MISSING BUENOS AIRES

In wrapping up our lovely trip and going through almost 1,500 pictures.......it's been fun showing you all a fabulous trip to somewhere I have always wanted to go. When I first was telling friends I was going, they were like oh, noT Italy, or France, or England or a tropical location? Eventually yes...but the remaining two trips left on my list are now Budapest and Nairobi. We shall see. MM#1 Fan is a excellent travel companion, but truth be told I think he enjoys seeing my naked ass in the hotel. Anyho, there is this post left of various sights we saw, but don't really lend to a whole post, but were pretty cool to see none the less.

Iglesia Inmaculada Concepcion

Popularly known as "the round church" or "La Redonda",Another beautiful Catholic church. This church was built in the late 1800. and the inside is a must see
La Boca is a neighborhood of Buenos Aires.It retains a strong European flavor, with many of its early settlers being from the Italian city of Genoa. La Boca is a popular destination for visiting Argentina, with its colorful houses and pedestrian street, the Caminito, where tango artists perform and tango-related memorabilia is sold. Other attractions include the La Ribera theatre, many tango clubs and Italian taverns.  Outside this tourist area, be careful... it is a fairly poor neighborhood that had  many regular occurrences of petty crimes we think while we were sitting having dinner.But the place we ate was excellent. 
Embajada de Brasil
This is the residence of the Ambassador of Brazil.

The French Embassy.

Floralis Generica
This was so cool to see. I can't say I have ever seen anything like it. Floralis Genérica is a sculpture made of steel and aluminum located in Plaza de las Naciones Unidas and a gift to the city by the Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano. Catalano once said that the flower "is a synthesis of all the flowers and, at the same time, a hope reborn every day at opening."  It was created in 2002. The sculpture was designed to move, closing its petals in the evening and opening them in the morning.At night the flower closes, emanating a red or purple  glow from inside, and reopens ...is reborn... the following morning.
In one really wealthy neighborhood we walked through, we saw this guy actually polishing and cleaning the wrought iron gate that lined the street. wow.

This church is pure Argentine history, for those who have the opportunity to see it.... a not to miss guided tour. To give respect to the memory of his daughter, Felicitas Guerrero, known as the woman more beautiful of the Republic, his parents donated the construction of this beautiful church.... its architect was Ernesto Bunge and opened in 1876, to remember the fourth anniversary of the death of the young Felicitas. Among  one of my favorite churches and most impressive things, in addition to its Gothic style half mixed with many indefinable styles,
So that was the trip...All wrapped in  a two week tour! If anyone gets the chance or you have considered going.....GO!!!  By far the friendlies people I have ever encountered on my travels, and the culture and food, wine and sangria's out of the world. Another huge THANK-YOU to Adrin-O-M-G for showing us around for a couple days. You were downright so helpful, and kind to meet us not to mention dear...so handsome and sexy, you did have me swooning and tingling!!!! If anyone decides to go, as with any city, it has bad sections too, so just make sure to have a guide one or two days to take you around, or if your venturing out of the city, or take one of the many group guided tours the city offers.

I know I will never forget this trip. Even when departing I was trying to get back off the plane...

  3. I agree...this has been among your best trips yet. The architecture is just amazing and that huge flower!?!? Now that is cool. Beautiful post...it's been very interesting.

    But I have the feeling the architecture wasn't the only thing making you tingle...I think Adrino played a part in that.

  5. I know I too have enjoyed theses post. Love the pictures. The flower sculpture is beyond cool, that sunlight affects the opening and closing of the petals of this monumental. I'd dare say Argentine ingenuity at its creative point.

  7. From your post, the thing I learned is that Buenos Aires seems that the buildings are a mixture of cultures, with a lot of Italian and French designs. You certainly had a great trip...I'd miss it too.

  14. I'd be all over the La Boca section! Of your posts La Boca and your day in Uruguay were really spectacular. I don't know if I will ever get to Buenos Aires or not, but I know Williams and I would really enjoy seeing this town and all it's offerings. Thanks for so much for sharing it with us. The churches of this post are yet again fabulous. I can see why people fall in love with this town.

  19. I know that feeling of not wanting to leave or even wishing I could get off the pane and stay longer. It feels as if you left a part of your heart behind, but in reality you took a part of Buenos Aires away with you.

  20. It was a rather spectacular trip, I too will admit I never thought it would be that awesome and the architecture so jaw dropping. And some of those pub were very interesting. And that I saw your naked ass around the room, whom I too complain?

  24. Mistress you have brought back some many good memories from my own trip there. I didn't get to see the flower but does the concept sound nice. Buenos Aires is among one of my favorite cities. I also see Budapest is on your bucket list. Have been, and it's another fabulous city. I can appreciate your location of obscure locations to travel. Great taste.
