in Cumelen. Eleonora Cole shows us her vacations in La Angostura, the place she has chosen for thirty years

For Eleonora Cole (47), Patagonia is his place in the world. “A destination that I would choose to live. I have been coming every summer and winter for about 30 years. And for 10 years, we have been trying to add more getaways every time it happens”, says the journalist, who receives ¡HOLA! Argentina at home in the exclusive country club Cumelén, on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi in Villa La Angostura. She is accompanied by her husband, Carlos Corro (49, commercial director at Cencosud of the Jumbo, Disco and Vea supermarkets) and his children Bautista (22), Jazmín (20) and Elena (16). “I love the South because it is a place that balances me. After spending the whole year working daily with information and hard news, I feel that need to oxygenate myself and relax in contact with nature”, he reveals.

A lover of mate, sports and outdoor life, Eleonora finds in Villa La Angostura the perfect place to “air and relax”. In Buenos Aires, at his house in Tigre, during his free time he likes to work in his garden and in the orchard Federico Soto

–You studied to be a Systems Analyst, how did you go from that career to journalism?

-Today I think it was like a family rebellion, because everything was given for me to pursue a career related to communication. My maternal grandfather, Guillermo Meque, always worked on television and in 1983 he was called to be the first democracy intervener on Channel 13. My mother, Marta Meque, in addition to dedicating herself to the press and public relations, worked for 10 years on channel as producer. I remember that she would pick us up from school and we would accompany her to work, and with my brothers, Victoria and Len, we would do our homework in the corridors of El Trece. My brothers studied advertising. I received my degree and I knew I was not going to practice, the degree did not fit my personality, but I finished it. Then I started working with mom organizing events. And at an event to benefit Father Mario’s work, Raúl Portal offered me a job. I was taking theater and musical comedy classes, and I stayed for The Pet Portal and Upa elanimo. So were my beginnings on television. Later I studied journalism at ETER.

-Would you dare to participate in Dancing, as one of your colleagues did, Débora Plager?

–I love entertainment, but I wouldn’t participate in Dancing because I’m made of wood! Maybe yes in the Singing. I always sang for myself or at barbecues with friends. Music connects me a lot, now I am studying singing with Sol Mihanovich and her husband, Matías Onzari, who is also a musician, and gives guitar, piano and ukulele lessons to my children. Going back to television, I also worked with Pachu Peña and Pablo Granados doing The Best and The Worst in America. The show amuses me, the only thing I would not like is to talk about others in a show business.

-What do you dream for your career?

–I do journalism because I am still a dreamer and I believe that by educating myself and informing myself well I can contribute to society. Someday I would like to have my own weekly show.

How do you handle family dynamics with your work schedules? In 2021 you started at 6:30 live with the morning news…

I woke up at 4:30 in the morning. At home we juggle, and the family is made of iron. In this profession I had to work on Sundays, at dawn, at night… and the family always adapted to my schedules. That they accompany me is key. My children grew up like this. Sometimes we have dinner at eight at night, and other times at eleven!

Since she was a teenager, Eleonora has been a regular in Patagonia, a tradition she kept when she married Carlos Corro some 25 years ago.  They have three children, Bautista (22), Jazmín (20, above with the journalist) and Elena (16)

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

Sport is essential in my life. My routine when I returned from the news continued with tennis or paddle tennis, and the rest of the days walking. I also take care of my garden.

–And during the holidays in La Angostura?

-At home we are athletes and our holidays are very active. I try to row every morning if the lake and the weather allow it, because it’s something I don’t do in Buenos Aires, I play tennis or golf with my husband. Afterwards we load the cooler in the boat and go to have a picnic on a beach, we walk along the paths. We like to fly fish, and if we catch a nice trout we cook it. We read a lot too. It’s like going back to another time.

-There they have very important neighbors, such as Queen Máxima and former President Mauricio Macri and his wife, Juliana Awada. Do you cross them?

–In general, you run into everyone, especially if you play sports. But it is a quiet place and everyone is respectful of privacy. I think that those who come to the south and do not go to Punta del Este, choose it for this theme of intimacy, in addition to the fact that our Patagonian landscapes are magical and impressive.
