This is Calle Defensa during the San Telmo Fair. I think because of the size of the fair it is nicely match with the ToM Opulence.
Tango, arts and antiques have taken over San Telmo, the oldest barrio (neighborhood) in Buenos Aires. Cobblestone streets are lined with cafés, parillas, street performers and stunning colonial architecture. The Sunday Market (10 am – 4 pm) is a chance for tourists and locals to walk the streets and enjoy the artistic culture along with booths after booths of antiques and crafts. Calle Defensa is the main street the market is located on and is filled with mate cups, clothes, jewelery, hats, paintings and antiques. The shop owners in San Telmo are equally as quirky as the barrio. You will instantly notice the laid back and genuinely friendly atmosphere that takes over the streets.
