When the Journey Never Ended
Buenos Aires, Argentina (2014) — At the eastern edge of Puerto Madero runs a promenade with a low wall that bounds the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve. Farther east, across the reserve, is Río de la Plata. Inland a short walk to the west at the Río Darsena Sur are the Puente de la Mujer (Woman’s Bridge) and the historic, tall sailing ship Uruguay.
La Plata, Argentina (2013) — Cars move like boats and send their wakes spilling across a three-way intersection. Over 15 inches of rain fell on La Plata that day—the worst storm to have ever hit the city. Even though it was a modern planned city, its infrastructure could not handle this much rain. The flooding killed many people when the water level rose up to 6 feet in places.
Buenos Aires, Argentina (2014) — One of the most spectacular bookstores in the world was once a magnificent theater. El Ateneo in Recoleta is a book lover’s paradise. Its balconies circle a great golden hall many stories tall filled with books, books, and more books, which a vaulted, fresco-covered ceiling can hardly contain.
Disclaimer: The footage used for these historical video clips was shot many years ago for reference purposes related to writing. The compact digital camera used was an early adopter of video. Back then compact digital cameras were very limited in quality and capability compared to where they stand now. So, the footage obviously does not meet today's standards.
