Wednesday Photo Nights #15 : Lujan, Argentina

This morning I was stumbling around the net and I saw this story about the World’s most “dangerous” zoo, where you can ride lions and feed bears with your mouth. I’m not a rabid animal right advocate, but there is something inherently wrong with a person can ride a full grown lion. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time, before someone is hurt badly or worse. Anyway, my memories of Lujan aren’t big lions or crazy people petting bears but rather the town itself. Getting to Lujan from Buenos Aires, is very simple … take the Transporte Atlántica bus – Line 57 from Plaza Italia – it’s about a 90 min bus ride and it cost me 30 pesos. I assume that it should be a similar price now. Don’t forget to get a street dog … “Super Pancho” time … I love it!

Once you’re there, here is a high level list of things and places you can visit while you’re there.

  1. National Basilica Nuestra Señora de Luján
  2. Downtown Historical Area
  3. Devotional Museum of the Virgin
  4. Provincial Historical and Transport Museum (Museum Complex “Enrique Udaondo”)
  5. Paleontological Museum “House of Ameghino”
  6. Río Luján Riverside
  7. Religious images and objects Street Market

As a photographer, I was mainly interested in the Basilica and riverside areas … but everything else is right the corner. It’s a small town.
