EL CAMINO PROJECT  An independent documentary about PLACES | FOOD | PEOPLE around the world. 🚌💨 Road-tripping South America in our VWT2 van 📍Buenos Aires, Argentina 🇦🇷

PLACES • BARRIO DE LA BOCA, Buenos Aires, Argentina
As one of the Capital's 48 neighbourhoods, La Boca is located in the city's south-east, near its old port. It retains a strong European flavour with many of its early settlers that arrived at the end of 1800s being from the Italian city of Genova. It is a popular destination for tourists visiting Argentina with its popular pedestrian street El Caminito. Although outside this tourist area, it is a fairly poor neighborhood. La Boca has a rich cultural history and a long track record of community solidarity, social anarchist politics and a lively arts scene. In 1882, the area was an independent republic with its own flag. It started as a work conflict that led to a strike. A group of the Italian immigrants decided to become independent from Argentina. They signed an act in which they let the then King of Italy know that they had constituted the "República Independiente de La Boca" (Independent Republic of La Boca). However, the then President of Argentina Julio Argentino Roca gathered his army and visited the site to lower the flag himself. That was the end of that conflict.

Among sports fans, Boca is best known for being the home of world-renowned football club Boca Juniors with its Estadio known as "La Bombonera" that can also be visited.

PLACES • CAMINITO, Buenos Aires, Argentina
It is a street museum and a traditional alley, located in La Boca, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires. The place acquired cultural significance because it inspired the music for the famous tango "Caminito" (1926), composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto. During the 1800s, a small stream flowing into the Riachuelo River ran along the same route where the Caminito is now. Later that century tracks for the Railroad were installed at the site. But when they closed Argentine artist Benito Quinquela Martín who lived nearby and was a good friend of Juan de Dios Filiberto, painstakingly prepared the walls facing the abandoned street, applying pastel colors, starting a cultural revolution in the neighbourhood and giving the street it signature look.

Caminito is a must when visiting Buenos Aires. A little bit crowded and of course too turistic but beautiful to see and enjoy.

PLACES • LA CASA ROSADA, Buenos Aires, Argentina
The Pink House is the executive mansion and office of the President of Argentina. Located at Plaza de Mayo and built in the late 19th century, the palatial mansion is known officially as "Casa de Gobierno" and considered one of the most emblematic buildings in Buenos Aires. The legend behind its characteristic pink colour tells it was an idea of Domingo Sarmiento, 7th president of Argentina, who had the exterior painted pink reportedly in order to defuse political tensions by mixing the red and white colors of the country's two opposing political parties. The biulding has been recently declared a National Historic Monument of Argentina, housing also an interesting museum.

Since being the scene of the 25 May 1810 revolution that led to independence of the country, this plaza has been a hub of political life in Argentina, something you can still feel now a days while walking around it. A lot of protests occur in front of this iconic building, so be prepared that there could be barriers or a fence erected around it on some days. .

PEOPLE • MAFALDA, Cartoon character, Argentina.
Mafalda is the main character of the so called comic strip written and drawn by the Argentinian cartoonist Quino (Joaquin Salvador Lavado). The strip features this 6-year-old girl, who reflects the Argentinian middle class and progressive youth, that is concerned about humanity and world peace, and has serious attitude problems, in an innocent manner. She often leaves her parents at a loss by asking, through incisive observations, about mature or complex topics. The comic strip ran from 1964 to 1973 and was very popular in Latin America, Europe, Quebec and Asia. After that Quino still drew Mafalda a few times, mostly to promote human rights. And most strips that were not too closely tied to then current events were republished in ten small books simply named Mafalda.

Here Lara posing with a life-sized statue of her and friends installed outside the old home of their creator Quino, in the San Telmo neighbourhood. We have known Mafalda since our childhood, and love her ❤. Our families have always been big fans of her strong social and political messages. Truly a timeless one!

