Casa Rosada, Plaza de Mayo, Buenos Aires –
This type of event would have been unheard of 30 years ago in front of La Casa Rosada or anywhere else….
The day before I left Argentina 33 years ago was when the national team beat Peru 7 – 0 to qualify for the final of the World Cup. I was in the street with hundreds of thousands of people in downtown Buenos Aires celebrating in front of armed military patrols who quietly stood by. Now, the day before my trip ends, it is such a pleasing coincidence to be here at Plaza de Mayo observing the celebrations of a persistent and stable democracy.
