Meet the correspondents: BUENOS AIRES > Edgardo Minond



Buenos Aires, calle Caminito, La Boca

"On gray days colors actually show up better in this uncharacteristic neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It was here where Italian immigrants who had just arrived to South America used to settle. It's a very pictoresque place.

It's said that the colors of these houses came from the paint that its residents —lacking many resources— used to get from the fishermen making a stop on the port. This wonderful multicolor patchwork gives the neighborhood a unique identity within the eclectic metropolis of Buenos Aires, a city more French and Italian than Latin American.

Soon I'll be able to show you more drawings of my surroundings here in the Southern Hemisphere."
