I thought you might enjoy seeing some photos of where we wandered today with Pup.
After having a fit over not having anything to wear, I didn't have the energy to actually shop but we did do some looking and walking and looking.
Pup enjoyed it so that is all that matters, right ? although I think his favorite part was when I let him loose in the park and he got to sniff every ... really every single one ... blade of grass in the park.
It is not a small park.
We watched a little street dog run down to busy Libertador, which is a wide Avenue but also similar to , oh , I don't know .... the Indy 500 ?
I was way up on the hill so could not have done anything to stop him or save him , but thankfully, he knew what he was about.
He got to the curb, there were no people about ... and sat.
The traffic stopped at the light - he crossed.
I found it very difficult to leave the park and go home before that little dog found it's way back across the street into the park and neighborhood again.
Homeless dogs here break my heart , even though the people here are amazingly kind and patient with them.
My neighbors mother has a house in the country , she has 7 dogs.
That would be me.
I would take all the little homeless, alone and unloved dogs out to my home where they could safely run and play and be fed and have a warm spot at night.
I have to give this living in the country idea more thought ..
We wandered along Avenida Alvear.
One of the most beautiful streets in the city.
In my neighborhood, where there are many very nice homes and hotels and buildings, as well as parks and Shopping. Yes, there is Good shopping in my neighborhood.
So here are some photos of the area, you will see the best hotels are here... not to mention most expensive and the architecture is wonderful.
In my next life, I might just live in a hotel. It would make things so much easier... don't you think?
The Alvear Hotel
Inside the Alvear... where we have been known to spend a few hours, listening to pretty music and having drinks in the Lobby Bar ... at "our" spot in the corner ( a sofa facing the room so we can people watch ) while having the Best Bloody Mary in town.
And then there is the Hyatt ... this is where I would stay .. this is where I would live ..
This is the back view .. did you say something ? What was that ? You want to live there too? See the umbrellas, you can have tea out there if you wish, even if you don't stay there. It is very nice.
Across the street you can do a little shopping ...
And I have no idea what this place is , I have been told it is a private home.. I do know they have a German Shepherd that could eat your car for breakfast ... thank goodness for those sturdy iron gates .. I so want to go inside that house..
This is the park where we walked and watched the street dog and watched Pup sniff the grass.
As you can see in the photo, he had a lot of grass to sniff.
It is cold, we are staying in tonight, I am making lists .. you know, What I Need to Buy .. where we need to go.
I think Palermo is a good idea, tomorrow... mañana ~
