Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday-Closed’ brought to mind something rather interesting we saw In Buenos Aires whilst on a river cruise.
The Sarmiento House is a National Historic Monument and is the exceedingly modest abode built of wood, is where former Argentinian President Domingo Sarmiento chose to live for over thirty years with his family after his time in office until his death in in1888. This museum stands on the bank of La Plata River and was enclosed in glass to preserve it against the elements.
This photo was taken in 2017 from our boat. It certainly looked very closed and I couldn’t see how anyone could get inside that glass case, but apparently it is visited every weekend by thousands of tourists, although I’m sure that COVID has changed all that for the time being.
I hope you’re all having a splendid weekend. To join in Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’ challenge, just click the link.
