As we came ashore we thought that it would be interesting to revisit some of the places that we went to in 2013

We ate at this place in 2013 at almost the same table ( It was air conditioned on a very warm day )

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

Amazing tomb markers. They are too ornate to refer to them as stones.

 

Our guide told us that it was the most expensive real estate in Argentina . Over a million dollars a plot currently .

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 .
