Buenos Dias, Buenos Aires!

This is the Buquebus ferry I took from Montevideo. Btw, the ICBC building in the back is typical Chinese design, you don’t see many of those in B.A.

I walked about 1 km to my retro hotel

Familia Duarte. This is the tomb of Eva Peron. Here’s an interesting article by BBC. Apparently, Eva’s body had been taken from Argentina to Europe and was only returned 20 years later!
