Pic of the Day: Flea Market in Buenos Aires

Old Doll 2907

I don't remember where this pic was taken in BsAs. But I like the way it turned out. Now that I have some time on my hands, I'm going through the old pics from BsAs and pulling out some of my favorites to share with you. I hope you like them.

Hi!! I know this is going to sound weird but I´m from Cordoba , Argentina.I´m a student of English Translation at the university. I was looking for some information about the Farm Protest in English for school and I discover your blog. I think it´s amaziiiiing!!. You cannot imagine what is for me ( a person who is constantly studying the differences between you Americans and Brits!!!!) to find a person who is doing the same with MY culture.And even more, now that I´m going to the states in December!!! Hope you enjoy your stay here!!!

All the best! Fred

Thanks for the complements Lucila. I'm glad you found my blog useful.

Fred, Our friends told us about the Argentine bakery. I need to go there for an empanada fix. I hope they have Havana Alfajores too. BTW. It looks like we are going to be moving back to Arlington. When are you moving to BsAs?

Hi Dave,

We should be in BsAs by Nov 30th the latest! busy doing unpacking etc in Irving, and making the final arrangements. The cafe is interesting, but I don't remember seeing Havanna products. Miami had a few Havanna stores, but some of them closed. (grrr)We're staying in Arlington right now, a mile from the ballpark. Nice construction by the stadium (Cowboys)

Dave,

I was just at the bakery in Irving yesterday. They have home made alfajores (My Argentine wife gave thumbs up to the home made chocolate mini's) and they have imported Terrabusi Alfajores, not Havanna.
The empanadas looked VERY appealing, and there is the usual chorizo, and mortadella etc. Enjoy.
Fred (In Arlington right now)

Fred: Thanks for the scoop. I'm running low on my havannas. I'll go there for the Alfajores and empanadas. Got to get our housing situation settled first. Looks like it will be Arlington again.

Our first house there was just off of Ballpark north of I-30. We loved being able to walk to the ballgames.
