Street Vendor Selling Chocolate Bars in Buenos Aires

Street Vendor Selling Chocolate in the Puerto Madero neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina
If you take a walk through Buenos Aires you will notice many street vendors selling any kind of goods in the streets of the city. This woman was offering chocolate bars to passer-bys. While she is probably selling ice cream and popsicles in summer, chocolate, of course, is much more in demand in winter. Her business is tough at all seasons and I watched numerous people decline. Still, she had a good site between Microcentro, the business district, and Puerto Madero. There at least she can count on some solvent clientele.

Oh, boy, that's a tough way to make a living! Hopefully, she will sell a lot of candy bars.

You certainly have a lot of interesting action on the streets of Buenos Aires...thanks for sharing it with us!

Street selling has to be one of the most difficult ways to make a living. I might be tempted to buy some chocolate though:)

This woman reminds me of an aged version of 'The Chocolate Girl', a painting by Jean-Étienne Liotard.

The inmigration of Bolivia, Perú and Paraguay is the problem in the streets of BA. All there work of vendors ilegally (sorry my bad english) that woman, and others vendors in the pics, are of countries neighbors.
