From Congress to Congreso

The outside of the Congress building in Washington DC …

… does bear a certain resemblance to the Congreso building in Buenos Aires.

Or should that be the other way around?

Argentina’s constitution is modelled to a large extent on the United States’. Both countries are federations. The United States’ national Congress consists of a House of Representatives and a Senate. Argentina’s national Congreso has a Cámara de Diputados and Senado.

Both have separately elected Presidents, though in Argentina, like France, it’s the popular vote that matters.
