Don’t Cry For Me Argentina…

So it took me 17 years to finally head back to the country where most of my childhood was spent…Argentina. One of my childhood best friends invited me back and it was just the invite I needed to go back. I traveled to Argentina in  April 2014 with a layover in Miami. The flight was about 8 hours from Miami.

Once I arrived in Argentina, my friend picked me up from the airport and we headed straight to her apartment. I was ready to see Argentina again…this time with gleaming eyes and an open heart.

On one of the days we got to visit La Boca. This was actually on my bucket list. I remember going as a child but wanted my memory to be refreshed. La Boca is the oldest, most colorful and most authentic neighborhood in Buenos Aires. The neighborhood was settled and built by italian immigrants that worked in the warehouses and meatpacking plants in the area.
