The northwest of Argentina is a charming and rustic gem often undiscovered and overlooked. Some of the finest architecture in all of Argentina can be found here, including the magnificent Saint Francis Chapel with its striking hues of red and gold. This ornate building, located just a short walking distance from Plaza 9 de Julio, is a landmark to this growing metropolis of the north. First built in 1625, this chapel also boasts one of the tallest bell towers in Latin America. Visit our website for more information: http://imagineargentina.com/salta.html

Founded in 1548, Guanajuato is a brilliant destination in central Mexico offering travelers one of the most picturesque panoramics in all of Central America. Numerous buildings painted in various pastels trail off into the distant hillsides as tourists find themselves wandering down narrow cobblestone streets that intersect between colonial cathedrals and shade-filled plazas.

This is one of our favorite shots from Buenos Aires. The morning rain leaves behind a sense of eeriness amidst the narrow corridors and ornate tombs of Recoleta Cemetery...final resting place of national war heroes and cultural icons.

Well, it has been much too long since we last posted here on the Imagine Argentina blog. In fact, the last post (below) was written when Wade returned from Africa in the summer of 2011. A lot has been happening since that time. We find ourselves more and more occupied each week with kids, house projects, work duties, school studies, and a bit of worldwide travel. Nonetheless, it is time to start up the blog again...with a new design and larger images.
Each week, we intend to feature some of our best photographs from across the globe...and we'll start with this gem (taken right here at home). For the first installment of "Photo FRIDAY" in 2013, we selected this image of our son...our own little super hero. With a little chalk, an open parking lot, and a flair of imagination, our son soon found himself soaring above a make-believe cityscape (an illusion made possible thanks to an 8-foot ladder). He was quite the convincing actor as he stretched across the pavement with a smile on his face!
We wish a HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our followers and amigos. Now go make 2013 a year of your own super hero achievements and adventures! Next week, we'll continue 'soaring' to a new location somewhere in the world :)
