Motor Home before the Vandals...

Tagged Vintage Camper Van near the National Congress Building in Buenos Aires, Argentina
There is this mysterious vintage camper van on the Plaza de los Dos Congresos, just a stone's throw away from the Argentine National Congress. I was always curious about the "what and why" of its presence, apart from parking. Is it a form of political protest, a camper who will not leave until his/her problem is solved in Congress? Protesters are pretty common on this plaza, either as single demonstrators or in groups. But maybe the van was just left to rot and gather more rust. Anyway, it obviously has become sort of a message board with all the graffiti tags on it. If you know more about it leave me a comment. Well, not on the bus of course. (;

Golly something like that here in Australia close to our Parliament would be surrounded and moved within the hour.

It sure wouldn't last long here.

How long has it been there? It is kind of cool that it has not been moved. I like the photo.

I wonder if it just has a good parking spot? Or does a congress person live in it, avoiding the rental cost of living quarters?

I think you should go spray paint "buenosairesperception.blogspot.com" on the bus, then take another picture! :-)

Sorry, I somehow missed this one...what an old wreck. Can't imagine why it would be parked there for any length of time...

Amazing that the police didn't tow it by now. Maybe there is some kind of protest and they were just taking a lunch break? :)

Effective protestation.

Voices on unlikely places get more attention so this could be why they have it all over the bus.
