People in Bottle houses shouldn't grow beards

Recycling madman/ madwoman in Patagonia. A whole park devoted to art from rubbish in a welsh speaking village in Argentina - how mad is that!?.

 

Parque El Desafio is a recycling center crossed with an art gallery in Gaiman a welsh speaking town in Argentina.

 

Really, how much odder can you get?

 

Apparently the original architect built the garden to inspire his grandchildren and using mainly plastic bottles and cans has made all sorts of things from a replica of the Taj Mahal to street coverings made with flower-shaped plastic bottles and paint.

Dotted around are little signs with eccentric and satirical commentary.

I am not 100% sure whether it was recycling but it was certainly an interesting stop over on the way back from the penguins!

 

See where this picture was taken. [?]
