Sunset & Buenos Aires & 9 de Julio Avenue & Evita & Would Cup

Photo taken yesterday at 5.45, minutes before the first part of the football match between Holland and Argentina ended

Allegorically the avenue was dark while there were some sun still at the high, half and half, good time for a shot

About the Photo
Taken once more at 9 de Julio Avenue, called “The wide avenue of the world”

At the back are
The building of the former Ministry of Public Works, it was the first skyscraper in Buenos Aires with over 20 floors, funded by the national government. Its reinforced concrete structure was built in record time, and was completed in 138 working days of work
A giant iron portrait of Eva Peron, the work of 31 meters high and 24 meters wide, weighs 15 tons
It’s similar to the portrait of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, another Argentine icon, located on the facade of the former Ministry of Industry in Havana, Cuba
