Buenos Aires, Argentina..........

Hello from Argentina - my first time ever in South America, 
and first stop on the way to Antarctica. This city is a hot 
place pulsing with color and tango music!
The beauty and warmth of Buenos Aires, often named 
"Paris of the South".

We were driven around both old and new sections of 
this vibrant city this afternoon.  
Thought you'd enjoy seeing some color before we reach 
the world of some green,
Definitely no tango dancing though!

Flying out to Ushuaia very early tomorrow morning.

    How very exciting all of this is. And what a colourful and fun looking city. Take care, enjoy and continue to post as and when you are able.

  11. Simply stunning shots! I'm so thrilled that you could share BA with us before heading South. You made me want to hop on a plane and fine myself a cowboy to teach me the Argentine tango.
    Strictly Come Dancing!
