Tallest House on the Block
Not that there is a competition, but it's thirteen stories up!
When I first got to Buenos Aires, I mean the city, the bus was headed down the famous 9 de Julio . Looking up, I saw a house on the top of a tall building.
That's strange, I thought. The other sites and sounds filled my head as I went, and I took up my new surroundings.
Ever since that day, I have always looked up at the architecture when I am on the big avenue, but I had never seen the country style house again.
Then yesterday I looked up as I crossed the street right near Corrientes and saw what I had not seen in many years.
My youngest was with me and we imagined some billionaire wanting a country house with a yard but didn't like the commute in and out of the city.
I can just see him getting the building permit, via coima no doubt, and hiring a gardener to take sod up the elevator to make the yard. And when the kids toss to ball over the fence?
Tough time getting the car in the garage though.
