(The Buenos Aires Times)
The coronavirus pandemic has sparked a rise in so-called ‘digital nomads’ across the world – and the City Government has unveiled a new initiative to tempt them to Buenos Aires.
Over the course of the past year, many of us have posed ourselves the same question: ‘What am I going to do when all this is over?’ Luckily for the globetrotters among us, the Buenos Aires City government is already paving the way for a new type of tourist to enter the country.
City Hall is looking to seduce and attract ‘digital nomads’ to the capital, a type of worker seldom heard of a few years ago, but that is perhaps closer to the new normal in 2021. These world citizens are remote workers who choose to combine travel with work, and they can often be found in coffee shops with a steady WiFi connection or cheap but trendy co-working spaces — two things Buenos Aires certainly isn’t lacking.
