If staminous came vomiting these posts at any brazilian city thread, I swear to God, I'd insult until the last generation of his family...BUT, as he's referring to Argentina, I don't care Nah, nah, Im kidding hermanos!

What I have to say is that If Europe or Australia are so rich, why to keep getting worried with the fact Latin America want to show the World we do have little richness aswell? Ok, we have poor places, BECAUSE of the violent european colonialism over so blessed continent, and we're trying to correct the chart the best way possible, even knowing competition is tough. One fact we have to assume aswell, Argentina has poor places, aswell as Brasil has poor places. The poorest country of South America is Bolivia, yet this way, you never cannot compare it to any miserable country of Africa. And thats all. The day LA get enough richness to compete with Europe or any other developed country, this will bother many people. If the growth of United States in the 20th century bothered Europe, imagine the growth of Latin America.

Do you really think that? It's always easier to blame the others isn't it? I would blame your populist politicians, weak democracies and corrupt system. Look at Chile for instance, their are on the right way and are doing quite well.
I don't think the development of any country in the world would bother anybody, on the contrary, it would benefit its citizens and would open bigger markets for exports/imports.
Your last sentence about Europe is hilarious, you should get over all that bitterness. Reading more international press and listen less to your politicians would probably help.

Argentina used to be one of the richest country in South America but political instability with several coup attempt in the past followed by economic meltdown ruined the prestige of the country. Another problem like the rest of south America is the unequal distribution of wealth. While the rich become richer the poor become poorer and the gap between the two is widening apart.

I have been reading all the comments on 3rd page and dont understand so much the point of silly explanations that this forum users havent asked for...i posted all these pictures cause i love this city and i want to show the best of it , i live here for three years now and i still look at every single building everyday on my way to work , to my friends , or whatever i go...because Buenos Aires is magical...and those who have been here know what i mean...so lets finish bla bla bla and lets keep enjoying the goodness and beauty of my favorite city : B.A.

"Philadweller likes to criticize others participants, and he is always saying controversial comments about other people, I was one of the criticized by one of his comments."

I do a lot of complimenting as well. Buenos Aires is in my top ten must visit cities. So is Istanbul and Moscow.
The only reason I criticized you was because you do most of the posting in your threads and it is hard to look at threads one post at a time.
I also do not like looking at photos of Knott's Berry Farm and casino restaurants. I am here to inspect city streets, building and urban elements.
I do not appreciate the tourist perspective of things.

There are certain cities which I feel get more praise than they deserve and I will be there to point that out. There are also times when I can be ignorant too. Especially when it comes to cities that I have not been too. I have learned a lot from this forum and I find that it is important to point out the good and the bad. Every city has its problems and its merits. I actually like Detroit but do not like Las Vegas. Just my taste. There are people that think Philadelphia is hell on earth and others are terrified to go to NYC. I also despise amusement park photos and think Disney World is evil.

I have heard many positive things about Buenos Aires from people that have visited. I have also heard from others that it is just alright. I will form my own opinion when I visit. In the meantime all I have are photos to look at and assess accordingly.

I love to travel because there are places that underwhelm me and places that totally knock my socks off.

I do not adore every city that I have been to but I like something about every city that I have been to. Most Americans go to Canada before South America because it is closer, people speak English and most think it is safer.

I cannot wait to go to Buenos Aires but you won't find me going to Caracas anytime soon.

I look at as many threads as I can. One never knows what they are going to see. You never looked at any of my threads. At least I gave you that courtesy.

First, "latin America?" there is not such thing...

Argentina IS the richest country in South America....

Ok, now only Brazil has higher GDP (and only sincin the last 20 years...)

BUT they have 188 million people we only have 39 million!...

We still have the higher HDI from Central and South America...

not really.... There is an excessive lack of really rich people around here...

On the other hand most people is middle class (80% accordding to the last CEPAL numbers)... in BA pooverty is 7% and rich don't make mopre than 5%....

Tell me about it! there arelike 3 millions immigrants form that and other nothern countries here and they are like half of the poor people...

Thanks to all, for sharing your pictures with me.

I had read about the "Tigre" area in a fiction book once, and had no idea it was that nice. It reminds me, of the Trent Canal passing through the countryside of Ontario; and closer to home of the South Thompson River east of Kamloops.

(its too bad that others who are envious of your nice area, display their lack of good manners by making negative comments)
