I embark on my 22-hour trip to Buenos Aires. The first seven hours take us through the Andes...
Mountains Majesty

Lots of nice views from my window seat.

If you can't go around the mountains...what the hell, just go through them.

The civic center of Buenos Aires, and my first stop in the city!
Casa Rosada

Wei-shiuen, my friend and touring companion, and I at the president's powerhouse. Evita made her famous balcony speech from this building.

The Madres de la Plaza de Mayo were demonstrating that day. They covered the plaza with photos of their disappeared children and grandchildren.

No al Pago de la Deuda
The Madres have taken up the cause of their kidnapped children...they protest against paying off the national debt.

It must be lonely on top of that pedestal.
La Boca

This working-class neighborhood is famous for its colorful houses.

What's Buenos Aires without some tourist-trap tango? Street performers entertain diners in La Boca.
El Caminito

The houses are so brightly colored because the residents used leftover paints meant for ships in the nearby harbor.

Parrillada
It's a crime to visit Buenos Aires without sampling the succulent "parillada" (Argentinian barbecue).

Delicious yet cheap
Savory, tender, juicy
Worthy of haikus
