Buenos Aires is an architecture lover’s dream. It’s part Paris, part Caribbean (to me), part colonial, and altogether unique. I couldn’t put my camera down for three days straight as I wandered the city!
I was positively enchanted by the streetscapes as we walked large swaths of the city. I have no doubt you’ll see why when you scroll through the photos below.

Spooky trees in the Recoleta neighborhood, near where Eva Perón is entombed.
