My six week adventure begins in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It's a wonderful city, with a strong Italian influence (a big Italian immigration occured at end of 19th century and the beginning of the 20th).

 

I had just missed the the country's 200th birthday, a couple of weeks prior.

Buenos Aires features the widest avenue in the world, 9 de Julio Avenue.

Casa Rosada, the Pink House. It is the president's office, similar to our White House.

Puente de la Mujer (Women's Bridge) is a rotating footbridge, by architect Santiago Calatrava.

Empanadas and café con crema. Very Argentinean!

Kavanagh building.

Some of the sidewalks in this town are in serious disrepair!

The colorful and touristy neighborhood, La Boca.

I did a tour of the famous stadium of the city's beloved soccer team, La Boca Juniors.

Street tango!

La Recoleta Cemetery, one of the most prestigious resting grounds in the world.

One of my best meals of the trip. Eating steak at a Parrilla!
