San Martin's tomb. Photo by: longhorndave

The Father of Argentina. The Libertador. His tomb is in the Buenos Aires Cathedral right off of the Plaza de Mayo. It is guarded by two soldiers on par with the Buckingham Palace guards.

Hello Stephie
I'm sorry I haven't commented on your blog for a while.. really. I am still your friend of course, and I'm loving commenting on your blog!
Wow... what a lovely picture and post about the father of Argentina. I'm sure if he'd see it, he'd be proud and happy. Very smart of you. ;) Why is he the father of Argentina? Has he done something special? I really want to visit Argentina before I die, and see such awesome places you describe right here on your very own blog...
Hugs and Kisses, Nadine

Hey Stephie
The password isn't working! Is something wrong with it?
Please reply back to me on your blog and give me the user-name and password!! That would be lovely..
In my other comment, I wrote that I'd written a post because I was going to, but because the password wouldn't work, I couldn't!! :( How sad. But as soon as you give me the password and user-name I promise to make a post!!!!
Love, Nadine
