Follow me to the barrio of Barracas, Buenos Aires. Here the amazing women of the Community Center and Soupkitchen prepare food for the children of the nearby kindergarten and the people in the neighbourhood. It is a place where people can have lunch together and receive some extra food to take home.

These ladies you see in the video are amazing, doing great work for the community. I had a wonderful time, helping where I could and trying to speak some Spanish. Seeing a different part of Buenos Aires is something to never forget.

This is my goodbye present for them, they all love to sing and dance to 'cumbia' music, which you hear in the video.
