    Don't cry for me Argentina/アルゼンチンよ、泣かない

    January 24 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Still loved by many Argentinians today, Evita (Eva Peron) gave her famous speech from the Casa Rosada (Pink House). She is buried in the Ricoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires.
    多くのアルゼンチン人にまだ愛されているエヴァ ペロん(エヴイータ)はカサロサーダ(ピンク・ハウス)のベランダから有名になったスピーチしました。今はレコレータ墓地に理葬されています。

    Buenos Aires, Argentina

    January 26 in Argentina ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    We spent a fabulous day with tour guide Brenda Diaz who we found on the “Tours by Locals” website. She was extremely enthusiastic about her city and shared a unique viewpoint from an artists perspective when she learned of our interest in the arts.
    We saw many parts of the city, each with it’s own personality. The vibrant colors and richness of textures seemed to stand out to us.
    Also, the varied historical events and political upheavals lend much interest to the city.

    Buenos Aires, the Paris of South America, definitely is deserving of its nickname as the South American version of the French capital. I totally agree. The city is so sophisticated, fashionable, and clean and refined. It's quite beautiful, with Spanish colonial-era buildings as well as with art-deco and colorful buildings. And of course, it's famous for the tango.
    アルゼンチンのブエノスアイレスは [南米のパリ] と呼ばれています。この街は品があって、とてもお洒落で、綺麗です。ブエノスアイレスは[南米のパリ]と名付けられて、ふさわしいです。本当に美しい街です。スペインの植民地時代の建物があり、アールデコや色鮮やかな建物もあります。もちろん、ブエノスアイレスはタンゴという踊りで有名です。

    San Telmo Morning Walk

    November 20, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Today we spent time walking around the neighbourhood we stayed in, and the walk took us to San telmo which was lovely, we spent time looking in the many antique and crafty shops down the little alleyways and then found the central square, usually hosting a big antique market at the weekend! Unfortunately we missed it, but still had lots to offer with eatery places set up and street tango shows to watch over a coffee or cocktail 🍹😉Read more

    MALBA modern art museum

    November 18, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    After our walking tour of Recolata we took a long walk through a few parks to catch the shade with lovely water features that locals seemed to be full on swimming in lol 😂 (well you would in the 30°c + heat) We past a stretch of new and old buildings (mainly new tbh with lots of fancy restaurants with the ££££ or £££££ symbols when you search on Google maps!! 😂) Finally to get to the MALBA art museum that displayed many arts from modern 20th century pieces to newer Latin American art.Read more

    Palermo Street Art

    November 20, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    We took another free walking tour (actually we had to pay for this one; 600 ARP each.. Haha 😂 free you say?!) but it was worth it, we learnt alot about the graffiti culture within buenos aires. Artists work together on pieces, so there seems to be alot of respect between the artists not painting over art but instead making their creations work with what's already there... Which is really nice to see! Also they want to encourage more female artists to stand out as men usually take up the majority of the graffiti art here... about 80%! All in all we loved seeing all the different styles with in the neighbourhood of Palermo as the style is ever changing and very diverse, and also with the support of the government all for creative work spaces.Read more

    Du tango, du tango, du tango

    January 26 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Après un après-midi de repos à la piscine (eau de mer, 30°), nous avons pris la route du cabaret Tango, le Tango Porteno, un établissement « historique ». En fait, une grande salle genre Lido, salle et scène immenses. Repas standard. A noter toutefois la viande qui nous a été servie, un morceau d'environ 350 Gr. On est pas en Argentine pour rien.
    Le spectacle quant à lui était superbe avec une vingtaine de personnes, musiciens, danseurs et chanteur. La photo à 20€ avec une danseuse et un danseur...on leur a laissée.

    Ce matin, visite complète de la ville. En fait, trois quartiers: le centre ville où l'on retrouve les bâtiments officiels, la cathédrale, le palais du gouverneur (tout rose). Là, on se croirait parfois sur les grands boulevards à Paris, tant les bâtiments ressemblent aux immeubles Hausmann. Ce n'est pas une coïncidence, c'est un disciple du Baron qui a sévit ici.

