Anyhows I walked down florida street and found the central bank. I went inside and they check you through a metal detector like at the airports. Then you are questioned about your business in the bank. When you finally get to the bank on the second floor, there is a floor manager who directs you to the right location. But this isnt just any old bank, I tell you with the soft lights, comfortable arm chairs to wait in, a lounge atmosphere its just so plush and relaxed that you feel live your at a coffee lounge in a Monte Carlo casino
On my way back thru the city I came accross a busker plaaying flamingo and Man this boy can play the guitar.I say play cause he could really play and I say boy because I reckon he was no more than fifteen. Have you ever been to a performance and felt so moved that a tear or two may escape, well this kid moved the strings on his guitar like the devil himself. I couldnt see his fingers they were just a blur I kid you not.
After he had finished I found myself totally moved by what was without a doubt the best street performer I have seen in a long while and whilst I promised myself to go easy on the spending over the coming week, I gladly forked out the 15 pesos for this young mans homemade CD. Lucas Alvanaz is his name and he plays like he`s been at it for 40 years. 15 pesos in our language is $5.00.
After a coupla hours in the city I head home via the subway, by now I am totally at home in the subways, directions and connections are relatively easy once youve done it a few times
I didnt mention this in previous blogs but on day one or two in Buenos Aires I saw a bloke kick a pigeon and thought to myself that poor pigeon but after being here for over a fornight I feel like kicking them myself, they are everywhere and boy are they a pest in some parts of the city you are literally tripping over them. The tv here is funny because they have dubbed all the shows in spanish and when you are watching Buffy for instance it feels like you are watching a really bad b grade affair no matter how pollished the show may be. (Not that I`m watching Buffy) I will upload a video of Lucas playing his guitar in the mall.
Love tu yous all
My adventure has just started
PS , I came here with a mission and by god I will complete it
