I start this thread with a picture of Catalinas area , its basicly the financial district of Buenos Aires...


Puerto Madero : Once the place in Buenos Aires where you should never go...now the highlight of the city porteña...


















A view of downtown from Puerto Madero parks...






El Faro , Le Parc Puerto Madero and Renoir towers...



The second Renoir tower just started being builded...






The Repsol YPF tower almost finished now...







This is downtown from Plaza de Mayo...










San Martin square with the Malvinas monument ( falklands ) no big deal for me...


Recoleta...

Excellent thread. I am planning a visit to BA in October 2009. Will be spending two weeks there. This gives me a flavor of what to expect. Thank you! :)

PS. I cant wait to go- If I could Id be there tomorrow!

by the time you get to B.A. most of the towers in Pto Madero will be finished and shinning...you´ll be able to make some really nice shots as well :)

Isn't this the area where Eva Peron came back from her trip to Europe?

that area of the city looks splendid, but I know BA has some less fortunate neighbourhoods, like the one where "La Bombonera" is situated! These photos must be of the area where River fans live!

Overall, a very good quality thread, good job!

:colgate:thnx...Sure B.A. has got some "less fortunate" neighbourhoods...dont forget we are in Latin America..the developing world...allthough the poor parts of B.A. dont look so different than the ones in Madrid for example...poor areas look the same everywhere...just dont find them atractive for pics...:)

Are you sure of that? Because poor neighbourhoods don't look the same everywhere and don't come in the same quantity. And I am not talking about the aesthetics of a certain place...

Great picks by the way, Bs As looks stunning and majestic!

:) thnx Avientu...you are right...they dont come in the same quantity..what i meant to say is that even in the developed world like in your country...cities are not all glassy and nice...and i mentioned Spain because i know about the situation of the morrocan and romanian minorities...and i´ve seen them gettin evicted of their poor places cuz it was invaded....and thats not too far from what it is in Latin America...
i know that case in particular but for example in NY there are also some areas
like Bronx and in LA the low-hoods where the police dont want to go...

no comparison when it comes to matters like the poor pleople PIB and other things...:doh: hehe i just felt silly cuz talking about this wasnt the idea of the forum...so forget it all!...:)

The Repsol YPF tower almost finished now, is a baby from Calatrava the spanish thats building the Chicago spire tower
Really? I was sure that it was from Cesar Pelli, the Argentinian that built the new World Trade Center and the Petronas Towers


dont forget we are in Latin America..
I'm not even sure if there is such thing as "latin america", in the sense that for example an average Argentinian know of the very far away Mexican or Colombian culture as much as an average French or Canadian man and the other way aorund. Or for example a Brazilian about let's say Honduras...

Hello thnx for posting..:) yes you are right i ´ve confused the guy...but thnx to guys like you we all know the real name..
and i wasnt talking about argentinians as latin americans , i was talking about Argentina and Buenos aires being part of Latin America..i´ve been in Mexico , I am from colombia , i´ve been in honduras and Brazil and many other countries...and Buenos aires now is part of the whole thing..Argentina once was a contry standing apart from the others...and it´s still one step ahead...but now you can tell the contrast between rich and poor...THE CONTRAST , thats what these countries in Latin America have in common...try Lima , Bogotá , Tegucihalpa , Sao Paolo , Monterrey even Santiago...and contrast can be the main conclusion...so yes...now Aregentina is part of LATIN AMERICA .
