CAMPANA - A little industrial city of Argentina... my city.

Welcome to my city!! ...Or its virtual subsidiary :P
I hope you like Campana!

Short info by Wikipedia:

Campana is a city in the Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, in the Campana Partido.
It is located about 75 km (47 mi) from Buenos Aires City, on the right-hand margin of the Paraná River.
Its population is 94,333 inhabitants as per the 2010 census [INDEC].

Campana and Zárate make up an important industrial region. The city is linked to Zárate and the Zárate-Brazo Largo Bridge (and from there to Mesopotamia and Brazil) by Provincial Route 12.
The Pan-American Highway and the Mitre Railway Line links Campana to Buenos Aires, Rosario, Córdoba and the north of Argentina.

Most of the city's population consists almost entirely by descendants of Italian and Spanish (mostly Galicians) immigrants,
although there are other minorities such as Germans, British, French and Roms. In recent years there has been a slight increase
in population from East Asia (China and South Korea) and Latin American countries like Bolivia, Paraguay and Peru.

Very nice shots. Looks like my kinda city - small but not too small and a good atmosphere. How cold does it normally get in winter?

That day was -3°C.
The winters are usually mild, with extremes of short duration, but this winter the temperature was between 0°C and 10°C most of the time, with wind chill factor of even -5°C. The whole country was very cold, even now entering spring the temperatures remain low. There were only one or two exceptions, there were a few days where it reached 30°C! It was just after a period of freezing temperatures in July, where almost it snowed in my city (really very rare occasion in this area).

Thanks for the pictures. It reminds me a little of a small American city. It's strange how sporadic the highrises are in such a small city/town.

Really like it.

I like this city, the old architecture, city planning and being a self-contained city.
