It wasn't all steak, ice cream and shopping (even if mostly it was). Buenos Aires is home to beautiful old buildings, national monuments and history at every turn.
|La Casa Rosada (the Pink House)|
Eva and Juan Peron made their famous speeches from these balconies
|The fountain in front of the Congress|
|Congress, in profile.|
|Scenic tree-lined park.|
|The church was gorgeous inside.|
|Statue celebrating Argentine independence.|
The red and white flag in front is totally random.
|Love the jacaranda trees|
|The A Line is the oldest subway in South America.|
This is an original wooden subway car, still in use today! Over 100 years old.
|Cafe Tortoni, the most famous old cafe in Buenos Aires.|
|Mausoleums at the Recoleta Cemetary.|
I love the hobbit one on the right.
|Posing with the life-size statue of boxer Luis Ángel Firpo (AKA "The Wild Bull of The Pampas"), outside his mausoleum.|
|The streets of the Recoleta cemetery|
|And, of course, any good walking tour ends with a delicious ice cream|
