Can You Tell Me How to Get, How to Get to Calle Defensa?

The name San Telmo dates back to a Spanish priest who English speakers would refer to as Saint Elmo. Just like the Elmo we know lives on one of the coolest streets you could ever hope to be on, the Mercado San Telmo which spans across blocks of Calle Defensa is one of the coolest places to be in Buenos Aires. Well, at least cool for tourists…I’m definitely not in with the non-tourists here yet.

The open air market is filled with things to buy, things to eat, music to listen to, and a surprising number of strangers inviting you to pay for an opportunity to take a picture with them in a risqué tango pose. What is not to love?

I think this comparison is way too much of a stretch, but I’m going through with it anyway. Check out the cool people and things on Buenos Aires’ Sesame Street.