DAY BY DAY • OUR TINY HOME ON WHEELS
A city as big as Buenos Aires is not an ideal place for the #vanlife. So during our stay in this huge metropolis we are staying in an airbnb apartment we've rented together with Lara's mum and sister. The Kombi is safely parked in a parking lot while we enjoy the goodness of this fascinating Capital.

FOOD • EMPANADAS CRIOLLAS, Argentina
An empanada is a stuffed dough made of wheat flour, baked or fried and with fillings that differ from province to province. The traditional one is made out of beef meat (cubed or ground) cooked with beef drippings and some veggies and spiced with cumin and paprika. Some other fillings consist of: chicken, cheese, onions, ham, olives, raisins, boiled eggs... there are even some sweet versions and an Arabian type. Empanadas are often served during parties and festivals as a starter or main course and there are several shops specialized in take-out freshly made empanadas. The dish traces back its origins to the Arabic cultures and was introduced in South America by the Spanish and their Colonies, making the dish one of the most popular ones in the country until today.

OMG Empanadas!! Gotta say this was not a new thing for us, there are versions of empanadas back in our countries of origin, we were already in love with them before coming here! But truth is, some Argentinian fillings are very interesting, so tasty. These empanadas pictured here are GLUTEN FREE. Lara found a cool shop in B.A. specialized in baked goods for gluten intolerants @celigourmet and they were truly some of the best we all have had so far.

PLACES • MERCADO DE SAN TELMO, Buenos Aires, Argentina
The San Telmo Market was built in 1897, to serve as a large, centralized fruit and vegetable market. Located in the neighbourhood of the same name, the Tuscan-style building, constructed by the prolific Italian architect, Juan A. Buschiazzo, has a beautiful interior structure with a wrought iron and glass atrium. At the time, it was the first private market and of its kind in the area. Today there’s not just produce to peruse but antiques, second-hand clothes and curiosities.

A great building to visit due to its stunning structure, but it is often quite dead during the week, getting busier on weekends, especially when tourists visiting the nearby San Telmo Antiques Fair stroll through. A so recommended flea market, as we've been told, cause haven't had the chance to visit it. .

PLACES • GRAN CAFÉ TORTONI, Buenos Aires, Argentina
This iconic coffeehouse located at Avenida de Mayo in Buenos Aires was inaugurated in 1858 by a French immigrant. It was named Tortoni after the Parisian café of the same name (where the elite of the Parisian culture gathered in the 19th century) and inspired by the elegant European coffee houses of that time. Selected by UCityGuides as one of the ten most beautiful cafes in the world, it used to be frequented by some of Latin America’s most celebrated intellectuals, such as the writers Jorge Luis Borges and Julio Cortázar, the musician Arthur Rubinstein and the singer Carlos Gardel.

Lovely place to stop by for a morning or afternoon coffee ☕️with some Medias Lunas 🥐(the Argentinian name for mini croissants) when touring the city center. Old school waiters and beautiful art nouveau decoration, filled with marble tables and Tiffany lamps, are the stands of this gorgeous café, an integral part of the porteño landscape and lifestyle. It also hosts, each evening, a live tango show, if you are interested.

PLACES • BUENOS AIRES, Argentina
It is the capital and most populous city of Argentina, located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata.
The city of Buenos Aires is the most visited city in South America and is known for its preserved Spanish/European-style architecture and rich cultural life. Several languages are spoken in the city in addition to Spanish, this is because in the last 150 years the city, and the country in general, has been a major recipient of millions of immigrants from all over the world, making it a melting pot where several ethnic groups live together and being considered as one of the most diverse cities of Latin America.

No better way to present this beautiful city than this picture that reflects its similarities with Paris and Madrid, for the first time since we are in the continent it kind of felt like home for us. We have enjoyed it at Max, even on rainy days.

PACES • COLONIA DEL SACRAMENTO, Uruguay
Another great scene from our walk around the old town.

We are here today because our Ferry to Argentina leaves from Colonia's port. We are glad we finally decided to do it from here and visit the city instead of crossing directly from Montevideo. So worth the visit to this pictueresque old town!
