On Saturday we went with the boys to the Bombonera, that's how we call Boca Juniors Stadium. We took them to visit the museum and the field. The youngest did not know it. The truth is that we go several times to see Boca play, but it has a different view when is matchtime. The crowd don't let you see details that are hide in every corner. During the summer we go for any administrative matter or simply a walk, as this time. Had the camera with me.
Sobre la calle Del Valle Iberlucea hay una serie de pinturas que evocan el aire inmigratorio de los orígenes del barrio pintados por Rómulo Macció, pintor argentino; que uno nunca mira. Miren pués....
On Del Valle Iberlucea Street are several paints with the imnigratory aspects that formed La Boca City. They were painted by Rómulo Macció, argentinean artist.
This beautifull mural (actually are two) by Pérez Celis, also an argentinean artist, is totally made in little ceramic pieces, concrete and bronze. He was such a fanatic of Boca Juniors, that when he died the ceremony was done at the Stadium!
Shops and conventillos outside the Stadium.
Conventillos were the first houses that inmigration (especially from Europe, Italian most of them) build whem they arrived in Argentina. These houses were made with poor materials and in one convetillo used to lived about 4 or 5 family, one in each room. They shared one bathroom and one kitchen.
