SHARKHUNTERS International
2010 Argentine Expedition - we continue in Buenos Aires


We continue our walking tour and visit the Argentine ship URUGUAY, a memorial here in the city.

 

     
 
     
   
Memorial Plaques aboard the Corvette URUGUAY
     
 
     
 
     
 

The Skipper's uniform, his dress

 

 sword and other memorabilia.

     
   

After our visit to the corvette URUGUAY - more food!  This time along one of the canals in the heart of the city.  Buenos Aires is a great place to enjoy eating.

 

The beautiful Buenos Aires skyline and an equally

 

beautiful Portenea grace our view.

     
 

Naturally, we visit "Los Bocas" - sort of like Old Town (Chicago) or Greenwich Village (New York) which is a tourist area where not much is left to the imagination.

 
     
 
     
 

Memorial plaques and folk art are

 

everywhere in this neighborhood.

     
 
   

"Evita" on the left, famous tango dancer on the right.

     
 
     
 

With the typical gaucho family,

 

everyone performs - even the kids (above and below).

 
     
 

Another dancer readies herself

 

 while people relax with great food.

     
 
Not a local drink - it's Coca Cola!   COOPER likes the dancers........
     
 

The dancers here are great;

 

and there is plenty of food as we watch.

     
 
We tried to recruit this gaucho into Sharkhunters.....but.....   More brightly colored store fronts

And now, COOPER

 

decides he wants to dance..........

 
"And ah ONE and ah TWO....follow me"   Fred Astaire - eat your heart out!
     
 

It is a toss up as to who is enjoying

 

this the most - but they are both smiling!
