Olivos, Argentina – March 2020 – Views from the 16th Floor

For five months we had the good fortune of having an apartment on the 16th floor overlooking the Rio De La Plata and the city of Buenos Aires. Little did we realize when we arrived the view would constantly change depending on the weather.

It became routine to leave the camera on the kitchen table to try and catch sunrises as we woke up each day. This long posting features the best of what Argentina weather and a 16th floor apartment overlooking a ‘river’ can provide.

The sun, water, clouds, moon – all shape the changing view.

Olivos, Argentina – March 2020 – Food Truck Friday

Each weekend a collection of food trucks gather in Olivos Harbor area, bringing good smells, music, fun people and colorful sights to the area. As with many things in Buenos Aires there is this interesting mix of English with all of the Spanish in the advertising and names.

Lets cruise on down in the classic Fiat to check it out (I wish it was my car!)

Buenos Aires – December 2019 – Random Scenes for the Last Days of the Year

With some spare time due to the holidays at the end of the year we checked out a few sites in the Recoleta neighborhood including a visual arts museum, which of course because of the holiday’s was closed.








The library itself was also closed. Good thing there are a number of public sculptures nearby.












The famed Floralis Generica. The pedals close each night and reopen in the morning.




Next door is the law school, which has a great lobby which was…closed.




The former design center.




A museum next to the Recoleta Cemetery. The museum was closed but the cemetery was open 🙂





Enough closed buildings, lets go hang out in Olivos Harbor.
















The setting sun gave a great ‘Olivoshenge’ – not quite Manhattanhenge, but still cool. And the sun has set on 2019!






Olivos, Argentina – November 2019 – The Sun, The Sky, and The Sea

The Argentina National flag features a sun, which is appropriate as the sun shines quite often here. The official presidential residence is in the suburb of Olivos, and the small, but well kept park on part of the grounds features a number of sculptures depicting this Incan sun from the flag.













Olivos is situated along the Rio de La Plata, which is called a river. It is a 30 mile wide river near Olivos and Buenos Aires, widening to 150 miles at the mouth at the Atlantic.

Olivos has a small harbor full of sailboats.






















It is also in the landing path of Jorge Newberry Airport.




With the ‘river’ comes great sunrises, with this photo an interesting mix of clouds, sun and ‘sea’.
