We  bought this 6.25 L of water  for $ 2.50 to refill our 1 L bottles that we paid $ 5.00 for on the ship . The small bottles cost 12- 1/2 times as much as the large one !

On our first day in BA we left the ship on the bus . At the terminal we met our guide  Elizabet from Tours by Locals and our driver .

There was a lot of traffic but we didn't go far . There was a photo op with perhaps Argentina's most famous soccer star Lionel Messi .

Not far away was a HUGE  Ficus tree that needed a little support with it's branches

Well, I finally caught up.

Love your sunset pictures.

And that ficus tree - amazing.  I wonder how old it is?

The stained glass is beautiful.  I never thought I would like touring a cemetery, but now, maybe.

Thanks again for sharing with us.

 

Great , we do like our sunsets . I think that she said the tree was about 200 years old . We have something similar growing with our pine trees here . We also have 3 "spine babies " under some pine trees .
