A 3-Week Stroll Through Buenos Aires – Day 9

We venture onward.

There she is, the Puente de la Mujer.

In English: the "Woman's Bridge"

I want to stay there.

If you look real close you can see James and Kristin in that life preserver.

Place was gorgeous.

I was floored to see this. For whatever reason, I really didn't expect to find a Hooters down there.

The next couple photos show the Presidente Sarmiento, an old Argentinean naval ship that’s been converted to a museum.

Pew! Pew! Pew! You can actually see this little dude making sound effects.

That’s all for today.  Tomorrow we venture home and stroll past the Ministry of Defense building and catch the sunset and some street performers at a huge outdoor market….

A 3-Week Stroll Through Buenos Aires – Day 8

So today James, Kristin and I arrived at the the Puerto Madero Waterfront.  One of the better known and posher little burroughs in Buenos Aires.  The waterfront area is populated with old warehouses, cranes and industrial buildings that have since become obsolete and converted into restaurants (including some of the straight up best steak houses around, and ya know, Hooters), shops and generally what you’d expect from a high-traffic, high- tourist area.  Regardless, an incredibly pretty place to go for a stroll and grab a bite to eat.  Here ya go.

That's impressive. Relativity can kiss this place's ass.

More pretty glass-faced buildings.

The area's expanding quickly, the horizon was full of construction cranes....

So I guess they'd taken a lot of the old navy ships from different time period and converted them into museums. There were a handful of these old pirate-lookin ships around.

The rich people's yachts. I bet that would be fun.

That’s all for today.  Tomorrow we’ll be continuing our walk along the waterfront.  There will also be some pictures of the beautiful and quite famous Puente de la Mujer, the pedestrian bridge that crosses the river.  Word.

A 3-Week Stroll Through Buenos Aires – Day 7

The local football club was playing nearby. That red bus there was full of the hooligans.

Kinda crazy, they were hanging out the doors of the bus singing all the team songs and shit. Never seen anyone do that for a Broncos game....

That lady's getting herself a ticket.

Arriving at Puerto Madero, one of the prettiest, and trendiest, areas we visited in the city.

Pictures of the Rio de la Plata and the Puerto Madero Waterfront coming tomorrow.  Stay tuned….
