Smoggy City

At first I thought there was a major traffic jam as I came out of the apartment block and saw taxi upon taxi back-to-back parked up with their engines running. But alas they were queueing for petrol! I don´t know if this garage is 5 centados cheaper or if it is due to the lack of petrol stations in the city and surplus of taxis, but now I know why the air in the city is so polluted, it is the fumes from the idling 40,000 + taxis - The name Buenos Aires may have been relevant many centuries ago, but now it is far from good.
