People in Argentina are mostly very kind and helpful, but you can be disappointed if you expect to be satisfied for your money so fast and accurately as you are familiar in Europe. Though Argentina is a mixture of lots of nations, there is no racism. In troubles you can expect unselfish help. There is lots of homeless and unemployed persons. This kind man who obviously had lot of time, became the model for my camera without expecting a money.

The roofs over street at hotel DiplomatFarther of nice frontages of business houses the signs of decomposition is visible everywhere. On other side from our hotel, the roofs show how the owners care for they.Azucana Villaflor

In suburbs we met lots of buildings like this abandoned sugar work. Some multistorey buildings by the highway were smashed skeletons without tenants. The town shows the lack of investments.

If I would like to feel the pulse of this big town in bright and dark side, I should be there at least a month or two. In two days I walked around hotel in a distance of only one tenth of whole Buenos Aires so this were only cursory impresses that cant show a real picture of big town.

Dead fishes in water of Dique 1Dark side of one country usually appears at once when you step out from a plane. But in the case of Buenos Aires, I didn't feel the dirt and decaying in bad way. The ramshackle buildings accompanied me on each step. In smaller basin before Dique 1 we noticed in yellowish water a half of ton of dead fishes. It was a surprise for me that water doesn't stink neither there nor elsewhere by the bank of Rio de la Plata.

The contrast of the streets by the bankIn all days of my stay in Buenos Aires I was surprised that even the town is a big harbour, despite of big quantities of garbage it nowhere smells nastily.

The dissimilarity of this town is felt everywhere you turn around. The dog is resting at the door of hotel near Dique 1By big modern buildings ride decaying old cars, near beautiful memorial is petrol pump where the gasoline and oil are streaming on ground, at the entrance of modern hotel are resting wasted dogs...
