As we venture away from the dock and into the forrest-lined river, we pass a riverboat that has long since run aground. The rust covering the tin-roofed cargo boat is a clear indication of the history of this river. The aged buildings, peppered into the scenic landscape, all seemed as if they could tell a story. The river had been running long before people went there and will be running long after they're going. As the paint of the houses peal and the boats drift ashore, all human interaction with the waterway eventually becomes part of Tigre's history.
Just as the semi-tropical forest engulfs the remains of the man-made along the river, the lived-in home of Horacio also seems to be surrounded by plant life. Argentina demonstrates and interesting relationship between nature and the made made. The tropical bushes seems to almost be imbedded into the house, which is situated a short two to three hundred meters from the riverbank.
