Here´s a small smattering of street art encountered thus far. We´ve also noticed an odd fascination with our very own Homer Simpson. The show is on TV (dubbed in Spanish, of course) almost every hour of the day and we´ve seen Homer´s face on everything from unhealthy snacks to alley walls. I can´t wait until we get to Buenos Aires and Rio, where graffiti is as common as bums are to San Francisco.
