I´m going to have a short winter recess and not post for a week or so because I have tons of work and study to survive first. See ya all!!
Gas station in a nice nighbourhood with statue in the back.
Vamos Vamos Argentina!!
Highly optimistic!! C´mon Argentina we´re gonna win!! Publicity on the highway. Today plays Argetina vs. Holland!!
While drinking coffee I encountered this amount of hair sitting next to me. Had to take this pic!
Yesterday I had dinner at this fabulous mexican restaurant, I got there a little early (9 pm) ´cause I was very hungry!! but at 11pm it got all filled up! Viva Mexico!
Getting rid of old habits...
I really want to concetrate on my dieting, but it´s kind of difficult to get rid of old habits!! Lemonade for example...it tastes like heaven at this place called Mark´s in Palermo.
The fly and the sky
Flies are definetely my favourite models....
The Serbia-Montenegro vs. Argentina match just started!!
And these construction workers won´t be working for the next 2 hours. I took this pic prior the Argentinian goal 2 mins. after start.
Dutchie must be waiting anxiously for the next game: Holland vs. Ivory coast!!
Pizza is one of those things you feel compelled to eat even if you don´t want to... Buenos Aires has created some special pizzas with city style: the Fugazzetta (with onions and cheese) (which is very tasty) and one with palmitos (palm tree hearts and salsa golf (made of ketchup+mayonaise), (yuk!*)
Still I prefer the one and only pizza with muzzarella!
He creeps the hell out of me... I didn´t take this pic on a farm or anything...some of these actually live in Buenos Aires.
On the hunt
This dog is looking for his next meal, a real Delicatesse: pond duck. Today it´s raining...I hope it´s just for today!!
Los bosques de Palermo
These is one of the spots you can go to to relax in this city. These are artificial lakes with lots of trees aroud them where you can just sit, walk or fish like this guy (but there are no fish in these lakes, all he´ll possibly fish is an old shoe)
Rollin´, rollin´, rollin´
Weekends are the special days where you get to see things like these: people taking thir car for a drive. This one looks great!! (taken on Av. Libertador)
This is not Mariah Carey related!! I just love butterflys and I can´t believe I managed to get this macro going!!
Looks like rain
Look at the sky...another rainy day in Buenos Aires. Winter is coming, i don´t mind the cold, but the rain I do dislike!!
Buenos Aires' golf course
This is the public golf course of Buenos Aires, you have to bring your own clubs and pay areasonable fee, know how to play and you can use it. Most people don´t so they watch, like me. Are any public golf courses in your town also?
These street performers, usually kids that learn the skill so they don´t have to beg, performe in front of cars every day. This guy was juggling 5 balls at the time, something I never saw before, too bad I just caught two of them on camera. Do you have similar street performers in you country?
I really don´t know where the parrots in Buenos Aires come from, but a couple of years ago they started to appear in parks all around town, they don´t even mind the pollution!!
This flower was built by a famous ( I think he´s from Catalonia) architect and is now located next to the law faculty in a huge park in the Recoleta neighbourhood. At night the flower closes and is illuminated by soft red light.
I made it to my 100th post!! And to celebrate this huge bow of a newlywed´s car!! I hope I can shoot another 100 more!!
Something else is also falling apart
One of many of the colectivos that populate the streets of Buenos Aires, this one, well, doesn´t look so good.
The Colón Theatre recontruction
The Colon Theatre, our most important opera house is falling slowly apart. They are reconstructing the fassade and I think there is a proyect to close it down for a year and do recontruction work all over it. They also wanted to build and anphitheatre outside, but I guess it´ll take a while till then.
This is the Cervantes Theatre on Av. Córdoba. This is our most important Nacional Theatre where classic theatre is often represented.
