This is the last part of the review about the touristic routes in 

Buenos Aires

Here you can find the first part. And the second one can be found here.
Although still, the vast majority of the locals prefer to picnic in other parts of the city, for example in the  "

Reserva Ecologica

" park or in the parks of the Palermo district. It is safer there because there is extra security. 
Anyway, you should keep in mind that Buenos Aires is a city of contrasts, where a prestigious area and a slum can sometimes be side by side.

Palacio San Martin

", the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs is inside.

It is also, most likely, cheaper to film in Argentina, as there are a lot of such places.
The Obelisk is another tourist attraction. There’s nothing interesting in it, however, it’s a symbol of the city.

91buenos-aires-touristic-routes.jpg92buenos-aires-touristic-routes.jpg93buenos-aires-touristic-routes.jpgIn Buenos Aires, the pedestrian must be careful: pedestrians using the zebra crossing are not allowed to pass, and if you stand on the crossing, you may get knocked off inadvertently.
Generally, the politeness of Argentines varies depending on what separates him/her from you: if you’re face-to-face, then the person is polite. But usually, the locals are impolite on the subway, and drivers are impolite to pedestrians.
