Another day in Buenos Aires is another opportunity to explore more of its neighbourhoods.  We'd been planning to see some live tango, but didn't want to pay to go see it at a dinner/show, so we opted to go to San Telmo, where dancers perform for tips at Plaza Dorrego.  We took a seat at one of the cafe's on the square and soaked up the most historic barrio of Buenos Aires, which fittingly has many antique shops...

From there, I convinced everyone that it would only be a short walk to our next barrio, although as always, it ended up being a long walk.  La Boca is a barrio with a distinctly Italian flair.  The neighbourhood is also home to Boca Juniors, one of Argentina's most famous futbol teams and we passed by their stadium, La Bombonera, on the way.  La Boca's a good place to buy souvenirs and to take a break at one of the cafe's while watching dancers perform...
