Scary dolls in San Telmo – Month in Buenos Aires – HAVANA CLUB GAP YEAR
I took these photos just because I found this a little bit scary, I can’t imagine this dolls being used by kids in the past; I’m pretty sure that these are expensive collectors items now, and I’m also completely sure that no kid would want to play with one of these. Also I learnt these are made of porcelain, so It might not last long in children’s hands.
These dolls and many more vintage and old things are found in a market at San Telmo in Buenos Aires.
Did you have something like this? Do you find these scary as I did?
Recoleta, the cemetery that looks like a small town – Month in Buenos Aires – HAVANA CLUB GAP YEAR
Extravagant, sumptuous and luxurious; Recoleta cemetery in Buenos Aires has been considered one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world.
Distinguished people are buried in this little town in the middle of the city; it’s amazing to learn that Buenos Aires had such a wealthy economy in the past; the graves and mausoleums were built with the best materials available in the world, many of them imported from Europe.
Eva Peron is buried here, and her tomb is also one of the most visited ones in the cemetery. People even bring her flowers and different things to pay tribute to this Argentine notable leader.
When I first visited the cemetery I felt like if I was in a small town, there are mausoleums as big as houses or even small buildings. Impressive.
The entry to the cemetery is free, but there are tours and maps available at the entrance.
