Caminito, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Postcards from Argentina are pretty rare in my collection; I think I only have a couple from there. It's a shame, as it looks like a very beautiful country. I had seen pictures of Caminito before and always loved the bold, vibrant colours. Now I have a postcard of it!

Caminito ("little walkway" or "little path" in Spanish) is a short street in La Boca, a neighbourhood, or barrio of the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires. It retains a strong European flavour, with many of its early settlers being from the Italian city of Genoa.

The stamp is from a set of 4 issued earlier this year, regarding the World Cup Football.
