Buenos Aries

The time finally came for me to park Fred for a few weeks and tour with my sister through parts of Argentina and Uruguay.

One of the first things we did was take a tourist bus to get the lay of the city and all its sites. 

The memorial for the Falkland Islands war between Britain and Argentina can be found in the Central Park near the train station.

The central government building downtown.

We decided to make a visit to the museum of the iconic Argentinian figure Evita

This stove was in the kitchen where she housed the less fortunate. I just thought is was super cool looking. someone definitely needs to make retro version of this for there house.

Parts of downtown Buenos Aries can give you a New York feel with all the large neon signs.

Street performers on florida street demonstrating the tango. We still want to hit an authentic show yet. 

The large pedestrian crosswalks and architecture give the city that European feel everyone talks about.

Boca Juniors is one of the local football teams which we are planning to see. We had tickets for one game but with 90% chance of rain that day we opted out. 

Made a visit to the oldest coffee house in Argentina called Tortoni. The ironic part was I had tea and my sister had a class of wine. Neither one of us had coffee, but we may be returning as they have shows in a small venue.

The pedals of this flower close during the night an reopen during the day.
