Just caotic

This is a typical patio in the San Telmo quarter. Lots of antiquities, craftsmen and rare books...but this patio is just caotic.. they piled up all sorts of things: veranda parts, little ceramic angels to be used outdoors, vessels and some strange things I can not even decipher. Anyway, its a really cool place to go because it has the right vibe between traditional and interesting. The building is also historical, but most of them are in San Telmo. There in the corner you can see two men... well, they were negotiating, the owner had a laptop, that didn´t fit in the picture at all and the other one was a Dutch man drinking beer and poiting at things that he wanted to have shipped to his homeland. I guess he bought a ton of things!

Everything is stacked whimsically but yet with good taste. I mean in all the picture has some old fashion ambience that I like.

It is choatic and didn't make things very attractive...but the thing is some people can spot treasures among these...not me, don't usually have the eye for it.

have been there once, I think, old building, entry by a passage, two floors, little café in the second one, some little shops there too, near a square (can't recall the name), usually crowded, in San Telmo. Maybe not; but it did call back the memory. nice place anyway. nice photo.
