More Eva Peron

Eva Duarte Peron, the Evita of the Broadway show and Madonna’s poor cinematic imitation, still has a grasp on the imagination of some Argentines.  Here are three images taken on a 2008 trip to Buenos Aires.  The first shows the cover of the guide book handed out at Museo Evita , which is more shrine than museum; the second, the gate of the Duarte crypt in Recoleta Cemetary, which is usually decorated with fresh flowers; and last, one of the plaques that flank the gate to the Duarte family crypt.
