Parting Glimpses of Buenos Aires
Tour of La Casa Rosada
The inside of the elevator
Bust of Juan Peron
Cheesy Christmas tree photo, with busts of former presidents
Changing of the Guard between the Casa Rosada and Cathedral:
Signs in the Plaza de Mayo protesting the lack of recognition for veterans of the Malvinas (Falkland Islands) War.
Dating back to 1913, the Buenos Aires Subte is the oldest metro system in Latin America, as well as in the Southern Hemisphere. This is the inside of one of the original cars, which were constructed almost entirely of wood, and are still in daily use on Line A.
The famous Cafe Tortoni, in business since 1858.
Josh waiting in line.
Having our last bottle of wine in South America. A few hours later we headed to the airport to board our flight to Australia.