    Puis direction du quatier de la Boca. Une sorte de Greenwich Village avec toutes ses vieilles maisons peintes de toutes les couleurs. Une débauche de bleu, de jaune, de rouge,... De la musique, des restaurants, des danseurs de tango et des gauchos qui tentent d'attirer les clients. Et des clients potentiels, il n'en manque pas. C'est une suite quasi inintérompue de cars qui se vident de leurs touristes. C'est Montmartres, Venise ou la Rambla de Barcelone. Il faut venir un jour où il n'y a pas de bateau dans le port.

    Enfin, le nouveau port, à l'est. C'est un quartier complètement réhabilité. On y trouve d'immenses promenades le long du canal, de beaux immeubles flambant neufs, des hôtels, des restaurants, des touristes...

    Et le quatrième tiers était consacré à la visite du cimetière. Oui, celà peut paraître lugubre, mais ce ne sont que des caveaux extraordinaires, tant pas leur taille que par leur style. Même le Père Lachaise ne joue pas dans la même cour. Ca sent l'ISF dans ces allées. Même le caveau d'Evita Peron.

    Tout à l'heure, on appareille pour Montevideo. Attention l'Uruguay, on arrive.

    Ici Buenos Aires, la cité du tango

    January 25 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Le sectacle d'hier au soir: une revue sur le thème de Las Végas, avec plumes et strings d'un côté, et torses musclés et dévêtus de l'autre.
    Nous étions déjà très proches de Buenos Aires quand a commencé le « récital » des passagers. Les chansons se sont succédées, de bonnes et de moins bonnes, voire très moins bonne qualité. Personnellement, ça a été, si ce n'est que nous ne ressentons aucune vraie amphatie de la part des animateurs (c'est pas Claudine!) et un public tellement disparate que la communication n'est pas simple. Plus de la moitié de la salle ne comprend pas un mot des chansons en français. Résultat des courses: comme chez Jacques Martin, tout le monde a gagné.

    Peut avant, nous avions doublé la ville de Punta del Este avant de rentrer dans le rio de la Plata, un immense estuaire qui sépare l'Uruguay de l'Argentine. C'est comme l'estuaire de l'Authie, avec Berck d'un côté et Fort Mahon de l'autre. Ici, c'est Montevideo et Buenos Aires... Sauf qu'entre les deux il y a près de 200 Km.

    Ce matin, réveil et petit déjeuner matinaux. Buenos Aires, nous voilà. Muni de notre pifomètre complété heureusement d'un plan récupéré à la dernière minute, nous avons errer plusieurs heures dans les rues les plus attractives (pensez, y-a des magnets..!) pour arriver sur l'avenue du 9 juillet (les Champs Elysées) et sur la place du palais du gouverneur. C'est là que les « grand-mères tournent chaque semaine autour d'un monument pour manifester contre le silence assourdissant des autorités sur le sort de nombreux prisonniers.

    Sous un cagnard d'enfer, retour au bateau pour un déjeuner tardif.
    En fin d'après-midi, nous partons en car pour un dîner en ville dans une boîte à tango.

    Buenos Aires

    January 24 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 84 °F

    Ok, today is going to be hot. We do not have any tours planned , except few days ago I managed to buy English tour to theatre Colon.
    At 9:00 AM we got to cruise ship terminal, and were planning to take Uber to the theater. To our surprise, our phones did not work. No Uber. We had to take taxi. First taxi driver asked for $20, second $10 and the third $7. So we took it.

