In Buenos Aires one of the landmarks is the obelisk. Sometimes it is in the distance
and sometimes it is close
It looks the same from all directions, and is visible from several angles since several streets converge at it, so it doesn’t necessarily help you get a handle on where you are.
Both my husband (wearing the hat in the picture above) and I felt that Buenos Aires would suddenly shift direction as we walked along, and north might become east. The obelisk may have been its pivot point.
