The day before Halloween, Zombies invaded Buenos Aires. The mob assembling in Plaza San Martín, gathering momentum and numbers until they spilled out of the plaza and took over Calle Florida on their way to the Obelisco. The ‘flash mob’ was a huge success with thousands of zombies ambling around, screaming their lungs out and marching to the call of the bullhorn’s siren. The costumes ranged from a bit of white foundation with a red smear, to full on latex gaping wounds, to one man even carrying a cow’s brain in his hand all afternoon. Not only was the afternoon full of wicked amusement (including a choreographed Thriller dance), but there was a canned-food drive and a blood-drive.
