The view from our room. Being in a city is quite the change for us.
Babuchas are a very popular clothing item in South America. I decided to get a pair of my own. They are like fancy sweatpants or Jasmine pants (from Aladdin). I love them. What do you think of them? I am standing in front of the Pink House here: like the White House in the States.
These are Argentine Alpargatas (like in the giveaway I had that just ended, Congrats again Blair). They are the working class shoe. These are the shoes that inspired Tom's. The background is the tile floor of the main Cathedral in B.A.
There are plenty of flower shops and newspaper stands crowding the streets. I decided to stop and take pictures of some of the flowers I liked (also embarrassing my husband at the same time).
More pretty flowers.
This is one of the shirts I bought for 55 pesos or $15 U.S.
This is a tunic I bought that was the same price. I guess I was inspired by the flowers and had to get some of my own. Flowers last a lot longer when you wear them. I got these items from a shop on the street Corrientes in the Once District. This is where the locals shop.
