Trip to la Boca, despite my parents best efforts to warn me of the dangers. I evwn received a a4 page emai from ny mother:
Always walk in the middle of a group
Keep your handbag on the side facing the road
Stay clear of the children, they belong to gangs and WILL ATTACK.
No wonder I am paranoid.
Anyhoo,, La boca was beautiful,,, in a kind of tacky, kitsch way. Lots of brightly coloured houses and mini ferias, restaurants with tango shows and galleries. VERY touristy but definitely worth the visit!
