Marchers at a rally in Buenos Aires. According to official reports there were 100,000 people on this march. However, as it was 'pro' Government, there is no telling how accurate these firgures are. I lived on the 12th floor of an apartment on '9 de Julio', the widest boulevard in the world, and the crown did indeed look huge. I spent most of the day taking photographs.

The following day was the 'anti' government demonstration - I stayed in my apartment that day as the riot police were out in force and cars were overturned and burned. The mere sight of the 'communists' wearing their balaclavas was enough for me to lock my door and spend the day watching TV and surfing the internet.

This second photo gives an impression of the size. It got even bigger as the day went on. The street leading off to the left where the big crowd is , is about 1 km long, leading down to the Congress. This street was absolutely full to capacity with people. It is where I took most of my photos of this event, including yesterday's upload.
