STORIES / Gallery 2: Mira Mar General Store, 2014

The Mira Mar general store was opened in 1882 by Juan’s great-grandfather. Just to get there one must drive over a sandy dirt road that meanders for about twenty kilometers, a trip that can discourage quite a few. Juan says he takes one day at a time, and organizes meals and traditional music and dance get-togethers in order to make some extra money to keep this old store from falling apart. His aging mother lives across the road from him, helping with what she can.Near Bolívar, Buenos Aires Province
