Why we travel: to see those small differences in the way things are done.
Like being able to buy empanada and Argentinian staples in COTO, a supermarket chain with a massive two-storey branch on Av Santa Fe:
Or a magazine stand (they still sell magazines, folks!) on a crowded subway platform:
Or a tricycle-riding juggler busking for the backed-up traffic on Av Sarmiento:
And the musicians in the Subte, their underground rapid-transit – oh, they’re good. High culture lives below ground in BA.
