2016 "Hitler in Argentina
Day 13 11 February (continued)
Sharkhunters President HARRY COOPER 1-LIFE-1983 spent the month of February 2016 on expedition in Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil and what he learned amazed even him.
What is this place?
In this photo array we walk around
the building to give a good all around idea of the size. In some
of these photos we see people, so you can get a good perspectives of the
size of the place. It appears to be four stories above ground and
there is also an underground section.
Note that this building is on a cliff
overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Why? Let's take a longer look and
get a perspective of the building, how and where it is situated on the cliff and
what can be seen from high up in the "Eye of the Eagle", the uppermost floor
which appears to be an observation post of some kind.
Let's look at the deck.....look out to sea. It is quite a vantage point.
|Photo above - we get an idea how high this is||Photo above - compare to the size of the people|
|Photo below - from the deck looking out to sea||Photo below - from the deck looking down the beach.|
In the photos above we see the size of this structure and we see what it was like to look far out to sea and also to look down the beach. Now we go down on the beach to get an idea how far the observers above could see.
|Looking northward up the beach||Looking northward up the beach|
|Looking northeasterly up the beach||Looking easterly, more or less, off the beach|
|Looking southeasterly down the beach||Looking to the south down the beach|
|Looking southerly at the cliffs down the beach||Looking at ..............the beach|
If you look directly up from the woman in the green chair to the bottom of the cliff, you will see an unusual object protruding out of the sand. What is it? What is it for? We do not know, but let's take a closer look.
What is this thing? What is
it for? Look closely at the lower right photo inside the red circle - the
number "35" has been put there apparently by a welder. Does that refer to
1935? Or something else?
As to the house itself...........or as it is known locally the "Eagle's Nest" - why? According to the accepted history, it was built in 1945 which itself, is quite interesting. Also according to accepted history, it was built for a wealthy Italian who was a bit eccentric. On the other hand, according to locals it was built as a lookout and//or a point of reference for German U-Boats and other vessels heading south to Argentina after the end of the war and the exodus of thousands from the crumbled Europe to safety and a new life. We may never know - but two years ago a group of neo-Nazis held a rally here. Strange? Or was it so strange?
We drove on to Punte del Este, the Monte Carlo of Uruguay or as my guide Martin described it - "M & M" country, meaning "Models and MILFs". Maybe he meant "Mercedes and Masseratis"? Let's see when we get there.......
