After a quick stroll around the plaza, we headed over to Calle Defensa to check out the street fair. It's a random mix of antique dealers, artisans, craftsmen, and people just selling junk. We bought a few cool items from a couple of vendors but mostly just browsed the sights and enjoyed the street musicians and tango dancers.
No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Those are, in fact, Baywatch card games in the photo below. And the creepiest doll ever made . . .
On our way back to the apartment, we took a little detour through Plaza San Martin, a lovely park filled with people lounging under the trees, pet lovers on leisurely walks with their pups, and random dance shows for anyone strolling by.
I loved all the different trees in the park. Those beautiful purple ones (left) were all over the city. Does anyone happen to know what kind of tree that is?
More from Argentina coming soon . . . :)
