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.

Modern building constructions all around.
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.

A merger of 7 shots for this panorama of this beautiful city.
These shots taken from the hotel upper floor showing the different views of the widest street in the world, and it’s not just any street. 9 de Julio Avenue is only 1 km long but 110 meters wide with nine lanes. It has up to seven lanes in each direction and is flanked on either side by parallel streets of two lanes each.
The Teatro Colon Building viewed in this image is the main Opera House in Buenos Aires It is ranked the third best opera house in the world by National Geographic.
At its widest, the avenue has twenty lanes of traffic if you include the side roads that ran parallel and also need to be crossed to make it safely to the other side. Here in the middle is a view of the famous Obelisk.
The building in the background which is the seat of the Ministry on Social Development, shows the portrait of Eva Peron delivering a historic speech at this very location, sixty years earlier. and can also be viewed on the opposite side.
Four lanes are used for Public Bus transportation with covered stop stations and I believe one lane on each side is used as an express lane with specific stops along the way, a more economical method used by the Argentine government versus the high cost of underground metro station.
Like many places, Rio does not escape the turbulent brouhaha created by overpopulated urban cityscapes. Traffic is heavy everywhere with a steady flow and the favelas as seen in the background are very congested.
Some art graffiti on a wall.
A favela in the background next to an affluent area is a common sight.