    The construction of the present Teatro Colón started in 1889 under the direction of architect Francesco Tamburini and his pupil, Vittorio Meano , who designed a theatre in the Italian style on a scale and with amenities which matched those in Europe. However, delays followed due to financial difficulties, arguments regarding the location, the death of Tamburini at age 44 in 1891, the murder of Meano in 1904, age 44 and the death of Angelo Ferrari , an Italian businessman who was financing the new theatre. The building was finally completed in 1908 under the direction of the Belgian architect Julio Dormal who made some changes in the structure and left his mark in the French style of the decoration.
    It is considered one of the ten best opera houses in the world, and is acoustically considered to be amongst the five best concert venues in the world.
    We had 45 minutes very good tour. The theater is absolutely magnificent.
    We were done with the theater by 10:30 AM, but the museum we were planning to go next was opening at noon. Too hot to walk in the city. So we opted for another museum that opens at 11:00 AM.
    One of very nice young lady that worked at the theater offered us to call Uber on her phone (no WIFI in the theater). There is an option in Argentina to pay cash for Uber. She even made sure we are fine and in the car.
    So, we went to Museo National de Bella's Artes.
    This museum was established in 1895. Unfortunately, nothing is in English, but museum is very good.
    The ground floor of the museum holds exhibit halls housing a fine international collection of paintings from the Middle Ages up to the 20th century, together with the museum's art history library. The first floor's eight halls contain a collection of paintings by some of the most important 20th-century Argentine painters, including.The second floor's two halls, completed in 1984, hold an exhibition of photographs and two sculpture terraces. We spent a little over an hour in this museum. By that time the MALBA (Latin America Art Museum of Buenos Aires) museum that we wonted to go was already open.
    We decided to walk. It was really hot, but we made it. We were a little hungry and needed rest, we found a restaurant near MALBA museum and had a delicious small lunch with lots of water.
    With new anergy we went to the museum. The first floor is dedicated to the very impressive Latin American art of XIX and XX century and the second level is contemporary art.
    Very impressive museum.
    By the time we finished with this museum it was 2;30 PM. We still had time and energy for something else. About half a mile was a Japanese Garden and we walk to it. Very beautiful Oasis in the middle of the city. We enjoyed waking around the park, taking pictures. If not for the heat, we could spend more time there.
    We took a taxi back to the port. Time to rest. Tomorrow is another port.

    Day 18 - Penguins in Profusion

    January 15, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    The Eclipse docked in Puerto Madryn about 7:00 with bright sunshine and warm temps - forecast high of 89, today. We disembarked after breakfast and walked the long pier (half a mile) over the shallow harbor. Found our tour and boarded a 20-passenger bus for our excursion. We had a guide who explained things through an interpreter.

    Puerto Madryn was settled by Welsch immigrants in the 1850s. They were fleeing religious persecution and the Argentine government offered free land to Baron Madryn and his followers.

    We headed out of the city south on a freeway through gently rolling scrub plains. No trees, only low desert scrub - a lot like the desert southwest in Arizona. Stopped at a pull off next to the giant herbivorous dinosaur model. The bones of it were discovered about ten years ago a few miles inland. It is considered the largest dinosaur known. Stopped at a modern rest stop/gas station for relief then on through Trelew, a fairly large town on the Chubut River where there were actually trees!

    As we drove south, our guide offered us a sample of mate, a traditional Argentine infusion, in a mate cup. The cup is made from a hollowed out gourd decorated with local designs and chased in silver with a silver straw. Mate is a strong, bitter herb tea that locals drink all through the day. The sky had become a bit overcast with a mild breeze with temps in the high 70s.

    We turned off the (now two-lane) highway into the Protected Area of Punto Tombo. Our destination was the Magellanic Penguin rookery in the preserve, about five miles down a good gravel road. We parked at the visitor's center and walked along the marked paths and boardwalks among the penguins. This rookery is home to some 700,000 penguins! They were everywhere, basking in the sun, sheltering in their burrows, and walking to and from the Atlantic. Scattered among the penguins were small groups of guanacos, a llama-like browser found across the Argentine pampas. We took pics of the penguins and their three to six-month old chicks. Spent an hour and a half exploring and dodging the other 1,000 passengers from the Eclipse who had chosen this excursion. Back on the bus, the tour offered a box lunch before we headed back to the dock, about 115 miles away.

    One of the drawbacks of cruising is that the ship dumps 2,000+ people into sometimes small cities. Although there area usually several different excursions,
    there are always hundreds of people jostling to see the same sights. It can be frustrating. Occassionally another cruise ship is in port at the same time, compounding the problem.

    Back on the Eclipse, we relaxed a bit and watched the ship pull out of port. The evening show was a Russian violinist who gave a rousing performance mixing jazzed up classics with gypsy and modern tunes, a bit like the Celtic women concerts. Had dinner with our German table mates and chatted.

    Tomorrow another sea day.
