English tower from the 10th floor of the Sheraton Park Tower, Buenos Aires. Train and bus stations across from tower. La Plata River in background.

Florida St., a pedestrian shopping street just up the hill from the Park Tower.

Further down Florida St. The street was busy until late at night.

Up the street from the park Tower. Interesting combinations of old and new buildings are seen everywhere.

Looking towards the Sheraton, which is behind the light pole in the center. That's English tower to the left of the hotel and the train station's dome is just visible above the trees to the left.

In front of Naval Headquarters down the street from the hotel. That's an A-4 on-a-stick. I tried a closer shot, but the guy with the gun said ”no picture”.

Looking back towards the hotel from in front of Naval Headquarters. The building on the right looks like the Central Post Office.

Park diagonally across from the hotel. It is a Malvinas/South Atlantic war memorial that is always guarded. Walking up the hill on the sidewalk to the left of the park takes you to Florida St. shopping.

At Jorge Newbery airport awaiting the flight to Córdoba. The airport is very close to the hotel - maybe a ten minute drive. The flight was a LAN 737 and the takeoff was interesting. There was a strong cross-wind and we were jerked around pretty good because we were in the back of the plane.

Looking over the shopping mall from the room at the Córdoba Sheraton. McDonald's – we went all the way to Córdoba, Argentina to eat at McDonald's? Must be good stuff!
