2 kioskos

Kiosko - drugstore/deli- in Argentina. They can be found at about every st. corners in Buenos Aires. You can find anything you're looking for, they are generally open until late at night. The shops vary in size, in what they offer, and in colors. These 2 kioskos are small, and the window is the only opening to the pedestrians. Often crowded with items, it is difficult to notice the vendor usually hidden behind. Other bigger kioskos exist, which I will show you on a later posting. Kiosque en Argentine- drugstore/deli (aux Etats-Unis). On peut les trouver a presque tous les coins de rue a Buenos Aires. Et on peut pratiquement y trouver de tout (ou presque), ils restent ouverts tres tard la nuit. Ces boutiques se differencient par leur taille, par ce qu'elles offrent, et leur couleurs varient aussi. Ces 2 kiosques sont petits, et seule la fenetre est accessible aux pietons. Ils sont souvent encombres de produits, il en devient difficile d'apercevoir le vendeur souvent cache a l'arriere. D'autres kiosques, plus grand, existent, je vous les montrerai dans un autre article que je publierai bientot.

I'd get claustrophobia inside - especially in the summer.

Curious, some things are so similar to here yet different somehow.

What's funny, is that I never read the comic Mafalda. I should start reading it while I'm in Argentina ;)
