Welcome to the site...
It´s a bit ramshackle at the moment, and not easy to navigate in chronological order. But if you want to do it this way, then follow the path Arg (5 parts) - Uruguay - Brazil - Chile - Bolivia - Peru - then it should follow my trail.
Although this is strictly-speaking a blog, I have decided against describing every last detail of my time, and thought some pictures would do a better job. I hope you enjoy them.
Buenos Aires was my home from the start of the trip, and this building took up the entire block next to my flat. It's called the Palace of Water, and houses one of the smallest and least exciting museums I've ever seen.
This picture below shows a portion of a tomb at Recoleta Cemetery. It's where Evita Peron, among others, is buried.
Christmas, apart from being incredibly warm, was very low-key. Decorations like this were scarce. The chap to Santa's right is Carlos Gardel, a famous tango singer. I'm not sure what the gnome is doing there.
This flag was hanging in an artists' workshop.
The last two were taken in La Boca, which is home to Boca Juniors' stadium, and some brave use of colour.
