Nothing like a city to give you a jolt of electricity after exploring some wilderness! And Buenos Aires is a major city in every sense of the word! Dubbed “The Paris of South America”, its gigantic and ornate buildings from the 1800’s mingle with run-down dwellings and lovely modern structures.
There are many distinct districts or neighborhoods, each with an appeal of its own, from artsy Palermo Soho to Ricoletta with amazing churches and a cemetery unlike any other I have seen. Evita is buried here, yet her presence still dominates the hearts of many in this city. I can hardly do justice to Buenos Aires in such a short post, but sharing some of my favorite pics, from street art in San Telmo, to colorful homes in La Boca to the majestic Colon Theater. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention the large steel flower sculpture, Floralis Genérica, that blossoms towards the sky! We stayed in the city for more than a week while I attended an amazing workshop that I will tell you about next!
