I spent Monday wandering around Recoleta, one of the nicer barrios in Buenos Aires.  The highlight was, of course, the famed “Cementerio de Recoleta” where the rich & powerful are buried. Or, perhaps more accurately, enshrined.  🙂   cementerio de recoleta   evita’s tomb @ cementerio de recoleta   me @ evita’s tomb @ cementerio de recoleta   floralis generica. the sculpture closes its petals at night like a real flower.   outside the facultad de derecho   colonial style building in recoleta
