The barrio is surrounded by the big avenues of Corrientes and Cordoba, but a little bit far from the city centre, you really have to take the subway and get off in Carlos Gardel Station, I do not need to explain why this place has its name, hahahaha :)
But you will come across with an impressive construction, today it is one of the best shopping centers in Buenos Aires, but it used to be in 1934. It was the biggest fruits market in South America.

Durining one of our walks in San Telmo we encounted a man putting on a puppet show. Children and people gathered around his little stage. If you watch ; it's only polite to throw some coins in his tip box as a sign of appreciation.
Conocer a un autentico Cicerone "Porteno"
Viajar a un pais extranjero siempre es un agradable reto. Nosotros tuvimos la suerte de contactar a la Organizacion Cicerones de Buenos Aires (ver su Website)
Un feliz encuentro nos llevo a disfrutar de la gratisima compania de nuestro Cicerone Daniel Pena ,. "Porteno" con amplio conocimiento de la historia, y cultura de Buenos Aires y de la Argentina.
Su grata conversacion y sentido del humor nos sirvieron como una introduccion ideal al FASCINANTE, basto y polifacetico mundo de Buenos Aires.
Si ustedes tienen la inquietud como yo, no duden de contactarlos , y si tienen la suerte de conocer a alguien como Daniel, habran ganado un amigo en Buenos Aires.

Snacks you can buy on any supermarket
Some tips on stuff you can buy on any supermarket or at most "kioscos" (the argentine version of a convenience store), when trying to stuff that backpack for a day trip or a walk around town OK, we've all been in a foreign country, and just pick up some snacks at the supermarket, but don't know what to get because we don't know the brands. Some tips:
- Cookies: If you like Oreos, you may want to try "Melba"s. These are strong chocolate cookies with a creamy center, but not as overpowering as Oreos (I can eat more of them than Oreos for sure). You can also try "Rumba", which are slightly sweeter and mellower. And of course you can find Oreos, but be adventurous for the love of God!
- Wafers: Hands down, "Opera" are the best, lightest wafers around, with a hint of orange in the filling. Warning: you'll eat a pack in no time. If you want a more european wafer (multiple layers of creams, etc) try the "Champagne", which have a two flavor (strawberry-lemon) filling.
- Crackers. There's plenty of good crackers around. For a good fiber boost, get "Cerealitas", a multigrain cracker that goes great with everything from dulce de leche to ham. If you want a regular cracker, similar to a saltine, try "Traviata" or "Criollitas", both of them very good.
- Yogurt: Drinkable yogurts abound. "Entero" means from whole milk, "Descremado" or "light" is made from 2%. A good drinkable yogurt is "Sancor Yogs", which comes in both varieties. "Ser" is another good brand, specializing on "light" products
- Chocolate milk: "Cindor", hands down. You can find it in small bottles or a 1-liter "brick" pack
- Spreadable cheese: Forget about the crummy spreadable cheeses from the US - these are killer. Try the "Tholem", Gruyere flavor on your crackers. Also the Tholem with Queso Azul (blue cheese) is very good
- Salami and other sausages: Salame can be found everywhere and it's usually delicious. Also, if you want a kick of spice to your snack try Longaniza Espanola / Chorizo Colorado, a redder version with plenty of flavor. Everything I mentioned is in the 1-2 pesos per unit at any supermarket (except for the salames, which run around 5-6)
