Today, I was joined by my expedition mate, Mr. Tyler Sanders. He comes from New York City! He will be with me for the entire month! I have not seen him since last year - good times and good friends with another Grosvenor Teaching Fellow!
Today we had a great mix of things. We went on a walking tour. This was a 45 minute excursion around the city blocks of our hotel. We were given some history of the wealthy families who made and owned mansions in this district. We had a tour of a very famous cemetery and saw the grave of Evita Peron. We went to an incredible cathedral, saw the President of Argentina's office. She is a woman! Then, we travelled to a colorful "shanty" district called, "La Boca." What a cultural day! Enjoy the photos!
