Tour of the Town

On Saturday, I spent the morning checking out the sites, then John joined me when he got home from work.  Here's some of the highlights of our day on the town in Buenos Aires (minus the bird poop story, since I already posted that):

Beautiful fountain on Av. 9 de Julio

The Obelisk

Changing of the Guard

Bookstore located in an old theatre with a restaurant on the converted stage

John at Recoleta Cemetary

Eva Peron's tomb (Evita)

This tomb really intrigued me. It has a skull with other designs, and the cross on top is draped with fabric.  I wonder what the significance of this tomb is and what the fabric on the cross symbolizes? 

Beautiful plants blooming in the middle of Argentinian winter.

This one belongs to a former president of Argentina. 

Famous Banyan Tree in Recoleta

Musican playing in the park by the flea market

Floralis Generica Monument

Later that night at the Women's Bridge in Puerto Madero.  Can someone explain to me why something
this phallic is called the Women's Bridge?

John and I on the Women's Bridge on our way to a well-deserved dinner at El Mirasol after
a busy day of sightseeing.

Buenas Noches!
