Plaza de Mayo: Banging drums and swearing in a president


Argentinians sure like to bang a drum and I got to see a whole lot of it today when Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was sworn in as president for a second term. (She's the first female politician reelected in Latin America.)

Pres  Explode

I was in a hurry, trying to find my way to Foto Ruta for a photography treasure hunt when I hit huge crowds gathered at Plaza de Mayo. Masses of flag-carrying, drum-banging, chanting supporters walked in a parade behind the president on what I now understand is a very historic day.

Flags  Red

At the time I thought everyone was doing the peace sign at me, turns out it's a big V for Victory. It's a pity New Zealand's newly elected prime minister John Key didn't get this kind of celebration when he won a few weeks ago. Here's a video I took of the parade, before I had any idea what exactly I was witnessing.
