It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

A Sunday in San Telmo

Walking down the street, crowds of people selling everything under the sun, crowds of people shopping, eating ... turn a corner, ahhhh, a quiet street, a few people about ... a church and then... what is that I hear ?

The cinematographer needs practice but you get the idea, yes?

All those strings! All those accordions! Or were those concertinas? :-) Either way, this is what I think of when I this of Buenos Aires!

That's nice! Isn't it lovely to be in a place where when you get a surprise on the street, it is something wonderful?

Pearl, they are Bandoneón ( a type of concertina ) ...
When we walk Pup in the park there is almost always someone with a violin or bandoneón, just playing music or singing. They love music here .. you hear it everywhere.. ( a good subject for a blog :)

Anony, yes, that feeling of a delight waiting around the next corner or on the next street is lovely ..
