Newspaper Kiosk Sales in Buenos Aires

Newspaper kiosk with a wide choice of magazines in downtown Buenos Aires
In Buenos Aires you will find a newspaper kiosk at every other corner. Like elsewhere, the Internet has revolutionized the way news is communicated and newspaper sales dip continuously. But still they do play an important role in daily life of the Porteños. Once a year, however, all newspaper kiosks are closed for the "Día del Canallita" a big feast at which the newspaper salesmen come together and celebrate. The newsstand owners work all year even on national holidays such as the Revolution Day, May 25th (1810).

Interesting. This looks like one of our stalls on the streets except that they are packed with pirated CDs/DVDs.

I wish I could blow it up and look at the many titles. It's fantastic.

The newspaper kiosks and the big number of bookstores is something that surprised and pleased me when I visited your beautiful town in1997...
