This is the statue of Lange Wapper, a Flemish folkloric character. He’s located front of castle Het Steen in Antwerp. Per Wikipedia, Lange Wapper is known for using tricks to approach women to get their breast milk. He teases drunks, cheats whilst playing with children and laughs like the devil. He is also known to turn cabbage into children.
This is Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. A enormous and beautiful building in its own right. But, it’s what’s inside that counts. This building is currently ranked as the third best opera house in the world. Teatro Colón opened in 1908 and has been in operation since. I would have loved to get inside, but that didn’t happen because I think it was a weekend (or too early in the day).
