Dos puertas de la ciudad de China de America del Sur


I was rather surprised to find only two Chinatown gates in South America. They are located in Buenos Aires, Argentina and in Lima, Peru. Below are a photograph of each of these artistic structures:

One would think with numerous megacities like Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Caracas, and Bogota, there would be other Chinatown gates on the continent of South America. Hopefully, over time additional gates will be added in these and other cities, as they are an important and beautiful symbol of an amazing culture.
