Just another street in Buenos Aires

    Newer Older

    While in Argentina, I wish I had more days in Buenos Aires, but I made the most of what i could. This usually involves waking up very early and going to sleep very late. It gets a little hard after a few days, but I get into "content acquisition mode", and I try not to make excuses for sleep!

    Many parts of Buenos Aires are very colorful and fun. I'm not sure how all these individual tenants get together to decide on colors, but they end up looking kinda cool, even with minimal coordination. I guess the guy on the left there just thought, "I'll paint my wall orange", and then he did it, and it just looks cool. It kind of reminds me of how rappers can put on the craziest hat in the world and it still looks pretty cool on them. I don't get it. I only look cool in one kind of hat - a baseball cap (with a mild tone).

      That's "Caminito" at La Boca isn't it? I'd hide and save the D3X around there :) be careful

      Ohhhh Camineto!!! I love Buenos Aires! This is an excellent picture.

      These buildings were actually painted by an artist years ago and this section of the barrio was restored mostly for all of us tourists.

      Buenos Aires is a wonderful city, defiantly spend more time there on your next trip.

      Caminito, La Boca. The story goes that the sailors living at this port used the leftover paint from their boats to paint their houses!
