For those who do not know, Buenos Aires (or BsAs) has a Japanese garden. The Wikipedia entry on it says this:
The Buenos Aires Japanese Gardens (Spanish: Jardín Japonés) are a public space administered by the non-profit Japanese Argentine Cultural Foundation and are one of the largest gardens of its type in the World, outside of Japan.
Now, one of the things that you can be sure about a Japanese garden is that at it has certain elements to enhance the peacefulness and tranquility of the garden in line with that Zen feeling that it is supposed to evoke.
Water, maybe with some Koi for luck
Flowers, maybe like Irises growing along the water margains
Certainly cherry blossom
Together, it might look something like this… And I know you are starting to feel the tranquility already…
This is Argentina, not Japan.
A bit of a clue in this epitome of a Japanese garden – the tea room.
Did you spot it? The electric coffee maker?
