I am not involved in any criminal activity

Again, I saw lots of tourists. There is a touristic bus that has like 20 stops that pretty much covers all the main touristic spots in the city. All the touristic spots have police presence and they looked pretty safe to me. However, I would take some precautions and leave all expensive jewelry and cash in the hotel.

The Zoo...

The Buenos Aires Zoo was inaguarated in 1888. It is an old zoo so I went there more to check the old cages architecture than the animals, but in the end I also enjoyed the animals too. One thing that is very different to US zoos is the fact that you can feed the animals. That generates a lot of interesting interactions between humans and de dwellers of the zoo...

Entrance to the Zoo:



Old cage architecture:



Some Zoo dwellers are allowed to run loose:




Grand old cages:



Cute old structure:



Another really oldie:



Grand old pavilion:



Greek looking old cage:



Zebra with arabic looking cage:



Old Pagodas and Rhinos:



Old Cage:



Ostriches and giraffe:



Very old lion cage:




Zoo's old pagoda building:



Kids feeding the goats:



Asian style old cage building:



Girl feeding the llamas:



Chalet and Bisons:



Monkey cages:



Water spout:



Old cage design:



Elephant and Indian looking old cage:



Cute bridege:



Black eagle's enclosures:



Exiting the zoo with view of city beyond:

I am loving my new home! From someone who lived outside Buenos Aires and just like any other Argentine outside this city, we are bombarded by the news of Buenos Aires. I felt the previous year when I came that everything was not safe -this is a commonplace belief among my family and friends and many other fellow Argentines- but when I came here I realized that it wasn't as shown on tv yet you have to take the right caution/safety measures in a big city. It'd be convenient to ask the local folks to tell you where not to go alone at night.

PS: I have to go to the zoo!

Wow, such an amazing and impressive city on so many levels - you really get a feel for it in your pictures. And no wonder it's called the Paris of South America, gorgeous buildings galore. Thanks.
