Since this site starts in Buenos Aires, the first post will be about this city of contrasts. The modern skyscrapers with business centers and offices mixed with the old streets, poor areas and slums. European heritage of Buenos Aires is shown in its architecture, parkways and parks.
The streets are mostly small except the big avenues.
Some roads have too many crosswalks so for cross the big street like Avenue 9 de Julio (where are five crosswalks) sometimes you should wait for three lights to cross the road.
Besides of the parks, which are everywhere, Buenos Aires has many trees on the streets and plants on the buildings. It feels like people live like in the jungle here.
Summer in Buenos Aires is hot and here are no beaches. The water which surrounds the city is dirty, however, it still has a great view.
At the night time main streets and touristic places in Buenos Aires full of light and especially at the weekends full of people. If you want to get some good shots in such places like Puerto Madero it’s better come during the week, otherwise there always will be people in the frame 🙂
One day did a short cut and walked back home through those narrow empty streets… Small shops closed early and people disappear, just from time to time there were the cars passing the roads.
This pinky hostel was a piece of the light and looked outstanding during that night walk.
The art is everywhere in Buenos Aires. It shows in buildings, sculptures and even in graffiti.
Some places very interesting decorated. Would you like to have some coffee here?
I couldn’t believe that this is the shopping center. Galeria Pacifico looks like a big gallery.
The currency in Argentina is very unstable. The better exchange rate will be at black markets rather than the banks. You can get there almost twice more Argentinian pesos. You will meet people who exchange money right on the streets and fast will learn a new Spanish word: Cambio, cambio! 🙂
