La BocaMay 10th, 2009 | Posted by in 14-Argentina
We had a fantastic day walking the streets of La Boca, one of the most popular and well known tourist areas of Buenos Aires. Known as the birthplace of the tango, this one-time shipyard has a famous walkway, the Caminito, where tango dancers perform and artists exhibit their work.
We chilled out, had a meal and a few drinks and soaked up the atmosphere. Sadly only two or three of these photos are actually ours, our camera battery died within minutes of arriving so we had to borrow a few shots from our rommies in order to write this post. Yes, bad planning on our part.
We would love to go back of a weekend when supposedly the streets are ram packed with performers, musicians and the like. It was great while we were there, but you can only imagine the atmosphere…
La Boca is also known throughout the sporting world as the home of Boca Juniors, one of world’s top football clubs. We could have gone to a game, but neither of us are all that interested in football so we decided against forking out half our monthly budget for two tourists tickets.
An amazingly colourful area.
