Buenos Aires - Part 14: Over the roofs

Since I have been travelling the last two weeks to Córdoba and Mendoza without my laptop, I haven't really been online and still feel the need to sort out all the pictures... that's why this week I only show you some images from Buenos Aires from above.

It's always good to have friends who have friends with a nice flat and well situated...
like right next to the polo field
watching the sun going down

perfect flat - nothing more to say^^
I love the Argentinien flag everywhere :)
soooooooo nice!!

I love cities from above, it gives you a totally different feeling (and of course view). This is basically one of the few moments when I love to be in a big city, skylines are just breathtaking!

That's why in every city I try to find the highest point and enjoy the view! You too??

Buenos Aires - Part 13: Jardín Jápones

The other day we went to the Jardín Jápones, a beautiful litte green space in the middle of Buenos Aires. I really enjoyed the whole concept of pure nature and a bit of Japan in Latin America.
But it is mainly an attraction, hence a place to see and walk through, not so much to sit down and relax.
The day we went coinceded with a Comic/Manga event - and I know from German book fairs that those events are overcrowded with "groopies" and cosplayers. It seems that in Buenos Aires there are only a few people interested in it - the rooms with exhibition from artists and presentations were pretty empty.
Since I am not that interested in it either we thought we eat some sushi in the restaurant which exist in the park, but the prices where way over my budget... 
It was definitely worth going and pay the entrance once, but I don't think I need to go there again, there are other nice green and free spaces in BA :)

I love the mix of green and in the back ground the big city!

Buenos Aires - Part 12: An Argentine Polo Match

One point of our bucket list for Buenos Aires was to watch a polo match, since it's obviously quite a big thing.

Unfortunately we had no clue about the rules and when we went there we were mainly like "ooh horses!!!". The field they are playing on is just massive, so sometimes you cannot see much, but when they are close to where you sit, it's just really exiting and almost chaotic and dangerous how they try to hit the ball to their goal...

I would love to tell you something more about the rules and how everything works, but to be honest... I don't know!^^ The only thing I know that they change sides quite often, means in one moment they shoot the ball into one goal and then they have to shoot it into to the exact other one o.O
I also know that there are only 4 players and each has a set of horses, I belief it was 12?? And they change them regularly in the game. Most players are so cool they just jump from one horse to another! Massive! :D

Where POSH people get their drinks :D
Sitting where the real fans take some actions!
It was definitely a cool experience and totally worth it. However, me as an animal lover I am not sure about the horses... Sometimes they got hit by the ball or so.

I don't think this is gonna be my next fav sport, but I am happy I watched it once!
