  Entertaining on Av. Florida
by Bwana_Brown

During our very enjoyable walk along the pedestrian-only Av. Florida with it's many shops, we came across this band from Peru. They were playing some very nice tunes at this little intersection not far from Plaza de Mayo.

A good crowd was gathered around to listen to their tunes and singing so we stopped as well. One warning though is not to stand below the eaves of the large old buildings in this area, since eaves are also where the pigeons sit!

I spoke briefly to the lead musician to find out where they were from, before donating some cash and continuing our walk toward the Casa Rosada (Presidential Palace).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
