“PARIS OF THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE”
01/30/2010 - 01/30/2010
A city of 11 million people – now South America’s largest, with European-influenced architecture, museums, parks and elaborate monuments. .
La Recoleta Cemetery in the midst of the city. Eva Peron’s body is entombed here in the Duarte family mausoleum.
The “Pink Palace” – picture Evita and Juan Peron making their speeches from the balcony. .
The colorful Boca district, with omnipresent Evita. Tango dancers perform on the streets in this fun and artsy (but quite commercial) community.
Lille Hästa finds her name (Soren has decided she must be a girl). Oh – and I had my hair cut in Montevideo for $8 – can you tell?
Talented musicians on the pedestrian street Florida.
A local company of Gaucho dancers performed before we sailed – all members of one family – see the mom and dad?
