Photographer's Note

From Iguazu we returned to Buenos Aires. This time we took the fastest option: by air. And the views that we got were very different from the views that we had on our way TO Iguazu from the bus. This was great as well, especially when we arrived at Buenos Aires. The view over the city was marvellous with large parts in the shade but some light spots of sun on the city.

The very organized layout of the city is visible in this picture. It has its origin in the late 1500s when Juan de Garay created the first organized layout of the city. The squares were chosen as simple unities. Every Spanish conquistador was appointed an area as large as one square of the city (or half a square). Many towns in Argentina have city-plans that look like this. And that's something that we also could see during our flight from Iguazu to Buenos Aires.

Tech: increased contrast to get rid off the haze caused by the airplane window.
