No matter how many clusters BS' skyline might have, it doesn't even come close to being as harmonious and dramatic as Santiago's.

It is the same thing that to compare New York with Miami, It doesn´t matter how many new buidings and how harmonious skyline Miami has because New York always is going to be better.
It´s my subejetive opinion.

Every opinion is subjective... I'm very dissapointed of the argentinian forumers that act with so much envy...

That´s because the most of the bad coments are for BSAS.
If you like something you like it but you don´t have to compare both cities everytime: BsAs is not as impresive as Santiago, BsAs is not as clean as Santiago´s, etc, etc, if you like Santiago you say: I love Santiago! and that´s ok, but don´t say Santiago is better because is false, BsAs is not better and Santiago is not better, they are diferents thats all.
And I don´t envy Santiago at all,,, I think that is a beautiful city but BsAs has nothing to envy to any city.

You are so wrong. Argentineans dont have any reason to act with envy. We are educated with the ideas of "we are the best in SA", "We are Argentineans, and the rest are latins". I think that this concept is very negative for our country future. But the thing is like this.
I just tell you this, for you to understand that Argentineans dont have any envy at all, and even less of chle.

I wasn´t educated with that idea, that´s false.


I don´t envy them but I don´t think We are better neither. I just got mad because of the many coments comparing the two cities everytime, If you like one of them most it´s ok but don´t say that this one is nicer than..... ,, if I like some I don´t need to say that the other thing that I don´t like is awful.

should I say it again? B.A skyline is boring, it doesn't have a big impact, that necesarely doesn't mean B.A is a dull city, architecturally speaking B.A is by far the most beautiful city in S.A, but in terms of skyline Santiago is way ahead of B.A..and please don't whine about it jeez!
