San Patrick's Church

The "San Patricio" church is in the Coghlan quarter, near the Luis M. Drago railway station. You can see the irish inspiration of the architect in the red bricks and the stylized windows. It is not the only church in this style in Buenos Aires, but it is special for me because the parents of a special person got married there.
As the 17th of March is coming you may be wondering: "Do you do something special for Saint Patrick's Day in Buenos Aires?". The answer is yes. The irish community pays tribute to Saint Patrick and as the night begins thousands young people (of course most of them non irish) flood the streets downtown to go to the irish pubs and drink as much beer as they can. Sometimes there also are "free beer wagons" in the streets, handing out free beer.
