Photos of Buenos Aires III (January 16-19, 2008)

Elaborate graffiti in San Telmo, the oldest of the Buenos Aires neighborhoods. The cobblestone streets are lined with antique shops, art galleries, tango bars and cafes.
The Puerto Madero neighborhood, full of nice restaurants and new condominiums
The colorful neighborhood of La Boca, a historic portside area of predominantly Italian immigrants
La Bombonera, the Boca Junios stadium, in the center of La Boca. The Boca Juniors have won a South American record 17 international titles, second only to AC Milan in world soccer. One of the most famous Boca players was Diego Maradona.
A young boy sells refreshments from the window of a house across from the stadium. Many of the homes in La Boca are constructed of brightly colored corrugated iron.
