Dan in Argentina: City Views

It's no Westhampton Lake, but it'll do. This small lake in the middle of Buenos Aires has geese, ducks and other fauna, is just about the same size as Westhampton, and, on a nice day you, can roller-blade and bike-ride around it. The only real differences are the tall palm trees surrounding it and, of course, it's hemispherical difference.

It's quickly becoming the summer in Buenos Aires and the palm trees finally make sense. Before recently, temperatures ranged from high 40s in July to low 70s around Halloween. Now, two weeks into November, we are hitting 80 consistently! The foliage here is uniquely a mixture of oak and palm trees that blend together beautifully...especially now that it's warming up! (BTW, that's what their school buses look like)

This is my morning coffee view. Now that it's so nice out, every morning, I drink my cup of coffee on the balcony and listen to the hustle and bustle of the city.

Walking to a bus stop the other day in a part of the city I don't often go, I passed this great little park where everyone was enjoying the sun and the nice summer climate. Parks like these are common all around Buenos Aires and I love stumbling across them.
