The weather the past few days has been beautiful - after a heat wave early this past week (as a result of which I have sworn off taking the subte - I'm still a bit traumatized after a some-stranger's-sweat-dripping-on-my-arm incident), it's been consistently in the mid 70s, sunny, and clear blue skies. Not wanting to stay inside, I went on a photo-taking stroll through Palermo yesterday. Here are some highlights...
These three were taken at El Rosedal, a rose garden, which is inside El Parque 3 de Febrero in Palermo. Thousands upon thousands of roses...I took a lot of pictures, but you get the idea. One of my favourite parts, though, is the security: if you so much as look the perfectly manicured lawn, a man with a whistle and shirt that says "Guardian" will yell at you.
A couple friends and I spent the afternoon here...not a bad day.
Most of the streets in Palermo are lined with these kinds of trees...whose name I should probably look up.
Che: el musical argentino. It worked with Evita, so why not Che?
