BUENOS AIRES STREET SCENES - UNO


Aeropuerto Internacional Ministro Pistarini - The International Airport
This is the old, drab side (arrivals).


Same Airport
New side of terminal (departures).


Check out the tank in the trunk (yellow with jacket).
Taxis here run on compressed natural gas. Much cheaper than gas.

Yes, that is an old Ford Falcon!  This vehicle was popular in the U.S. in the 60s and was built in B.A. into the 80s. They still love 'em!


A little more rustic vehicle.  You see these from time to time.

 
Plenty of these still running around B.A., too.


The bus is the favorite way to travel here although they do have a subway.


 
Note the "tube" leading to the wheel hub.  That's an air tube to make sure the tires are properly inflated.  It's unique to B.A. & most busses have them.


Familiar logos. We saw mainly U.S. products from Chrysler in B.A.

 
Entrance / Exit from their subway "Subte."

 


Thousands of these little black and yellow taxis ply the streets.

 
Aeroparque Jorge Newbery - the "close in" airport in B.A. serving domestic and a few international routes like Uruguay.


B.A.'s favorite ice cream store - they're everywhere!

 
They have their fare share of these, too.


They've got one of these.


And hundreds of these - local places displaying fresh meat ready for the parrilla - grill.
That really was a tiny little suckling piggy.


Lots of trees in B.A. including many, many palm trees.


They love their statues in Buenos Aires.

  
The Israeli Embassy was destroyed in a terrorist attack in 1990.  This is a memorial to the more than 20 who died.  A tree has been planted for each person lost in the attack.
