Buenos Aires, Argentina Part 1

We have been back in the United States for two weeks now.  It's been a hectic time running around taking care of various things from banking, postal, house, getting the motorcycle, etc, etc.  We also have had to deal with the change from 87degrees in Buenos Aires to freezing temps and snowstorms in Pennsylvania.  Finally taking the time to post the first installment from the final days of our trip.  In no particular order these are just pictures from around the city,  mostly self explanatory.  There will be at least one more post after this one so keep checking back.
