Re: Buenos Aires -- Cappucino in one of the city's many cafes

DrFumblefinger ·
It is a great way to start a day, or to perk up an afternoon! Italians don't drink Cappucino except in the morning (they don't believe you should put milk on top of their lunchtime tomato sauce). I however, don't have that hangup, nor do the Argentinians.

DrF, I've never been to S. America so I'm fascinated by this one and all your pictures from BA. Please, keep them coming and I so look forward to the blogs to come.

Thank you, PortMoresby. I know you would enjoy Argentina -- probably more so the smaller towns and cities than massive Buenos Aires. The journey is still new and we're in Patagonia now -- very much looking forward to seeing everything here.

Re: The most beautiful bookstore in the world? A visit to El Ateneo, Buenos Aires

This is definitely on my to do list now. Thanks for the great pictures. I wish that Brentano's and Scribner's stores in NYC were still with us, they were the most beautiful stores I have seen.

Re: The Colorful, Gritty Barrio of La Boca, Buenos Aires, Argentina

GarryRF ·
Full of charm and colour DrF. I suppose if the tourist trade brings in bus loads of dollars then you have to keep up appearances. Don't want to frighten folks away. I've been told if you look European (non Latin) then its not IF you'll get robbed - it's just when ! But I don't know if its just a bit of a folk story ! No worse than staying at home maybe.

I'm a cautious but not paranoid traveler, GarryRF, but the warnings from the portenos were so frequent and so intense, you'd be a fool not to pay attention to them. The area around Caminito is well policed (dozens of police around), so I wouldn't worry about going there. But if you don't look like a native, best not to wander the neighborhood. La Boca is charming. But it has a rough edge to it. Be careful if you go.

Re: Mercado de San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina

PHeymont ·
It's amazing how much, for so many of us, our travel experience focuses on food and how people get it—and because public markets reveal so much more about local foodways than any supermarket can, it's wonderful to see these pictures. I can almost feel and smell! With all the markets we've featured lately on TravelGumbo, including the wonderful gallery on village markets in Asia as well as the public markets in Europe, the U.S. and now Argentina, perhaps the food aspect of "Gumbo" is coming...

Re: Mercado de San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina

My first experience of a "Spanish" style market was in Menorca. A small island off the east coast of Spain. The Island of soldiers and cows the locals called it. We had our kids with us as we went around the market square calling at each of the butchers shops. None had steak for sale - but would have plenty at 3pm ! So we returned at 2:45pm. We could hear the excitement but there was no one there. A few minutes later a bull was dragged into the marble floored market square. Kicking and...
