    Default Music in The Street

    Yesterday in San Telmo, the oldest neighborhood in Buenos Aires.

    Singing no doubt the popular ballad, "My beautiful oppressed Malvinas, I dream of you nightly rightly" ???

    Who's the old guy with shades leaning on the window, the owner of their instruments (except for that of the percussion section)?

    Notice that only the musicians are smiling (except, of course, the guy blowing the clarinet). Was their music really that bad?

    (A few more of the 1,000 words this pix merits.) Obviously you're a pro Dan. Thanks for sharing.

    Question Re: Music in The Street

    What exactly is the vendor selling?

    No a-SKEE-mo there?

    Her cart says "garrapiñada mani cascara tutuga” which I think means caramelized peanut turtles.

    Sounds good! Are they worth 5 pesos ($1.24) or did you try them?

    What about the Argentine empanadas?

    I did not try them, but generally these food cart items are good, just like in New York or Washington DC. Once I went to the doctor in DC and he asked me if I had recently eaten at a sidewalk vendor. I actually had not, but I enjoyed with some regularity a half smokey sausage with chili from a street vendor (was always afraid to ask what the other half was). Some of the empanadas are great. My favorites so far are from the La Pharmacie, especially the sliced beef in a rich mushroom/wine creme sauce.
