The Japanese Garden :: El Jardin Japonés

(en) It's not the most beautiful Japanese Garden I've ever seen, but there was a simple beauty to it. The absence of cars honking in the streets, a cup of bitter Jasmine green tea, a red Japanese bridge and おみくじ (omikuji) gave us a moment of peaceful quiet in a city known for its energy. Not to mention noise.

(es) No es el jardin japonés más bello que nunca he visto, pero habia una belleza simple sobre el jardin japonés de Buenos Aires. La ausencia de los autos tocando las bocinas, un tasa amargo de té verde de Jazmín, una fuente japonesa roja y los おみくじ (omikuji) nos dio un momento silencioso en una ciudad bien reconocida por su energía, no mencionar por su ruido.

Not the Zenful Fountain It's Supposed to Be, but I Guess This Will Do

I plan to visit the Japanese Gardens toward the end of my trip to Argentina (I'm leaving next Thursday, woohoo!). The last time I was in Buenos Aires, I went to the Botanical Garden which was rather nice and tranquil. It sounds like there's a similar feeling at this garden too. Thanks for sharing the photos.
