This afternoon one of the school’s history teachers took us on a tour of downtown Buenos Aires, where we visited various monuments and important buildings. We saw , although president doesn’t live there and it is now used for government administration. We also saw the Plaza de Mayo, which commemorates Argentine independence and the first Argentine government after many years of Spanish rule. In addition, we got to see a historic cathedral and a museum of recent Argentine history, including a painting Juan Perón and his wife Evita, as well as her dress. It was an interesting and informative afternoon for all!
