WW#16 - This is my hometown



OK, not so 'wordless' today

Necochea (my hometown) is located here in South America

It's on the Atlantic, and its beach is one of the widest in the world
The sun raises and sets on the sea...
When the day is not good for the beach, people go to the Miguel Lillo Park, that has millions of pine trees...
...or to the beautiful Quequén River...
...or to the 'old downtown', where the statue of General Mariano Necochea looks over the entire city.
They celebrate the city's anniversary on that same square, with a huge community barbecue... (drool)
But the place I miss the most is the Café "Tatalo"... the best croissants, the best coffee and the best ham and cheese toasted sandwiches in the world!

I always go back to Necochea... almost every night.

  71. What a beautiful place to have lived. It must be very different for you there in Canada. Polar opposites practically. I just noticed that your wife's name is Gabriela. How interesting to have names so close to each other.

  72. Wonderful summer shots while so many are weathering the cold here. Enjoy! Sure makes the Gypsy in me want to see it all.....

  76. Que lindas fotos. Pero siento que se me estrangula el corazon, sobre todo con la foto del parque donde pase tantas tardes con mi hermanito (no nos dejaban ir a la playa solos mientras mis abuelos dormian la siesta) y la de Tatalo donde siempre encontraba a mi mama y a mis tios tomandose un cafecito despues de la playa. Yo tambien vuelvo seguido en mis suen/os.

  85. el otro día comenté que no es San Martín el de la estatua... es Mariano Necochea. San Martín tiene las tres vainillas... no sé que pasó con el post, desapareció...

  88. Hola Gabriel,

    Sorprendido del giro tan particular que ha tomado tu blog.
    Eres muy diverso y polifacetico.

    Tienes todo tipo de lectores.

    La foto del parque Miguel Lillo es MAGICA, parece irreal, como si fera de una pelicula fantastica o un bosque de elfos del Se&or de los Anillos.
    Me dejo boquiabierto.

    Yo trabaje varios a&os en percepcion remota analizando imagenes de satelite, la vista de toda Sudamerica SIN fronteras es espectacular.

    Se ve Necochea es un lindo lugar.

    Saludos
    Arturo
