Day 49-50

Day 49-50: a muddle and an explanation So I have been in a muddle lately of how to portray the Korean community in Buenos Aires.

Day 39

Day 39: Avenida Avellaneda took a colectivo to Avenida Avellaneda to find out more about the garment trade. I visited a store of an acquaintance and spent my whole day with her and her friend.
