I couldn’t really blog about Argentina without including a tango sequence for you, so here’s a taste from the streets of San Telmo.
We also explored around La Boca area, home to the infamous Argentine football club who Maradona played for. It’s actually a very poor and high crime area but couple of streets have been aimed at the tourist market; lots of souvenir shops, cafes etc….which to be honest completely ruins the place. It’s good for a few photos but other than that we were in and out of this area in 40 minutes. It’s a good example of how not to develop an area for tourism; it was so in your face it was completely offputting. Anyway most of my photos managed to cut out the masses and just give a flavour of the houses which are mainly made from corragated tin and wood.
