B.W. in B.A.

We’ve been hanging around Buenos Aires… mostly in Lanus, actually… and working on some projects.  All new CV boots and one CV. New rear shocks… yep, more shocks. It’s been a week already. Time flies when you’re under the bus.

Fortunately, we’ve been hanging out with new friends learning to appreciate regular mate breaks. Our new friend Rodi has been hosting us – we’ve got the top popped in his workshop. The place is fitted out with a living and kitchen area, so we are quite comfortable. We just have to squeeze past a few VWs on the way to the bathroom.

Lanus is a short train ride and metro ride from El Centro. We’ve managed to go downtown twice and meander the city. Definitely a European-style “cafe culture” and a big city.

Buenos Aires is one of the top 20 largest cities in the world. Number 17, by some counts. Now, you know.

    Looks like a great place to hang around. They’ll never let the memory of Evita be forgotten.

    Barfy Burgers – LOL!

    Wonderful photos — loved the “Grandmother’s March” & the scenes of everyday BA life..In photo 17, what are the bowls & strainer-like spoons for?

    Pat-

    Those are the “Mothers of the Disappeared” and they have been marching every Thursday for 30 years. Somehow, the march now includes the newly-contentious Falkland Islands too (it’s an election year here, and ‘patriotism’ is used as a political tool just like back home)

    the gourds and straws are for matethe national habit.
