Aeroparque & Palermo

This is a blog that simply describes some places where i go running/ jogging. I'm lucky enough to live in a very nice part of Buenos Aires, and a not very known one.

Aeroparque is the local airport, where locals flies take place (the international ones get to Ezeiza airport, far from the city). Palermo is the neighborhood of Buenos Aires where several places were left natural, and they are known as the Bosques de Palermo or Palermo Woods.

The pictures were taken on Sept. 27, 2005, one of the first days of springtime, at noon so there were not too much people in the streets.

Hope you like it.
Some nice buildings at La Pampa street. Posted by Picasa
This is the back of the golf court, the Club the golf. We'll see it later [Mental note. Why do you speak in plural?] Posted by Picasa
Some nice buildings. The thing at the front used to be a gas station but they closed it.  Posted by Picasa
Behind this trees there's a lake, el Lago de Regatas. We'll get back to it. Posted by Picasa
Avenida Figueroa Alcorta. A fast way of leaving the city. On the other side of the road is Aguas Argentinas, where they clean the water from the river and send them to people's houses.  Posted by Picasa
La Pampa and Figueroa Alcorta. The sign with the "enes" is not completed (someday will read "Origenes").  Posted by Picasa
The bridge over Lugones. Posted by Picasa
The beginning of avenida La Pampa, at avenida Lugones. I turn here to get home.  Posted by Picasa
The bridge over Lugones. I like it very much. Aeroparque is on the other side.  Posted by Picasa
Avenida Lugones, a fast way to get downtown. On the other side is Avenida Cantilo, the continuation of Avenida Costanera, the one that borders Aeroparque.  Posted by Picasa
This is the only plane that took off while I was there with my camera (when I don't bring it with me I see hundreds).  Posted by Picasa
The side of the bridge. If you urinate here people from Lugones avenue don't see you, but the ones circulating by Costanera avenue do.  Posted by Picasa
Just to make sure I took these pictures. I was tired and sweaty.  Posted by Picasa
Another runner, in front of me.  Posted by Picasa
This is an entrance to Aeroparque... As you can see, it is not extremely guarded... Posted by Picasa
A cool restaurant called Clo Clo. You sit there and you can watch the planes coming and going. My ex was crazy about going to have lunch there but we never went. Posted by Picasa
Starting the run.  Posted by Picasa
Another view of avenida Costanera, there are a lot of restaurants in that part of the avenue.  Posted by Picasa
A sign asking people not to drop garbage because it may get into an aircraft jet engine.  Posted by Picasa
Avenida Costanera, the one next to the river.  Posted by Picasa
A triangular building. Don't really know what it is.  Posted by Picasa
A fashionable disco.  Posted by Picasa
The Aeroparque (over the fence).  Posted by Picasa
Here it is, the river. El Rio de la Plata (the silver river).  Posted by Picasa
Behind the column there's a choripan cart. A choripan is a sandwich made of chorizo (pig sausage) and, well, bread (pan). Posted by Picasa
