The day started cloudy in Buenos Aires. By the time I arrived to Plaza Francia it was raining heavily. We bought an umbrella, had lunch and in the afternoon the weather was a lot better. I did not find any of the local sketchers but in any case I sketched the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar (second oldest in Buenos Aires, founded in 1732) and a mausoleum in the Recoleta Cemetery. I still had time for a visit to the National Art Museum.
