WordPress for the iPad leaves a lot to be desired, especially when working with photos. I finally gave up with yesterday’s post, but today’s a new day. Here are a few more pics from the past four days. The last photo is the interior of the Teatro Solis, since WordPress refuses to publish my caption (grrr).
Colorful market on Calle Sarandi, the long pedestrian street
The talented female chef at our favorite restaurant, Jacinto. Note the yerba mate gourd and thermos to the left.
A couple of friends sharing a moment and yerba mate
At the Mercado Tristan Narvaja, a huge outdoor market held every Sunday. Note the dude in the background with his mate and thermos.
Love these doors – but have no idea what the ribbons are for.
At the Palacio Taranco, now the Museum of Decorative Arts. A nice place to spend a rainy afternoon.
John takes a shine to a beautiful tango dancer in the Palacio Taranco. She’s a little cold, though!
Monument detail honoring gauchos, Plaza Zabala
Valentin, our tour guide, told us the Italian designer of Plaza Zabala hired a local iron worker to create the fence – and then refused to pay him. In retaliation, the iron worker got a little creative with the fence design. Do you get it? Is it possible that Valentin was shining us on?
Museum honoring the 16 survivors of the terrible Andes plane crash in 1972. If you are as fascinated by that story as I am, this is a must. I had forgotten that the boys were from Uruguay.
One of Uruguay’s most famous landmarks, the Teatro Solis, completed in 1856.
