to stand next to that was more tiny than he. Rude, though, that he appeared to have butted his wife to the back of the group photo.

    I love the “family photo” shot on the stairs with poor petite Macron is pretty much overshadowed by President Trump and Justin is also 2nd tier position.

    Really lovely night and beautiful event. James Bond like!

    I have always wondered why a Bond film has never been shot here. Both BA, Bariloche and the terrain to the north are exquisite…maybe some day!

    Both First ladies even more!

        Salon dorado in the Teatro Colon. Absolutely beautiful. Teatro Colon has the best acustic in the world. From the times Argentina was very rich, around 1929. Unfortunately they didnt know how to take care of their country and they ended up broke and morally wounded too. So sad.

          Exquisite! I was in BA in 1990 when the Austral was lurching and diving on a daily basis. We could not change money on Fridays.

          The country is exquisite, but I must tell you that we tried to buy one pair of men’s socks in the leading department store in BA.

          Similar to a Nordstrom’s or so, but torn at the seams and large fans attempting to cool the place down.

          It took one hour and four attendents. One to show you the socks, one to find the inventory, one to close the deal and the last one to register the charge.

          That is how exquisitely screwed up Argentina was then. It never seems to get better, but the restaurants, bars and Tango halls go all night !!!

          And the most WONDERFUL people!!!

          We met people in Bariloche with whom we stayed friends for 20 years until they passed.

              Putin didnt look very convinced. He barely clapped and had an expression of “this is a joke”. However the President of Argentina cried at the end of the performance . He said that he did it because the young artists were so proud of their work.

      And just to post cultural contrasts and attitudes…while the larger East Room of the White House would be a closer comparison the dining room at the Argentinian ”White House’, the Casa Rosada, below is the State Dinner in another reception room given by President and Mrs. Trump for Macron and his wife last year.

      Such a simple, but beautiful American experience. Reminds us the Europe from where we came and how we, as a new people, a new rugged Republic, physically demonstrated our straight forward attitude. The White House is simply the best, most beautiful American home.

            Candidate Trump intuitively knew this, perhaps from his NYMC High School training and his parents. He understands America… for such a time as this.

          Yes, my only point is that unlike buildings like the Casa Rosada, the White House is not of a palatial scale but that of a home.

          The Teatro Colon is very similar to the Casa Rosada. This is the Palace and the interior of the White Room…the White House has nothing even close to this scale.

          I am also pretty sure the Teatro was selected for both dining and the event for security reasons, so there was no need to move dignitaries from the Casa Rosado to the theater.

            Argentina was closer to Europe during the times they had money to build these palaces. There are many beautiful palaces in the city. They were private homes . Buenos Aires has places where you really think you are in Madrid, move sone blocks and one will swear one is in London. The same with Paris, etc. As of protocoling in formal parties is very similar to European grand palaces. For exampke I dont know if anybody noticed that in that banquet style table each person had one waitress, his/her private waitress very much european style. Everybody is served at the same time. This protocol is very much observed in formal banquets, expensive wedding parties, etc.

              Yes, indeed. BA and Argentina are completely European culture.

              The Recoleta Cemetery is a case in point. The neighborhood is beautiful to begin with. But the cemetery is one of the three best in the world.

              When you first walk in there, you are completely unprepared for the magnificence of the place.

              Does not look like a cemetery at all, just another gated neighborhood!

        So true.

        I remember checking into the Ritz on my first day there, around 2 in the afternoon, sightseeing, nap and then cocktails in the bar, but went out for dinner the first night at 11 PM…no one in the restaurant.

        The sun does not set until maybe 11:30PM?

        So we learn about the Argentinians. They have a fairly slower wake up but due to the sun, they have a very different day, and evening habit. We were literally on a sidewalk at 3:30 AM when movies were letting out and babies in carriages were taken home!

      What the stage video showed us looked very much like much of the USA – being an Arizonan I was interested in the Saguaro and even areas looking much like the Utah/AZ border region, other parts of the video looked like our midwest farming areas, and their own Niagra Falls…….. Very interesting.

        Indeed, Argentina and the US have very similar and rich geographies. Oceans, plains, mountains, rivers, arid areas, deserts, etc. In fact, the two countries were roughly equally sought by huge waves of European migrants during most of last two centuries. Until Argentine politicians destroyed Argentina’s economy.

      As I always say, go anywhere in the world and you will find argentines. At least four in just the CTH. I lived in DC some time ago and in any government organization you found argentines, mostly in high positions, difficult to identify due to their diverse european last names. Needless to say in NYC, LA, Miami, everywhere.seems that Argentina trained people for export.

        Macron, with his tanking polls, is a creature of the French Civil Service. That by itself spells lack of imagination or the ability to confront challenges he is facing. However, he at least has an anchor to not do anything totally risqué, but like anyone who was in the CS, he is not ever going to be a leader.
