I arrived in Buenos Aires on Wednesday afternoon after being in Santiago, Chile for 3 weeks. It was an amazing time spent hanging with my mom and helping her also discover more of Chile. I'm glad we both go to find new places together. But now I'm in BsAs, Argentina and I cannot explain how happy i am to be here. I've been wanting to visit Argentina since I was a teenager. We used to have cable television and along with the service came FOX SPORTS AMERICAS and I would sit and watch Argentine soccer any chance I got. Now I'm here walking around, snapping pictures and taking in this amazing city. These are photos from Thursday.

The Casa Rosada is
Perhaps the most photographed building in Buenos Aires, the main presence on the Plaza de Mayo. The Argentine president does not live here, contrary to what many tourists think, but she does work here. (She lives in a mansion in Los Olivos, a suburb north of the city.) It is from a balcony of the north wing of this building that Eva PerĂ³n addressed adoring crowds. Geting an apartment rental in Buenos Aires is practical but maybe not so nice. I would recommend other neighbourhoods as Palermo or Belgrano that are quieter!
