Just another day in Buenos Aires
The weather , the skies that were fabulous in the morning, sunny during the day, amazing sunsets and dark and full of stars at night .
The streets with cars, always ... cars. Taxis, trucks, motorcycles and more cars. And then there were the days that there was a Protest planned.
Then the streets were closed but they were full of People.
Police. Protesters. More Police.
Only once did things get a little dicey.
When tear gas was used.
That was when everyone was riled up by someone trying to get attention away from the rotten job she was doing so they reminded everyone that they should be angry at another country and storm the Embassy.
The Embassy was quite safe and well guarded.
Our street was noisy, full of people and for a short while, tear gas.
We didn't smell it, we closed our shutters and turned the music up.
This only happened a couple of times in the years we were there. My husband treated it all with the aplomb that only a native New Yorker has .. he continued to listen to his music , turned it up a bit louder and read his book.
I worried for a short time then the dog and I went to the back of the apartment/building to our bedroom where it was quiet and peaceful and we took a nap.
A couple of hours later, everything was over, they cleaned the streets, the parks filled up with families again and the shops and restaurants opened their doors.
Another day in Buenos Aires.
