Buenos Aires, Argentina – Cementerio de la Recoleta

Standard

“Hello Buenos Aires!”

Dan and I have scheduled almost three weeks to sit back, relax, and yes work, in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires. We’ve rented a studio apartment in Palermo and couldn’t wait to start making more progress on our projects. However, we have set aside time to play and explore while we’re here.

Our first tourist destination was the Cementerio de la Recoleta. This 14 acres of cemetery contains the 4691 vaults, and the remains of Argentines most influential people. In fact some of the graves are so magnificent that they have been declared National Historical Monuments. I’m not going to lie, I really don’t enjoy graveyards… I find them creepy and feel like I should just let them rest in piece. However, this one was different. Perhaps it was the spectacular vaults or maybe the tour Dan downloaded to his iPhone, but this one didn’t seem so bad. Actually, I kind of enjoyed learning about the people buried there.

Below are some pictures from our sightseeing adventure.

p.s. I totally encourage you to read about Eva Perón’s (aka Evita) corps disappearance… it’s quite fascinating.
