Have I mentioned how friendly and helpful Argentine people are? Today, just for me, El Teatro (Paraná’s local theatre) turned on the lights and let me go wild with my camera. What a beautiful and well looked after theatre. In my first week here in Paraná, my host family took me to a concert by a young Violinist in this same theatre. Unfortunately I did not take my camera, as at home in NZ, generally, you are not allowed to photograph whilst classical musicians are playing.
Thanks to the willingness of the man at El Teatro, I was able to capture some of the magnificance of this amazing theatre. Hope you enjoy the pictures. You can see more here in my flickr photostream.
