I walk the streets of Buenos Aires almost everyday. Often the same few streets because I walk the same direction to the café where I write most of the time. Every once in a while I go exploring, or meet up with a friend elsewhere in the city. Yesterday I met with Stephen Page, an American poet who has lived in Buenos Aires for a very long time. Here we are standing, appropriately, with a wall of books in a café in the Almagro barrio. Below this photo is the trashy little barrio nameless café where we actually spent a couple of hours, because el Archibrazo was closed when we got there.
Walking to Almagro from Palermo that morning, I stopped here and there to take a few photos. Here are some of them.
Finally, three photos of homeless people living on the streets of Buenos Aires. These photos were taken in an area of a couple of blocks near where Av. Medrano runs into Plaza Guemes.
So it won’t be all sleazy cafés and street people, here is a pretty girl waiting at the corner, near Plaza Almagro.
