Casa Rosada and Bicycle Racing in BA

La Casa Rosada (Spanish for "the Pink House"), officially known as the Casa de Gobierno ("Government House") or Palacio Presidencial ("The Presidential Palace"), is the official seat of the executive branch of the government of Argentina. (When not working at the Casa Rosada, the president resides in a compound in Olivos, Buenos Aires.) RIPPED FROM WIKIPEDIA

I was there today

A view of the back taken a little later in the day. Eva Perron used to rally her followers from the balcony up top in the first photo. Madonna was also here to shoot the movie Evita

In Peru there was a foot race and in Argentina there was a bike race. Granted I have no idea what it was because the announcer should have worked as an auctioneer.
