People of Buenos Aires

Just arrived in Buenos Aires to attend a Latin American conference on Service-Learning.  The conference starts tomorrow, so I have a bit of time to walk around Buenos Aires.  Not far from the hotel was this boy roasting meat on the street.  I bought a sausage from him for 40 pesos, about 20 HK dollars. 

There were quite a few people offering shoe shining service.  But there did not appear to be a lot of customers.  

There are also people who seemed to be living on the street. 

There was a man speaking at a rally.  I couldn’t understand what he was saying.  But he is probably not pro-establishment. 

Another man seemed to be enjoying himself, sunning at the Plaza San Martin near the statue. 

Other people were scattered around the Monument dedicated to the War of the Malvinas (Falkland Islands).  

It is quite common to see couples being intimate with each other openly.  Here the young lady seemed to be parallel processing.  

A little girl seemed to have discovered something amusing at the train station.  

People watching in Buenos Aires is fun.
