TIGRE (I) !

TIGRE is a city that's part of the GREATER BUENOS AIRES! One can easily reach that place by taking a train (several possibilities)! I took one from the RETIRO TRAIN STATION and went directly to the TIGRE TRAIN STATION (around 50 minutes, going thru the city suburbs)!
Going out of the station, one gets in touch with a very nice-looking downtown, with beautiful buildings and a lively atmosphere, specially on week-ends (I was there on a saturday afternoon)!
The city is located in the DELTA of the PARANÁ RIVER and its main characteristic is to be a meeting-point for water activities's fans! All kinds of boats fill up the several canals nearby the city, most of them filled up with all kinds of houses, from the humblest to the fanciest (in its urban part, because the Delta is enormous!).
I took this picture at the very beginning of my boat ride!

With this picture, I go on with a new series here at TE, showing some landmarks of BUENOS AIRES, the ARGENTINA'S CAPITAL CITY and the SECOND largest city in SOUTH AMERICA, considered a mix of several european cities (Madrid, London and Paris)!

Although the city has faced many economical crisis in the last decades with obvious decay of life quality in many aspects - today one can find homeless people, beggars, dirt, a certain violence in the streets and slums in its outskirts - the good spirit of the city still remains: Fun at night, with lots of people going out around midnight and going back home with sunlight still exists! Wonderful buildings and monuments are still all over the place!!!
