Buenos Aires Carnival Tips:
• Wearing easily stained garments such as silk to carnival is NOT recommended because kids run around spraying foam indiscriminately, but don’t worry about street clothes as the ‘carnival snow’ generally dissolves quickly.
• Be careful with expensive cameras as well because non-local carnival visitors are big targets to be ‘foamed’ by mischievous youth.
