HOW TO HAVE A COOKOUT, ARGENTINE STYLE

I’ve always told people to constantly keep your camera with you. While having your camera isn’t a guarantee that you will always get good photos and a great story, NOT having it with you will mean it’s a 100% chance of not getting it.

Saturday I was walking up Federica LaCroze on my way to find something to eat. I have a friend that owns the RapiPago on LaCroze and I stopped to talk with him a moment. He doesn’t speak English and I don’t speak Spanish, so our conversation wasn’t detailed and long.

I was able to figure out though that he was getting ready to have a beach style barbeque right there on the sidewalk, so I stuck around for the food and friendship.

While I was shooting, I got an education on cookouts, Argentine style.

BE GLAD THAT YOU CAN JUST THROW DOWN THE CHICKEN ON ANY HANDY TABLE AND CARVE IT UP. DON’T WORRY ABOUT SALMONELLA, GERMS OR A PESKY HEALTH DEPARTMENT SHOWING UP.
