One, two, three and step … the tango, Buenos Aires’ sensual strutting dance, flounced out of the bordellos of Caminito Street a century ago. It’s still a hive of activity today – dancers prance on the cobbles, artists flog paintings and papier-mâché figurines wave from balconies. All against a backdrop of ramshackle toy-town houses painted in all shades of the rainbow.
