La Recoleta, Buenos Aires - Cape Of Dreams



My second day in Argentina was Monday, June 27. I spent the morning and early afternoon in school, and then Sofi and I started out towards the Fine Arts Museum. When we got out of the subway, this building was right in front of us. In Mexico, I showed you a building covered in fake grass, but this one actually has living walls. Arredo is a home goods chain, and all of the stores are shrouded in plants. I saw a number of them throughout my visit.

My second day in Argentina was Monday, June 27. I spent the morning and the first part of the afternoon in the school and when the classes finished, Sofi and I ventured towards the Museum of Fine Arts. When we left the subway, or subway, as it is known in Argentina, this building was across the street. In Mexico, I showed you a building covered in fake grass, but this one had living walls. Arredo is a goods company for the house and all the stores are wrapped in plants. I saw many of the shops during my visit.

This was an old church that was bought by a university. I would like to take class here.

This church was bought by the university and now students have classes there. I would like to study there.

The entrance to this shopping mall was awesome with the water fountain.

The entrance to this mall is impressive with its cascade source down the ladder. Do you think we could do something like that on the stairs in front of our house?

Right across the street from that mall was the Recoleta Cemetery. I have always loved cemeteries, and we decided to stop since we were literally walking right past.

Across the street was the cemetery of Recoleta. I've always liked cemeteries, and we decided to go in as we were passing directly in front of us.

Not only was the cemetery, but there were cats there as well. I feel the photos blurred, but my camera could not focus well with the cats moving and the rain. You should not feel bad about the cats that live in the cemetery because they were some of the fattest I've ever seen. There was food for them in various places.

We found Sarmiento's grave right away. He was an author and president of Argentina.

We found the tomb of Sarmiento, the author and president of Argentina, immediately. There were signs everywhere going to the place.

After that we started wandering around looking for Eva Peron's grave. After visiting Sarmiento, we look for the tomb of Eva de Perón.

After visiting Sarmiento, we look for the tomb of Eva de Perón. We saw many crypts of famous people, but that of Evita eluded us.

Some of the serious ones were extremely ornate, while others were in complete disrepair. Some of the tombs were very ornate, but others were in very bad condition.

A few of the graves had visitors. This guy was camped out on this monument drawing.

One of the tombs had a visit. This man is very comfortable here in this monument drawing.

This lady and her dog were really creepy. She seemed to be crying.

This woman with her dog made me shiver. It seemed to be crying.

I loved this tomb made of unpolished rocks. / p>

After almost an hour, we had not yet found Evita and we were losing hope of ever finding her. We were not the only ones looking for her. Many people asked us for directions. At last we returned to the entrance of the cemetery to find a map. There was one, but still we did not find her until I thought to look for her with her last name and not her husband. Just in case you need it, it's called Eva Duarte. In the end, we find its crypt very close to Sarmiento. It was anti-climatic once we arrived.

I am glad that we made the detour to check out the cemetery. I had been high on my list of places to visit, so it was the first that I went to.

Despite the rain, I am happy to have gone to Recoleta . It was one of the places I most wanted to see and it made sense that it was the first one I visited.
