A trip to the past

La Plata was founded in 1880, on purpose, to become the capital of the Province of Buenos Aires. It was carefully planned, so it is a very neat town (it is familiarly called "city of diagonals").
Actually, I do not know the city; I was there just one afternoon to visit the awesome Museo de La Plata with a group of Biology teachers (like me) and a Paleontologist, to "meet" fossil animals.

La ciudad de La Plata fue fundada en 1880, a propósito, como capital de la Provincia de Buenos Aires. Fue cuidadosamente planificada, por lo que es una ciudad muy ordenada (familiarmente se la llama "la ciudad de las diagonales").
En realidad, no conozco la ciudad; estuve allí sólo una tarde para visitar el imponente Museo de La Plata con un grupo de docentes de Biología (como yo) y un Paleontólogo, para "encontrarnos" con animales fósiles.

    A very informative page with great photos of the skeletons! The Museum building really does look impressive too, why can't they build them like that anymore?!
