"El planetario" is located in Palermo. There you can see planets, and when something happens in the sky, you can watch it from there!. A lot of ducks live in the lake, also photographed. When the sun shines, and when it's summertime, it's great to go there and feed the ducks!

Puerto Madero is full of restaurants. It's also becoming one of the best places to live, because the bulidings there have almost 50 floors!. The photo shows where Puerto Madero begins. Not too far from that, are those great buldings I told you!. It's great!.

"El Obelisco" is very old. "El Obelisco" was built in May 1936 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the first founding of the city. It's located in the centre of the city.


Hope you enjoyed this "mini-tour". Do you like the photos? Which place would you like to visit?

I am sure to visit this beautiful Argentina one day. What language do you speak? Is it commonly English, does everyone speak it? What is the language you speak with others and your relatives?

Hey Stephie
I loved all the photos, if I were to visit the beautiful Argentina, I would be lost for choice because of all those extraordinary places... I would go TO ALL OF THEM!! ;) Plus, I cannot believe you talk Spanish sister.. I am so surprised because Spain is my favourite country and to see that you speak it is awesome.
You are special Stephie. And you are a wonderful person, who learnt English so well from 8 years old to now.
Could you tell me what Hello, bye, miss you and hugs mean in Spanish? I'd love to learn.. especially from you. :)
Besos, Nadine
