Monseratt, Buenos Aires
I’ve decided, if you are going to live in a big city, you need to do it near the heart of the city. Monseratt is close enough to the action that you can walk to most points of interest. For the ones further away, there are special tour buses that have different routes. You can hop on and off them to see the sights you are interested in. The place we stayed in last month
was OK, but the neighborhood was just so much urban filler.
This place is in an older building. The whole area is a mashup of old and new, well maintained and run down buildings of various sizes. Some buildings are utilitarian, but others works of art. Check out the vertical panorama picture of the building Starbucks is located in. There are statues “holding up” the third floor. The upper levels are amazing as well. If you click on the photograph you should be able to see the details on a larger, zoom-able image.
