On July 9, 2017, Argentina has 201 years to its independence history.
I felt Argentina when I saw this mini-mural, so I sent a pic off to Aquileana from La Audacia de Aquiles, after all, she lives in Argentina.
She replied, “YES that graffiti certainly seems to depict Argentina…. Tango… Perhaps milongas ( a tango style).”
It’s like I can hear and feel the music all the way up here in Canada!

⭐ BONUS ⭐ Aquileana sent us some street art from The Boca Juniors Stadium!
“I added several murals surrounding the stadium …
And two pics from the streets nearby it”
“Boca Juniors is one of the two most popular football clubs in Argentina…. Alongside River Plate…. they hate each other… I am a Boca Juniors´fan :D”
“The iconography of these murals is very ARGENTINE.”
⭐ EXTRA BONUS ⭐
Aquileana sent pics from Caminito!
“In (some of) Caminito´s murals you can see a typical family and a technique to write words called FILETEADO.”
“You can Google: Caminito, Buenos Aires, Argentina to see the location, etc…”
I certainly did, and it looks very interesting, not just the location, but the shops and the views!

Argentina’s flower – Ceibo
Argentina’s National Animal – Cougar or Puma- I thought this looked like one, although the smile is a bit sweet. It is from my collection.

Your contributions are fabulous! I have learned more about Argentina in doing this one post, than in my entire life. (except for about Eva Peron)
