    Congreso Park

    by mannymiami Updated Feb 2, 2003

    I never thought about feeding pigeons I guess cause the pigeons in large cities in the USA are like rats with wings and they carry disease, but here in Buenos Aires they where very healthy and clean looking. I had a great time here in this picture feeding these birds.

    Congreso Government Building

    by mannymiami Written Feb 25, 2003

    This is the Congress Building of Argentina. Its a very beautiful building like many in this great city. There are several plazas with beautiful statues and there is an area where people feed the pigeons and there are street entertainers as well.

    This is Argentina's parliament building and with its dome it looks quite special. Many say it bears a stark resemblence to the US Capitol. Well, you decide...

    The park was right in front of the Congresso building. It would be a nice park if the fountain wasn't gated off and there wasn't tons of homeless people milling about.

    Congreso at dusk

    This is the present seat of government for the Argentine Republic. If you come here during the day, there's probably a good chance that you'll run into a lot of piqueteros (protesters).
