"Little street that time has erased ..." So goes the famous tango written by Juan de Dios Filiberto about this amazing little street situated in La Boca. Almost all of the buildings are constructed out of metal sheets, the most striking thing about it is its varied and garish colors. It is this way because the sailors who have lived there all painted their houses with paint residues left over from the boats. Today Caminito is a great place to visit on a Saturday afternoon or a Sunday. People from all over the world, including from Argentina, and locals get to see the universe in two or three blocks, revel with tango dancing in corners, with samples of street art, and good and cheap grills that look over the street.
The incredibly long Corrientes Avenue is a paradise for music and book lovers. I have never been to any other place in the world where there is such a huge number of bookstores per square kilometer! Walking down this street is like soaking up the cultural life of the locals. There are hundreds of music stores, all kinds of books, video games, toys ... Every Avenue breathes culture, passion for knowledge, social consciousness .... Perhaps because I am a lover of books, this is one of my corners in the world. I never tire of walking up and down this street (the Obelisk of Palermo Viejo van almost two hours walking). It is also possible to get to it on the "underground", it is about six stops from the center of Palermo.
Along the coastal path you can see beautiful beaches - Thermes Marins, Santa Terisita, Mar del Tuyu (where we rented a house), all with great food, thermal baths and plenty of holiday homes for rent. Costa del Este, Mar de Ajo, Carilo, Santa Clara, Mar del Plata, Miramar, Pinamar, etc..
The train leaves from the Retiro station, one of the hundred districts of the capital Buenos Aires. On the rails, linear and routine transit make its way. A slow and fast moving one, then another and so successive stops to Vicente Lopez. During the tour, you can see a parallel road that is like a silent companion.
The pedestrian street, named ST NICHOLAS, is the main street of the big city in the Province of Buenos Aires, and has been ever since it was constructed. It is the street where you will find all the main shops and banking institutions, so during the week days it is extremely busy. There is WI-FI, so sitting in one of its many banks, you can make use of your note-book or net-book without having to sit in a bar or cafe. In this photo you see it is empty as it was very late on a weekend night.
This house in the heart of the city of Blue in the Province of Buenos Aires in Argentina. It is one of the few houses made by Francisco Salamone, director architect restless multi sown monumental works throughout the pampas of this province. It is located at the intersection of Columbus and Belgrano, near the Blue Square , to which it bears several similarities as well as with other works of Salamone, such as the distinctive semicircular balconies of some town halls. Other works by Salamone Architect in Blue would recommend visiting:
It is an old bike that I saw whilst passing. The ladder on the side makes the photo look very dynamic. It suggests that the person using the bike stopped there (maybe because of a flat tire) and entered on the right hand side. The photo first makes you look to the left and later backwards towards the steps.
