This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
From Brazil I headed across the border to Argentina and then down to Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires has a lot of beautiful architecture. I spent a lot of time exploring Buenos Aires by foot.
On my wanderings I saw many market stalls and listened to street musicians.
One of the first buildings I saw was the Casa Rosada, the historic parliament buildings from which Evita Peron gave impassioned speeches to the masses from the balcony.
Across from the Casa Rosasa is a museum called the Cabildo which I popped into.
The displays covered Argentinian military history; invasions, revolutions, notable historic figures.
I also went to the Eva Peron museum which was full of her dresses and details of her ascent to power, Peronist social programmes and her continuing legacy.
I visited the museum of Latin American Art which contained a variety of artworks that dealt with social and political issues of particular importance to Latin America, colonization, political revolutions, inequality and social and technological change.
And the Museo de Bellas Artes which displayed a wide variety of artworks from international and Argentinian artists.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
