Buenos Aires is a city of passion and politics, but what makes Buenos Aires and Argentina unique from any other place is the culture. The essence of what Buenos Aires is can be explained through its music, food, and extremely kind people. One merely has to walk the streets of weekly fairs like the one in the San Telmo area of Buenos Aires to be able to experience these three things. Walking down the streets of San Telmo your senses are stimulated with the smell of warm sugar donuts filled with dulce de leche, roasted nuts, and empanadas.Though often filled with tourists, the San Telmo fair draws local families looking for jewelry or simply a Sunday afternoon stroll. So take a stroll through San Telmo, eat a donut, and let the live musicians serenade your Sunday.
