Evita’s Mausoleum in the Recoleta Cemetery

So, I recently found out that Eva Peron and I share a birthday. And oddly, the day of her death falls on my mom’s birthday. As an icon in Argentina who is still remembered and revered, I wanted to put this Suh-Weet Shot up of her mausoleum entrance around a significant date in her life. Well, I couldn’t very well put it up on mom’s birthday now could I? Born on May 7, she became a global icon whose image was shaped and solidified (for better or worse) by Andrew Lloyd Webber. When you visit Buenos Aires, the Recoleta Cemetery is typically part of the tourist’s route. Just follow the crowds and you’ll wind up at her resting place. If you really want to learn more about her, take a cab or a longer leisurely stroll to the Evita Museum from Recoleta (I’ve walked it. It is possible). There’s a good deal about her early life, time as the first lady of Argentina as well as information about the whole sordid affair of her body being stolen and missing for years. Tonight I won’t cry for you Eva, but I just might raise a glass of Malbec to you.

    That’s pretty wild about the coincidence of the dates with Evita.
