(photo above: walking up to the "Museo Monte de Piedad" or the Bank Museum on Av.Boedo. We got a free private guided tour. The museum was really nice and interesting. The tour was all in Spanish but I was able to understand the tour guide. Her Spanish was clear. )(photo above: Esquina del Tango Sur on Av.Boedo)

I loved these photos!

That last one that "wouldn't fly"... it seems like such a classical figure drawing. I only have like 200 of them in my house! Crazy puritans.

Looks like you're having fun with your time off :)
