We got a late start yesterday. When we got to Chacarita cemetery, it was noon.

We spent a few hours there, taking photographs under the blazing sun. Stu noted the mausoleums seemed to be in better shape than a lot of the homes we had seen. It's true.

Stu said he had never seen anything like it.

Chacarita is on one end of Avenida Corrientes. We worked our way back down toward the other end, stopping for gnocchi, ice cream and coffee.

We ended up in the Plaza de Mayo, amidst the piqueteros (semi-professional protesters) and riot police.

Then it was time to go home.
