Last weekend, the city of Buenos Aires hosted two cultural festivities celebrating Mexico and Paraguay on the popular Avenida de Mayo. This was a great opportunity for the invited countries to share their cuisine, traditional dances and music.

The Mexican and Paraguayan Festivity were located on Avenida de Mayo, the Mexican across Plaza de Mayo meanwhile the Paraguayan on between the streets Cerrito and Uruguay. Vendors were offering many cultural crafts and foods. In the busy street, people waited in long lines for tacos and quesadillas and the Paraguayan offered sopa and guayaba. The Mexican festivity had the popular Mariachi singing on stage  the spectators to sing along.

The Paraguayan festivity not only had dances and music, but poetry in one of their indigenous tongue, Guarani, and in Spanish. People cheered, it echoed the city’s old European architectural buildings and some people were seen with tears in the eyes of joy and probably some of sorrow of their previous struggles.
