Graduating in style

Argentines celebrating college graduation

Recent college grads after being attacked with eggs, flour, soda and other edible goods.

I first thought this was a massive egg fight taken to the streets. The victims stood in the middle like helpless targets as those around launched all sorts of colorful goodies.

This was the first picture I took in Buenos Aires, one year ago. This was my introduction to Argentine customs.

Later, I learned that this is how Argentines celebrate college graduation. Pretty awesome!

    Thanks for sharing! I had thought that in Italy the graduate dresses up in crazy outfits while his friends make fun.
