No Highs/Lows/Yums. Just the story.
I had been waiting for the right time to visit this place, being a tourist in Buenos Aires you are constantly being told that you have to go and see it, experience it. As much as I sometimes I hate myself for it, I find my myself wanting to avoid most of the places people tell me are ‘must do’s’ Im glad I made it to this one.
I secretly knew I was truly going to love this place, its like a playground for wannabe photographers and I had been inspired by a blog from a girl who has been documenting the reflections that its timeless stained glass windows create when the light hits it right.
La Recoleta Cemetery was built in the 1800’s its huge, like if I was explaining it to a 6 year old I would say about 100 futbol fields or like 2 dinosaurs. But its not really as big as 2 Dinosaurs. It contains the graves of many notable people, from mothers who cooked for their lazy children everyday, children who didn’t get the chance to thank their mothers and an array of famous personalities including Eva Peron, presidents of Argentina, Nobel Prize winners, the founder of the Argentine Navy and a granddaughter of Napoleon.
I had my BA partners in crime with me too! Pauly and Ris are hilarious together and made wandering through the maze and getting lost a lot of fun!
