Leaping dolphins / Delfines saltarines



These playful dolphins are to be seen in the fountain of the Plaza de la República Argentina. Nobody calls this place by its name, though -everybody says "Dolphins' Place" or "Dolphins' Fountain". As an anecdote, the Estudiantes basket team celebrates its victories here...not that often lately.

Estos juguetones delfines pueden verse en la fuente de la plaza de la República Argentina. Sin embargo, nadie llama así a este lugar: todo el mundo dice "plaza de los Delfines" o "fuente de los Delfines". Como anécdota, el equipo de baloncesto del Estudiantes celebra aquí sus victorias...últimamente no demasiado a menudo.

Dolphins look alive in your picture just about to jump out of the fountain.

Pareces muy refrescante. Me gustan las fuentes de Europa. Aqui no son tan comunes.
