Buenos Aires, the White City

San Telmo Cityscape View over the White City Buenos_Aires, Argentina
You are overlooking Buenos Aires or the White City, as I call it. From atop the roofs you get the impression that the city has been covered with white powder. Wherever you turn, from afar the whole city seems white-washed and pristine. The barrios you are looking at are Monserrat and San Telmo. Almost every building, every structure, every surface, even the sidewalks appear white.

Fascinating view of your city from a different angle. I think I told you before that I got my first taste of Buenos Aires from W. E. B. Griffin's novels...

Now you're whetting my appetite for a more direct acquaintance.

Buenos Aires looks so different from the air than from street level, but I guess that's how it is with all cities. From this angle it looks tall, compact, impersonal, and very clean.

Must be a big job trying to keep it white.

Beautiful view. I remember leaving Buenos Aires by plane and seeing the city from above as far as the eye can see. I don't think I ever seen such a huge urban spread.

This is a good looking city. Sadly I cannot help but say these people are lucky to live here. Right now some people are drenched in water.
