the san telmo antique fair on a balmy sunday -

a few blocks into the city from our hotel, is the san telmo district,
a stunning mix of run down french building, cobblestone streets, and a street antique fair every sunday. since we had just gotten off the plane. . . we though it was a must.

for the shoe lovers in you, wooden shoe maker forms:

for connie, "el samurai" booth:

me? i was just lovin the sun:

the tango being danced in the streets:

down this one alley between buildings led to courtyards where wedding dresses and white linens were draped from balconies, with both artistic intent and total disregard:

connie pointed out that "this is a very landis wall". true:

courtyard opened to courtyard, ending in a roofless market:

christmas is near here. as we were reminded in odd ways at every turn:

filming this city is going to be magic.
