23 of 24

La Boca, Buenos Aires

I left that man at bench.., A group of kids was walking near me, talking loudly and smiling …
Suddenly I heard like a strong whistle.. I saw the kids looking at a balcony, above..
There, waiving to the children, was a piece of our history.. a resume of our passions…
Our most well known, and most loved tango singer, Carlos Gardel, was there…
a myth that survived till our days. A music composer, also, he died at an accident in 1935; still now, it is said here, “he sings each day better”…
Besides him, it was Evita Peron, another of our myths, a woman who cared a lot about poorest
till her last breath and who was loved and hated with same strong feeling..
a symbol of how was our fervour for politics, being from a political party or other.
Finally, Maradona, our myth that brought joy to most people here that love football with all passion.. the blue and yellow at the wall are the colours of his team ,
a team that was born at this quarter.. Boca Juniors.. Those colours, not knowing which ones to choose, were those of the first ship’s flag that would enter to port… and it was a Swedish one!

I saw the balcony, past and present.. i saw the kids, our future..
My smile became a deep emotion…
i think it is time now, to reach the last image.

Puestos a soñar, algo que consigue esta gran galería, veo a los habitantes "estáticos" de La Boca, despidiendo a quien nos ha hecho disfrutar durante unos días de un paseo inolvidable por este peculiar barrio a orillas del río Riachuelo. -V-

G for Gardel, E for Evita, M for Maradona..together they spell GEM, and that's what this photo is, another gem from the poet of La Boca....and it's a fitting image of three mythic heroes who would thrill the hearts of the immigrants who became proud Argentinians, and worked hard to build the country
