Buenos Aires, Walking Round The City

H. and I did a lot of waking today. Took the subway to plaza de Mayo to see the big church, which was impressive. We then walked down to the harbor, up one side and down the other, looking for a good eatery for lunch. The place we selected didn’t live up to our hopes, but then did serve a decent beef carpaccio, and the shrimp I had weren’t too bad. There were two tall ships moored at the harbor. Those old sailing ships still hold a certain fascination in my heart. From the wharf we walked all the way back to our room, stopping along the way for ice cream. The day was cooler with a nice breeze so walking wasn’t as bad as yesterday. Still, we had to stay out of the direct sun as much as possible.

Florida Street, where all the money changers hang out.

A portrait of Evita Peron on the far building.

I would love to cross an ocean on a ship like this.
