    Este verano tuve el suerte para ir a Argentina para 2 meses. Fui con una programa de cambios intercultures para estudiantes. Quede con una familia. Puedo hablar en espanol mejor ahora pero tengo problemas con los cambios de verbios.

    In argentina there really is no graffiti scene. In the city of Buenos Aires which has 12 million people you see some tags occasionally but very little for how large the country is. The thing is that there are no laws that are specifically against graffiti, and even if there were the cops wouldnt actually do anything to stop you. So although you dont see tagging, people like to write shit on the walls. It usually doesnt amount to any more than " I love you maria" or "Metallica ROCKS!" but sometimes it is very political. Also politicians just hire people to go out and paint their names on walls as a form of political advertisement.

    Argentina isnt some really shitty 3rd world country. A lot of it looks very modern and european though they do have some very poor areas in most towns called villas where people are living in little metal and concrete shacks. I thought it was pretty cool except for the fact that while it was summer in the north it was dead winter there and they dont really use heating so it was always fucking cold as hell even though it never got below freezing.

    I will start it off with typical argentine graffiti. If you cant read spanish It sais "old school xxx hardcore" Fucking badass...

    Posadas. Sorry for the size, Photobucket uploaded it weirdly. Anyways, you will notice that in the background is a huge apartment building with a heli pad and in the foreground there is a nice 2 story house next to another house next to a small metal shack. Such is the rugged individualistic argentine archetecture. I once saw a large bright pink house with a bright blue bench in front of it next to an old abandoned shitty plain pored concrete non painted building, this is common. Heres another example, (also Posadas)...

    notice upstairs is the unfinished frame, while downstairs is a nice house complete with roman pillars and next door is another nice one. This was all over.

    My camera is digital, the only things i messed with in all of these pics was the brightness and contrast a little bit though.

    Recoleta Cemetary Buenos Aires. This is a huge cemetary where all the rich people in Argentina are buried, each tomb is about 15 feet high and very elaborate. It was like a city of these big tomb buildings. Very rad.
