Wanderlust: Buenos Aires

I was digging through my pictures when I came across these shots from my trip to Buenos Aires earlier this year. A friend and I were assigned to a job that gave us the chance to take in the sights and visit an antiques festival where we wandered around in the glorious January summer sun and drank cold cheap beer while checking out the treasures in this quaint little market.

I remember marveling at the choice of artwork on display and the brightly colored murals covering the walls of so many old buildings. We wandered around all day, searching for trinkets to bring home. I finally scored an antique soda fountain dispenser in a delicate shade of pale green glass and a Superman comic in Spanish, dated 1961, for my husband, both totaling less than $20 USD.

It was my first trip to South America, which makes it that much more nostalgic to have come across this little set of images (most were taken with my iPhone). Looking at these takes me back to the sights, smells, and tastes of this vivid city. Thought I’d share my wanderlust with you. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
