Il avait l'air de faire très chaud, ou c'était l'heure de la sieste: un endroit où j'ai vraiment envie d'aller !

Bonsoir Pierre
En fait ni l'un ni l'autre. J'ai pris cette photo assez tôt le matin avant l'arrivée des touristes. C'était l'hiver austral donc pas très chaud par contre le soleil cogne car nous sommes sous les tropiques.
Merci pour ta visite (virtuelle en attendant la vraie).
Bien amicalement, Patrick

Hola Martin. Sorry to hear that, I had a quick look at your gallery and you have great shots of BA. Yes we had a great time in Argentina, one week around Salta. Beautiful area and Purmamarca is a very quaint village. We also started with a day in BA, too short but had the time to enjoy the center of the city, la Boca (have a look at my photos) and a tango show. We then passed over the Andes and into Chile.
Thank you for your kind comments.
Greetings, Fonfon
