Feb 3rd 2011 7:24AM Great article. I currently live in Buenos Aires and I love San Telmo on Sundays. While bustling through the crowded street fair can get a bit stale after a few weeks, the cafes and milongas you speak of definitely do not.
Moreover, let's not forget that if you want to go out on Sunday nights in Buenos Aires, San Telmo also has the best boliches (or clubs) for that.
Feb 1st 2011 9:18PM Great post - incredibly interesting! I am glad to hear that the Brazilian government is stepping in where the Peruvian one is failing. These peoples definitely need protecting, both from governments / corporations seeking to profit from the land they live on, as well from over-curious tourists and adventurers who would unwittingly spoil their way of life for the sake of a good photo and story. The problem (if we can call it that) with Western culture is that it only takes exposure to it to destroy these indigenous cultures. Once they become aware that a Western world exists, it would is very difficult for them to prefer their own. Granted it may take a generation or two, but that is a blink of an eye in the big scheme of things.
