This is Buenos Aires, Argentina today

When you arrive in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, its beauty is apparent with elegant architecture, wide tree-shaded boulevards.

Old and new building constructions in many areas of the city.  This building which occupies its own city block, has recently been renovated to be used as bank offices.  In the past, it was responsible for the distribution of the yerba mate—a traditional, South American bitter tea.

Nice Old Building with plenty more like this one to make your head spin.  Undoubtedly, BA deserves the label “Paris of South America.”  It has this distinct European flavor.

Tango Dancers of La Boca, Buenos Aires MG_0050

I would be remiss if I don’t place a word about Tango, which plays such a big role in Argntina.

Open-air tango dancers that entertain patrons at the outdoor cafes.  Known as the birthplace of the tango, this one-time shipyard has a famous walkway, the Caminito, where tango dancers perform and artists exhibit their work.

Anxiously waiting for his partner, while below a quick lesson of tango to an interested tourist.
