We have been busy getting our affairs back in order since our return to the US, I've been dealing with the deadbeats squatting in my house. Finally got them out and am in the process of getting my house cleaned up and repaired. Had taxes to take care of as well as PENNDOT business with license and registrations. Had to get postal situation straightene out also. Judy has been working on her house and trying to stay warm this winter. It was 87 degrees when we left so this has been an adjustment. As it turns out I finally made time for this post. Our last few days in Buenos Aires were all about getting the bike shipped but we managed to see some sights as well.
The main drag through Buenos Aires- 12 lanes wide/ one way
This next series of photos are taken in Recoleta Cemetary, claimed to be one of the most beautiful in the world. Some of the most expensive real estate in the city. Rich and famous Argentines are buried here with the beloved Eva Peron being the main attraction. Google her name.
The crypts weren't exactly maintained so I took pictures inside these two to see what's up. The caskets are stacked five or six deep on three sides of the crypt.
The biggest rubber tree. 150 foot span
More trees found on our walk around.
This museum was mostly artifacts from trains or stations, no locomotives or train cars other than the small one below
We took a tour of CASA ROSADA,, the President of Argentinas House. Just walk right in, no metal detectors, no pat down, no being treated like a terrorist. The free tour was pretty cool. The only place we weren't allowed to take pictures was in the presidents personal office. (think Oval Office). Google Casa Rosada for further information on how it got the name
There was mostly art work to look at in the building, more of an art museum. This particular picture is two things. An indigenous mans head and face and a condor head.
Buenos Aires is known a the Pari of South America
And SADLY the adventure has come to an end. Here the bike is at the airport , palleted, strapped down and ready for shrink wrapping before the flight to Baltimore
