don't cry for me argentina

ok, ok - i know. i went for the easy title. 


don't cry for me argentina is cliche, but in the past couple of days as i've been exploring buenos aires, i've found that eva peron still figures largely here......



as do churros, hot chocolate...




and tango 


isn't this couple magnificent?!?

uploading fotos is slow right now, so i'll leave you with these images of my favorite things so far in the city argentines refer to as 'capital' --- buenos aires. 


more soon, mis amigos ;-)

  2. I'm so stupid, I forgot to tell you that I have friends filming a remake of Evita in Buenos Aires right now!!

    Look out for them and see if you can sneak in behind the scenes!

    Hugs and sleek tango moves,
    Lola (my nickname works wonderfully with the whole Argentina vibe, no?)

  3. Such beautiful people and places!

    I love the song Don't Cry for Me, Argentina. Eva Peron is stunning. An amazing woman.

  4. I know, it's so easy to say "Don't Cry for me etc.).... but, it IS a passionate song! My Ex-Ex (yes, that's two ex's)..is an Englishman - and I can remember being at a posh dinner in London when he and his friends changed the words to "Don't Cry for Me, Port Stanley"....this was during the Falklands War... yes....dating myself!

    Love these photos -except I have given up chocolate for Lent..and those churros and chocolate look DELICIOUSO!!!!!!!

    I KNOW you are enjoying yourself!!!! More photos soon!

    Con Amore,

    ♥ Your "Twin" ♥

  5. Looks as though you are happily landed in Argentina. And you have wonderful pictures!

    Evita was a fascinating woman. She worked hard to improve the lives of poor people, for which she has been justly rewarded in the soul of her nation.
