We drive along the main avenue, Avenida 9 de Julio and past the Obelisco de la Plata to the Plaza de Mayo. The pink palace (Presidential Palace) stands behind a fence which is now permanent and part of the protests. To one side of the plaza is the Catedral Metropolitana, which was the parish of Jorge Mario Bergoglio before he became Pope Francis.
The driver takes us through Palermo and Ricoleta to the cemetery. This is my fourth trip to the cemetery, but I am still fascinated by the mosuliums. Of course, we need to stop by and see Evita.
Our tour guide is excellent. She tells us of the history of Argentina, the people and the places all with a bit of humor. For example, she says that demonstrations are a hobby for the Argentines. She also shares windows into her life, which makes us feel as if she is a friend showing us the city she loves.
