Photographer's Note

I took this photo inside the Abasto Shopping. When I saw the inside it seems to me a starship like the movie ones. In the background we can see a big Ferris Wheel inside the mall.

The Abasto of Buenos Aires (known as Abasto Shopping) is one of the largest and most successful shopping centers in Buenos Aires.

It ranks of the old Abasto Market, which opened in 1893 and closed in 1984. After a decade of neglect, it was purchased by the developer IRSA, associated with the Chilean company Parque Arauco. The old Market was remodeled and expanded to become a shopping. The restaurantion began in January 1997 and the mall was opened on November 9, 1998, with the presence of the President Carlos Menem.
