More from Argentina… Caminito

Caminito is a street museum and a traditional alley, located in La Boca, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires. The majority of the Italian immigrants that lived in La Boca worked in the port,  and they painted the outside of their homes with the leftover paint from the shipyard – as nothing else was available or could be afforded. This is the reason why it’s so colorful. I’ve seen picture of this place before, and I thought I had to come, but, I imagine something different, I thought it was little town, that people lived there but it turned out to be a shopping alley, with lots of Argentinean souvenirs… mmmh not what I expected, it just didn’t seem real you know, but it was ok, I had a good lunch there, and I loved the colorful buildings.
