Buenos Aires: Parting Shots

Rather than order this blog chronologically I have grouped all of the shots from Buenos Aires right up front.  In reality we were there three different times.  We arrived into Buenos Aires, spent a couple of days before moving on to Calafate.  Then we flew back to Buenos Aires from the southern most point of our trip, spent another day and night before flying to Iguazu Falls and returned once more to catch our flight home.  In all we had 4 days in the city and began to feel very comfortable there, it is a good walking city if you like to walk but the sidewalks and streets are always crowded.

As I mentioned it is not a particularly attractive city so we had to really look for photo ops.  There are lovely little nooks and crannies but mostly narrow crowded streets and a jumble of architectural styles. Here are some random parting shots.
