From Palermo we caught the 29 bus. By doing so we got a fantastic tour of the city on our way to Boca. Unfortunately, going somewhere like this makes us hate being a tourist. Everything was geared up to entrap us into either a shop, a restaurant or an artisans array of poor quality merchandise. It was dirty, it was tired, it was full of dogs poop, it was totally uninviting. The street is short. As we tried to walk along there was someone every few yards trying to force a flyer into our hand to entice us into their restaurant. (8 flyers in 4 minutes has to be some kind of record?)That lure included the promise of a free Tango show but there in itself was a lesson. Without exception, all the Tango couples looked like they had far better things to do - totally bored. They too look tired!! We did wander round the block and in fact ventured one road off the tourist trail. Here was the only saving grace. Small local "sell everything" kind of shop where the homemade empandas were the best we've had in Argentina for only 5 pesos each. Go everywhere else in Buenos Aires before coming here.
