Tierra Santa

This was just bizzare. We read in the Time Out about this religious theme park in the northern part of Buenos Aires called "Tierra Santa" and had to go check it out. The concept was you just walked around this "recreation" of Jerusalem at the time of Christ and could see all these life-size recreations of biblical events. As you can see, the depiction of said events followed the typically subdued latin approach to religion. After seeing the crucifixion, you could then move on and get shashlik. Or watch a belly dancing show. Or leave your own prayers in their recreation of the wailing wall. Fun for the whole family!
