Street Light of Boca

The neighborhood of La Boca in Buenos Aires, Argentina is known for its colorful buildings. The tradition started because the residents couldn"t afford to buy paint to paint their houses and stores, but they were allowed to take whatever paint was left after a ship was painted in the local shipyards. Free paint, but they didn't get to choose the color. Sometimes there wasn't enough of one color to paint a whole building so you ended up with multiple hues. Then the Artists got involved.
