San Martin, War Memorials

Walking from the train station back to the hotel, we passed a building interesting not only for its architecture, but also for its educational window display.  The subject: local bats.  

Across the street beautiful Plaza San Martin and the war memorials commemorating those who died in the Falklands War.

Up the stairs and through the woods past lovely sculpture


to visit the impressive monument to San Martin, liberator of Argentina.

Back at street level, I had to do a double take.  Was that really an arctic exhibit?  Yes!  And to tell the truth they did a pretty good job of reaching arctic temperatures.
