Sundays are quiet in Buenos Aires. I still find it unbelievable how this busy city could just go quiet. This is normally the day when people go out with their family and friends to enjoy a relaxing day.So what do the people of Buenos Aires do on a lovely Sunday morning?
Porteños love roller blading, cycling and jogging in one of the many parks in the city or at Puerto Madero.
Andrey and I have been to a lot of these places on a Sunday when we were still living in Buenos Aires. We didn´t go roller blading because I think I would kill myself but to photograph people and soak up the sun.
What I enjoy most is to find a place where the people don´t notice me. Then I start watching them through my lens. You might call me a stalker and maybe I am, but I thoroughly enjoy watching the people. When they see me the moment is gone and I have to find a new target.
People are very entertaining to watch especially when they roller blade or cycle. The guys normally help to adjust the skates of the ladies and I don´t blame them because they get to see beautiful legs! There are a lot of concentration but also laughter amongst friends. It looks like wonderful exercise too and is not limited to a specific age.
Street skating is very popular in Buenos Aires. A large group of people get together and enjoy this social activity on the streets. Street skating is also very popular in cities like Paris, Munich, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, New York, London and Frankfurt.
So if you find yourself in Buenos Aires and you feel like joining the crowds for some nice roller blading but find yourself without skates, don´t worry. You can also rent skates at some of the parks. A fun way to enjoy a lazy Sunday morning or afternoon. A fun way to explore Buenos Aires!
