Buenos Aires looks sweet. Staminous should stfu, Australia and Argentina have completely different cirumcumstances when it comes to history etc.. so I don't know why he had to compare the two.

Plus I don't understand why he glorifies the wasteful culture in Australia with people driving pointlessly large cars and living a pointlessly large houses.

Yes i do have a problem with your country's leaders. You've had corrupt officials, military dictators, fascists, family dynasties, all sorts running the country.They have been responsible for coup after coup, crisis after crisis, repression of the poeple, and human rights abuses.

There are memorials for the thousands of young men and women that have been tortured, bannished - never to be seen again - over the years. Mothers, sons and daughters still live with that pain. Maybe i should post some photos of this.

There were even more loss of innocent life with the Argentina Government going to war with Britain. Fighting over the Falkands. In that case, more innocent loss of life by a fascist government.

The periods of currency devalutation, double-digit hyper-inflation, political, institutional and economic crisis, just seem to continue decade after decade.

Even now, your country has one President, Nestor Kirshner, from 2003 to 2007, and then his "wife", Cristina Kirshner, takes over the presidency, in the October 2007 election. This situation doesn't sound right.

This IS the SAD reality behind these photos. And for this reason, Argentina DOES serve as a very important lesson to many countries. There are many people on this website that are Generation X and Generation Y. It is so important that they DO learn the history and reality of Argentina, so they can stand guard, for truth, honesty and personal freedom in the countries where they live.

It is vital, that the world learns from the Argentinian experience. My friend did comment that it is grossly sad that the average Argentinian guy drinking beers in the bar, just accepts these 'crisis', as a way of life.


I just hope that deep down you understand what i am talking about.
my frien ,,, my friend,,, my frien,,,, What is your problem?, Ít´s not even your country, so what do you care???,,,
And the corrupt presidents and dictators are in Europe too,,,, in Us too,,, what about Margaret Thatcher stealing a Island that dont belong to England ??? What about England does´n hearding even today to the consilation that was asked by the UN???
What about US killing people in Irak in the name of freedom??
What about the people dying because of this country¿????,,,,

Why do you atack us¿??,, like if Argentina would be what¿??
Don´t talk becUSE WHAT YOUR FRIEN SAID,,, MAYBE YOU´LL BE SOURPRISE TO SEE OUR COUNTRY,,,
I fell bad because of the people like you, that think to know it all without even know anythig about it!!!


Argentina Human Developmen Index is the 38th of the world and the best posicionated in America Latina !!!
Buenos Aires is the 13th richiest city in the world,,,
But, like you are such an ignorant I think that you don´t know anythig about it!!
And poor people are everywhere in Paris, Madrid, Londres, New York, etc, etc,, even in Australia!!!!!!!!!!

Giving political comments can be tempting, so I forgive staminous for that. Nevertheless, it's not appropriate to do so in a photo forum.
So thank you, mglouis85 and others, for your photos. They show a very pleasant city.
Don't think I'll visit it anytime soon, though, I hate flying.

I thought this site was supposed to be about photos of urban areas throughout the world so we can all learn more about how other cities look if we have not visited them before.
I think politics should not be included in this skyscraper city site as there
are plenty of other places for political rant!
Interesting site, showing another side of fascinating B.A.
I've not been there yet but plan to go next year.

I know and I agree with you Cameron , The Urban Showcase is about showing your pics froma trip or your city to those who are interested.. , i have seen pictures from places i didnt even know they existed and is just nice to realize how all these different spots arround the world look like , but as said by Groentje some feel tempted to bring politics in , well fos those let me say even in SSC theres a place to do so.., thnx a lot.

firstly, the pics are awesome and show a cool modern side of BA that i never knew existed, and tigre is beautiful.

as for that aussie guy bigging up his country's and other "new world" nations expansive lifestyles. what the F man! so no one lives in a 2 bed flat in sydney, melbourne or brisbane? and people outside of big cities in south america dont live in larger properties with huge amounts of land? did it ever occur to you that living in a small apartment is a necessary and worthwhile tradeoff to live in a vibrant city such as BA? just ask the many inhabitants of London, Paris, Tokyo & NYC for an answer.

and lastly the comments above which moved me to register with this website! whilst i'd agree there is plenty of corruption and wrong doing in every government and maggy thatcher was a horrible bitch, she never "stole" the falklands! she lead a government which sanctioned the liberation of British soil from an invading force. read your history, the "malvinas" have never belonged to argentina! the British settled there before the spanish and then withdrew without giving up sovereignty and then returned making a full blown colony.

by argentine reckoning, due to proximity the islands are theirs! i shall be sending an email to nicolas sarkozy informing him of the British annexing of France as its only 26 miles away!
