BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

January 3, 0937 HOURS ARGENTINE STANDARD TIME (ART)


It is hot, the type of heat where steam rises off the cobblestones and air-conditioning units work overtime. Taxis swerve in and out of the hordes of tourists. Not far away, legs, lots of legs, walk along the sidewalk and bodies swerve to the sensual music of the tango.

The scene is broken by a cartoñero, a street person who survives by collecting garbage and waste cardboard. The cartoñero wheels a heavy cart among the dancers.
