  • 9 de julio Avenue is one of the main venues in buenos aires, there we can have long walks, the Avenue is wide for both sides, there goes the BRT public transport and we also have the obelisk, as everywhere in argentina we observed a traffic chaos, but it's a good place to visit.

  • The Avenue most important Buenos Aires. Beautiful cross it a sunny day to see the obelisk in the city at the intersection with Corrientes Avenue.

  • Grand Boulevard in downtown Buenos Aires, if I'm not mistaken one of the largest in the world in number of tracks. To cross you have to run, otherwise the drivers hermanos trample on.
