Buenos Aires, Argentina

From series “Permanently Sinking Cities and Regions”
Argentina also has been suffering from the flooding for a long period of time. Residents of Buenos Aires get used to such water-related disasters. The last major flood was in December 2016. About 600 people were evacuated and two residents are still reported missing with the flooding. The main reason for destroying flooding is the storm. Due to the last disaster, a lot of people lost their houses. The level of water in houses was about 1,5 meters.

Locals note that the flood had happened unexpectedly, that’s why many residents couldn’t save their things. For last years, serious flooding takes place on a regular base in Buenos Aires. This natural disaster posed a major setback to the city in 2013. As a result, the disaster caused eight deaths. One of them was the subway’s worker. He was under the ground when the disaster has happened, he died from the short-circuit currents. At that day flooding in Buenos Aires fell 180 mm rainfalls that aren’t usual for the middle of the spring.

Other Argentina cities are also in a danger. Let’s return to the amazing fate of Villa Epecuén. Several decades ago the dam in this town had broken and everything went under the water. Within 25 years the town was under the water, then water has evaporated and in 2009 there was built a modern and active growth town. Buenos Aires is reinforced from the water rush, but even this doesn’t save the city from the human casualties. Every year the city government spend great sums of money on rebuilding the country’s damaged road network and power supply lines. To the beginning - New Orleans

Top destination around Buenos Aires - Buenos Aires

Esplendor Hotel is a very popular hotel with an unusual design that can hardly be found anywhere else. Its designers, the Argentinian art group called Mondongo, created a whole picture gallery with portraits of famous people, such as football player Diego Maradona, revolutionary Che Guevara, and many others. The uniqueness of these portraits is in the way they are made – the designers used different materials at hand, such as modeling clay, shotshells, wine corks, glass beads, golden chains and even food to make the pictures. These portraits can be found everywhere – in the hotel’s hall, passages, and at the restaurant. Travelers always praise these creative works and enjoy examining them in detail.
