The last post…I swear

Buenos Aires smelled like leather

argentina09 057

Mixed with perfume…and cigars. It was a heady, different smell

Argentina09 001

A city full of history…yet new. Few buildings over 100 years old

Buenos aires09 018

It was so big…we weren’t able to explore each barrio…

But enjoyed walking the alley ways of San Telmo

Where tango was on fire on the streets, and flea markets and antique stores were abundant

We took the subte to Recoleta…a tonier, Parisian like corner of the city…then Palermo

with it’s beautiful green parks and tree lined streets

…And to the cemetery where Eva Peron and many other distiguished Portenos now reside

Beautifully spooky…Where feral cats choose to be the living…

among the dead

And to the botanical garden…alive with color and sculpture

City of angels

~We spent a night dining into the wee hours at a Puerto cerrado a secret closed door restaurant

with 8 others…In the chefs home… a five course meal with wine pairing…great food. wonderful company

I have enjoyed each post IMMENSELY, and have taken lots of notes. Already bugging the Hubster for a long-weekend getaway to Buenos Aires - talking to an agent in 3-2-1...

Looking forward to Olinda one day, too!

Wonderful, glorious photos!!! Love the light bouncing off the wooden floor with the leather, LoVe the marketplace, especially the fruit and veggies, since that is all that I am allowed to eat. Would you believe they take points AWAY when you lose weight! Oh, yes, let's not forget the wine bottles! And you say those were just YOUR empties? One more vaca post please and thank you. Deb.

You are a fabulous photographer! And I just love how you write and the way you use font sizes - very effective.

Hope reentry hasn't been too difficult! That must have been a hard place to leave.

All three places are throbbing with life! Thanks for so beautifully expressing it in pictures. Inspirational!

Melissa said...

Wow! You won't hurt my feelings one bit if you want to do another whole week of posts with pictures!

I absolutely love that ray of sunlight in the first photo! And my favorite photos of all time usually involve street markets. The "piler and organizer" in me gets great joy in seeing piles of fruits, vegetables or spices.

Absolutely great photos, and it looks like it was a wonderful trip.

Blue Muse said...

Awww coming back to reality is such a buzz-kill. drat. These photos are so amazing, Linda - and what a soulful place! Your photos are amazing - I love the one of all the fruit and the angels and statues... Purr.
I'll never get the haunting words or image of cats living among the dead out of my head ever - you have such a beautiful way with words.
Welcome home sister-friend.
