Thanks for this interesting thread. Wonderful to see the improvements being made in the centre of B.A., without question South America's greatest city. Will be there sometime next year to see it for myself!

Muy buenas imagenes, aunque estas últimas aéreas poco tienen que ver con el titulo del thread. No es una crítica, solamente que podrían ir en el lugar correspondiente.

Uneven cobblestones are not the best paving for pedestrian streets.

I didn't understand those dismantled traffic lanes dotted with dull planters and no other purpose.
