The Pink Palace (no guesses why it goes by that name) is where the president carries out her duties during the week. On weekends they open the palace and give free tours of this beautiful old building, which I am happy to report is not pink on the inside as well. The guides are all dressed as soilders from the nutcracker, or in what I presume is traditional dress for the guards. My favourite parts were the floor and ceiling details, just lovely. There was so much design and decoration to take in, so much intricate work and money that has gone into this building.
It´s great that they open it up so that the public can experience this important part of Argentina´s history.
I am an Australian who has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for four years. My perception of the city has changed as I have adapted to my environment and new home. I am somewhere between a tourist and a local and find beauty in my everyday environment.
