It's difficult to explain, but it's everything: my neighbourhood, the smell of the city, the buildings, the people...
I know we don't have good fame and all, but just a minority is arrogant, the rest of the people is very nice. Everything is fast in Buenos Aires, you do a hundred things a day without even noticing, the time flys here.
Every neighborhood is different, it looks like a different city, you can't compare them.
You have "La Boca", where the Boca stadium is. There, the houses are quite unique, they're painted in different bright colors. It's a tradition now, but a long time ago the people that lived there had to go to the port to ask for the remaining painting from the boats, and that's how they painted their houses. For example, the colours of "Boca Jrs" team is blue and yellow because of Sweden's flag. The people could not decide which color they would use so they said they were gonna use the color of the flag of the next ship that would arrived, and that ship came from Sweden.
I'm sorry for the ramble here! LOL I got a little carried away, I'll send you a pm later Rogie to tell you more things to you and I don't bore the rest of the people!!!
Gracias!! Nice photos!! I love the name Boca Juniors, kinda cute!! Monisimo, como Gaston y Rogi y Juanqui...
