An Excursion To South America: 21. Adios Peru, Hola Buenos Aires

In a span of just a few days I visited Argentina two times. During the first visit I was completely bowled over by its stunning Iguazu Falls after which I left Argentina for Brazil enroute to Peru just to re-enter it days later. I was eager to see more of Argentina and to find out what other things it has to offer. For that, Buenos Aires was definitely a good start.
We spent a whole day travelling  from Cuzco to Buenos Aires. After two flights and a long transit in Lima, I finally landed in the city. 
Hola Buenos Aires 
Buenos  Aires is the capital of Argentina. It is also Argentina's largest and most populous city. Interesting, vibrant and full of surprises this city is best known for its world-class operas and theaters, cafes and restaurants. It is also a city where the peoples' passion for tango never fails to fascinate me. Even if you can't do the tango, no one is going to stop you from posing with the tango pros!
My initial glimpses of Buenos Aires were from a moving bus. We were introduced to some of its spectacular monuments and buildings many of which were built during the 19th and early 20th century.Buenos Aires is often dubbed Paris of Latin America, a reputation it partly owes to its wealth of beautiful and classical buildings.
We circled around the city's hub passing through the city's main square, Plaza de Mayo which is lined with stately 19th-century buildings. Casa Rosada is the venerable, pink-colored palace that houses the presidential office.
The Teatro Col√≥n is the main opera house in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is ranked one of the best opera house and concert venues in the world. 
There are many other prominent landmarks and all are impressive and imposing works of architecture that depict the history of the city.

Interspersed among the old are the contemporary buildings.

The most bustling area I saw is Recoleta's commercial center aka Barrio Norte. This part of the city is robust, teeming with people and congested with long lines of vehicles.
