So many amazing photos on this page alone. Tucumán looks interesting. I hadn't heard about that place before.

it´s the fifth or seixth largest argie city, after Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Rosario and Mendoza. Not sure if it´s larger or smaller than La Plata, however.


I don´t think it has any important football club (in fact, I think only Buenos Aires and metro plus Rosario have important football clubs in Argentina)

That school in Philly is quite a barrier. I took a long walk on a visit a year ago. It felt like 1/3 of a mile wide where you just couldn't get through. Then you hit the other side and it's fairly (and sometimes very) slummy, at least until the university hospital where I turned back to center city. Wild guess...the barrier is one reason the north is less desirable? Oddly the old prison was in a nice area.

Drones are really becoming hot toys. Here's an aerial video over (or rather through) Manhattan.

I wish I could have seen London before all the highrises got built--incredible urban fabric (the effects of the Blitz notwithstanding).
