Do you know your Bs and As?
Bs As, the city of 'good airs'; my most anticipated city to hit up in SA, and (cue drumroll!)... could just be my favourite, yet! I love the sophisticated European feel of neighbourhoods like leafy Recoleta and Palermo, contrasted with the rough but characterful Latin charms of San Telmo & La Boca. One of my favourite barrios is vivid, and very much working-class La Boca, which sits at the mouth (translated as Boca) of Rio Riachuelo. A melting pot of colour and creativity, it's distinctive streets with brightly painted corrugated buildings are teeming with local artists, and even a tango dancer or two giving impromptu performances on one of Boca's street corners.
