La Boca Section of Buenos Aires
La Boca is one of Buenos Aires' most colorful districts. Italian immigrants were the first settlers of La Boca, and the working class neighborhood was Buenos Aires' first port. Today the buildings in the barrio are painted in bright colors. These buildings were painted with leftover paints from the ships in the harbor.
Many local artists were selling their wares, while others danced the tango for the many visitors.
