buenos aires

Buenos Aires is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It's like Paris fell into a rainbow of bright colors and decided to let loose.

The architecture that reminded me of Paris...

But B.A. has its own colorful South American flavor, with its iconic La Boca and San Telmo districts.

La Boca's colorful buildings were originally built with pieces of shipping containers, and the locals have continued the vibrant and artistic tradition.

It's a small area, teeming with tourists, art, sidewalk caf├ęs and tango performances, but it's still worth a stroll-through. And sometimes you get lucky and get a little corner to yourself.

One thing I love about Buenos Aires is the abundance of great places to walk around, and San Telmo is my favorite.

The street musicians are really good, and the markets have such artful displays, it doesn't matter if you're interested in what the vendors are selling. You can just enjoy how beautifully they've showcased their wares.
