Finally, after months of delay, I have knocked one off of the bucket list, and gone to take pictures of Congreso, which is only a few blocks from where I live. It’s Christmas day, and the streets are mostly empty. Here’s what I see.
A colorfully painted bus that was painted by my roommates’ friend a few years ago. It always sits here.
Unfortunately, Argentina’s economy is still hurting. This is a common scene in the city now. Dirty mattresses, where families sleep and spend their days.
Congreso, on a rare day without protests or picketers.
A typical scene in Buenos Aires. Hardly any bench space.
