  • San Telmo is the oldest barrio in Buenos Aires. It's packed with antique shops, colonial architecture and characters that belong to decades almost forgotten by the rest of the city.

    The guy in the picture was snapped Sunday morning. Dancing the Tango alone in the street. And they say it takes two. He looked just fine to me.

    Dancing like he was the last man on the planet, but still happy for a few pesos as he's not, he was in a peak state of Flow. He was once at the top of his game. You don't get the 'Incredible' moniker for nothing you know.

    Neither the lack of her physical presence or pride was going to stand in the way of him and his memories having a beautiful day. And though it was a smaller stage than he was accustomed to, the pavement beside the Havana Cafe', his performance was no less thrilling.

    Another one of those fleeting moments as you nip out to pick up breakfast that make travel so special.
