La Bolsa de Comercio de Buenos Aires (B.C.B.A.) o en inglés Buenos Aires Stock Exchange (B.A.S.E.); fue fundada el 10 de julio de 1854, es la mayor bolsa de valores y principal centro de negocios y finanzas de la Argentina.

En 1913, el arquitecto Alejandro Christophersen proyectó el nuevo edificio de la Bolsa de Comercio, en un estilo Luis XVI (Beaux-Arts). Se inauguró en 1916 y sumó 9.000 m² para oficinas de renta, y espacios para locales comerciales en la recova de la Avenida Leandro N. Alem. El arquitecto Jorge Liernur marca que el edificio de Christophersen es una muestra del conflicto que aparecía a comienzos del siglo XX entre las normas de la arquitectura académica y las nuevas exigencias que tenía la vida moderna.

The architect Jorge Liernur points out that the Christophersen building is a sample of the conflict that appeared at the beginning of the 20th century between the norms of academic architecture and the new demands of modern life.

When we visited Buenos Aires on a previous trip (OMG! 2008) El Hipopótamo was one of our favourite San Telmo Barrio happy hour bars. Went back for a drink on this trip, was not the same happy experience. Indifferent service and in need of a thorough cleaning.

 

The bar dates from 1909 but it has not always gone by the name it has today. Originally called La Estrella del Sur, and later renamed to Don Pedro (it stands opposite a statue commemorating the city’s founder Don Pedro de Mendoza).

 

he owner gave it its current moniker about 30 years ago as a tongue-in-cheek tribute to an upscale establishment popular at the time with upper-class society. This El Hipopótamo outlived the upscale establishment and still offers classic Porteña picadas and café fare.

 

The bar is kitty-corner to Parque Lezama on Defensa at Brasil.

Architecture in Buenos Aires is easy to love.

 

Classical BA buildings are a mix of styles (particularly French and Italian), expected in a city of immigrants.

 

Many were built during the boom years 1880 to 1930, meaning many were built in neoclassical style popular around the world at the time.

 

Often the more interesting details of the buildings are the gargoyles, statues, cupolas, scrollwork and other flourishes that adorn entrances and upper floors.

 

And, here is one example Galería Mitre—Baroque Architecture at 343 Florida St. There are two entrance doors adorned with the same scrollwork embellishment.

 

The building was erected in 1930 to house one of the nation’s largest newspapers, La Nación. Today is houses a Chilean clothier Falabella.

PedidosYa is one of several courier delivery services in Buenos Aires.

 

THE GUARDIAN:

23 August, 2019:

A Buenos Aires judge bans delivery apps after road accidents spike.

 

When a courier delivering a takeaway in Buenos Aires was hit by a car 16 August, 2019, the company’s response was not to check how he was, but to ask: - “How is the order?”.

 

A judge has now ordered the suspension of delivery apps after finding that major players Rappi, Glovo, and PedidosYa, failed to comply with the law – of course the companies deny any wrong doing. The judges banned them until they start following the law.

 

The judges ruling applies to all companies that fail to comply with the law, but specifically mentions Rappi, Glovo and PedidosYa.

 

There has been an alarming number of road accidents in Buenos Aires involving couriers, with 13 to 40 incidents per month.

El Hotel Savoy funciona desde 1908 a pocos metros del Palacio del Congreso en la ciudad de Buenos Aires.

Lately I've been working on incorporating more environment into my wildlife photos. This javelina gave me a good opportunity with Baboquivari Peak in the background this morning at Buenos Aires NWR. This javelina was just one of four different ungulate species I saw today, the others being Mule Deer, White-tailed Deer, and Pronghorn.
