A Day at the Feria

6 Dec

Porteños love their farmer’s markets and festivals on the weekends. Recently, we traveled with some friends about forty minutes outside of the city to one called Feria de Mataderos. Good music, great food, and gaucho games entertained the public throughout the hot afternoon.

Take a look:

It’s been a while since we posted. Recently, many of our other adventures have involved cooking at home. More on that to come!

    What fun!!!! This makes me miss Latin America! Wish we were gainfully employed this year and could come visit. I can see a lot of differences in the culture from these and other photos you’ve posted as compared to Guate. Buenos Aires seems more affluent, and based on at least how the “touristas” were dressed, maybe less modest.

    The “Africanos” pastries were something! In Guate I found they were more racist as well, as compared to US racial sensitivities. It was certainly not a taboo thing to tease about, anyway. Much less sensitive of a topic.

    Y qué tal con el español? Ya van aprendiendo poco a poco? Leí el post de Stephen en que les estaba hablando español y el señor no le entendió. Qué frustración! I know I hate that feeling. Pues, que sigan esforzándose y van a mejorar! Cada día va a ser un poco más fácil.

    Thanks for sharing! God bless you guys. Soak up every minute!

      Hola Corinne! Para mi, Stephen habla español muy bien, pero él es un perfeccionista. Lo estoy aprendiendo poco a poco. Puedo leer mejor que puedo hablar o escuchar. La gente no es conservada en su ropa porque el verano tiene mas calor. Es bueno escuchar de vos. Espero que todo bien por vos y Aaron:)

    You take such beautiful photos. I feel like that country is exploding with color. What kind of dog was that tan one? Cute!

      Thanks Sarah. Some of the photos have some tweaks from Photoshop, but muchas gracias nonetheless! I have no idea what type of dog that puppy was, but he was certainly loveable:)
