  1. All the buildings are the same height.
    Wide boulevards making it easy for invading armies?


  2. Paris only goes six stories, so it’s not there. A hint is in the cabs, it seems: those yellow-topped cabs sure look like Buenos Aires cabs (though Santiago’s look very similar). But where? The height and quality of the buildings makes me think we must be somewhere near Avenida Alvear.

  3. I say Buenos Aires and Recoleta, given the left side blaconies, and air conditioning units on the other buildings. Definitely a decent neighborhood.

  4. Excellent job to all those who said Buenos Aires, but especially to canuck_in_ca who got the location spot-on! This was taken from the balcony of our apartment looking towards the corner of Callao and Alvear.
