The Paris of South America

ARGENTINA | Tuesday, 7 July 2009 | Views [446]

I arrived in Buenos Aires and was awed by how big it is.  Thank God for subways!  I practically live in el subte.  I take it too and from class everyday.

Last weekend, I went to the famous cemetary in Recoleta.  It was like a little village for dead people.  There are rows and rows of small buildings that house dead persons.  This cemetary is where many of the famous and most important people were buried.  Some of the tombs had windows and doors.  I found one door that was not locked and I tried to open it (of course...am I asking to be arrested or what?) but couldn´t, so I peeked inside and saw furniture and stuff.  It reminded me of Egyptian tombs with tons of gold.  I guess people think they can bring material things with them when they pass over...maybe they can?  But why would you want to...  I went by myself and it was getting dark so I didn´t spend too much time there.
