Gumbo's Pic of the Day, April 3, 2014: The Bored Waiter, Buenos Aires


During our first day in Buenos Aires, while on a tour of street art in the city, we came across this scene while waiting for a traffic light to change.  It was early afternoon, about 1 pm, and this waiter was standing in the door of his restaurant, clearly bored.  With only one patron to serve, I guess this is understandable.  Portenos usually have a huge late (after 10 pm) dinner and don't eat a big breakfast or lunch, but this is light traffic by any standard.

I never talked to the man, nor will I ever see him again.  But I do remember thinking, "I'm glad I enjoy my work more than he seems to".
