Argentina – Independence Day

On July 9, 2017, Argentina has 201 years to its independence history.

Artist: Cesar Alonso Rodriguez

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.

Artist: Cesar Alonso Rodriguez

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!

“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”

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

⭐ THANK YOU ! ⭐ Aquileana

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)

Flower Power Box

Toronto is going all out, hiring many artists to paint power boxes.

This one grabbed me, big time!

At first, the closer I got the better it looked.

Then the farther I got, the better it looked.

I walked away, and realized the other side was just as fabulous!
