Cafes are very much a part of life here. Many of them — especially the older, more traditional ones — are staffed by people for whom waiting tables is a lifelong profession.

The city's terrific web site has an excellent photo report on the waiters of Buenos Aires.

Look at their faces. Notice how they are dressed. And take a second to study the background and see the cafes in which they work.

I, for one, am a big fan of waiters in spanish-speaking countries. Always have been. Probably always will be.

The photo gallery with their comments was classic - perfectly captured the essence of the pride the BsAs waiters take in their profession. I was especially delighted by the last waiter's quote: 'una confesion de amistad gastronomica'.

And where the heck is this La Puerto Rico?? I must come back for a visit. ASAP!
