Buenos Aires – Day 5 – Bar La Epoca

Day 5 started on my photography day with Foto Ruta and I had arranged to meet my guide for the day, Paula at Bar La Epoca, a barbers and hairdressers in the Caballito area of Buenos Aires.

The day started with torrential rain and as I got out of the taxi I found my feet soaked from the sudden torrent of water that had appeared in the road.  I had no idea what was ahead of me for the day but on arriving at Bar Le Epoca I was taken aback at what an amazing place it was with authentic age old surroundings

Men can go in for a traditional hot-towel straight razor shave and haircut and if there is a queue one can have a coffee or a tipple while waiting…

We spent over an hour here and I was so inspired! Loved all the bit and bobs, the characters and once again the stories!

This lady below had had her morning coffee and now was waiting for the rain to subside.

This gentleman went out in the rain and rescued this bird that was soaked!  It was so tame that it just sat on his finger.
As you know I do have a thing about chandeliers!
Here is a reflection in the cabinets of the umbrellas outside in the rain  – I waited for a red one to go by.
This is me with my new camera – Fuji X-E2 !
