I went to Buenos Aires last week for a couple of days. Most of the day was spent in the car, going from one client to another. It let me time to shoot from the passenger seat and give you a glimpse of how the city looks outside of the touristic areas. Lot’s of billboards, lot’s of color and lot’s of passion.

Two years ago, we had just left Cuba and returned to Mexico. Having visited Cuba a few years before, I revisited some of the common misconceptions about travelling in Cuba. I also wrote about a wonderful way to discover the country, that is by lodging in casas particulares.
Below is a series of pictures which I had not posted at the time. For more on Cuba, visit my galleries on my portfolio website.

Today was the day of the children in Argentina. It is a pretty big thing here and probably the happiest day for kids after Christmas. It used to take place on the first Sunday of August but was moved to the second Sunday because most parents get paid at the end of the month’s first week. No money, no gifts. Then, a few years later, it was moved to the third Sunday of August because elections often took place on that day.
Morale of the story : Money comes first, then politics, and finally, kids. (click on picture for high res)
