Here are some glimpses from our first few days in Buenos Aires that we didn´t have the time to get online earlier..

"La Bombonera" - Estadio Alberto J. Armando - Home of Club Atlético Boca Juniors
Considerably smaller than River Plate´s stadium, but word is because of this the atmosphere is much more intense/better. Might have to see for myself as Boca Juniors (sitting 11th in the table) plays Independiente (6th) this weekend.

No shortage of time pieces in the Plaza de Mayo. Quite the panoramic from the water fountain in the plaza center.

The "Casa Rosada" or "Pink House" which connects the east end of Avenida de Mayo with the west end and the Congreso de la Nación Argentina.

Congreso de la Nación Argentina

Some pretty stellar graffiti outside the art school on the corner of Maipú and Lavalle..

..a closer look.

Unfortunately, this facility (totalling about five courts, all underneath a freeway) is part of a local high school. No gringos allowed - actually the courts are open one day a week, but not the right day for me!
