I realise I haven´t written anything on La Boca, a district with El Caminito and all the colourful houses and what I suspect might be the birthplace of Mr Blobby. We visited this on the Sunday, passing the Boca football stadium as we went and... (look, let´s be honest, you´ve probably all read Will´s more detailed post on La Boca already. Like 4 days ago. I´ve completely missed the boat on this one and I apologize if you feel as if you´re being backtracked. I honestly won´t be insulted if you close your browser right now. Go on, do it! If you do want to carry on reading then thank you, I won´t let you down. Now where was I?)... yes, La Boca. It´s very colourful. Although if I´m being honest, although it was genuinely great and it´s definitely something you can´t miss, it did feel a tad theme-park-ey, just because there were so many tourists and there were these funny cartoon statues in the windows. Nevertheless it was a very cool thing to see. The walk back took us through what we later found out was a pretty dodgy, dangerous area. Not that it would have been a problem if we´d been hassled, cos we´s bigmens.
Anyways, as much as it saddens me to disrupt the perfectly chronological order of my posts so far, I´m going to have to put a spanner in the works and slip this one in from Sunday 4th March (Shivers in a Mr Burns like way).
