National Flag Monument

My camera doesn´t take very good night shots, but I thought this one turned out quite well.

From Argentina

This was the site where the original Argentine flag was flown. The flame is in dedication to all the dead Argentine soldiers. And beneath the pillared part of the monument is a cool museum with flags from every member of the Organization of American States, as well as soil from most of them. There´s also a tower, which you can see in the background. You can get to the top via elevator.

Off to Buenos Aires in the morning.
