Tango in Caminito
Argentina is famous for the Tango dance and music. Tango originated in Buenos Aires and spread to the rest of the world soon after.
Caminito is a little 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. Argentine artist Benito Quinquela Martín applied pastel colours to the walls of biuldings in Caminito street.
