Farewell to another bit of Buenos Aires

Fri, 11 Jan 2013 15:40:14 +0000

Last night I carried my two year old daughter down the steps of the Primera Junta subway stop in the neighborhood of Caballito. Mila had never ridden a subway before. I wanted her first experience to be on the wooden old cars of the A line. We’ve been intending to take her on that line […]

An incredible photo tour of Buenos Aires

Mon, 22 Oct 2012 15:38:14 +0000

On Saturday I went on a photography tour that is a great way to experience Buenos Aires, and I strongly  recommend that everyone place Fota Ruta high on a list of things to do in Buenos Aires. I put tour in italics since this turned out not to be a guided tour at all. Plus, it’s not […]

Sounds of tango in the air

Mon, 20 Aug 2012 17:44:21 +0000

Sitting at my desk today I’ve been hearing the voices of tango singers floating up towards my 7th floor balcony. With hundreds of other apartments visible from my window I assumed a neighbor had taken on a new obsession & had started a practice of playing the stereo extremely loud. Eventually a slight tone made […]

El Histórico in San Telmo

Sat, 02 Jun 2012 15:54:24 +0000

Last Friday for the May 25 holiday we ventured out to San Telmo (how I miss living there) to dine at El Histórico. (I forgot to bring a camera.) We enjoyed the food very much & the building is fascinating. It deserves an entire post all about the place, but I don’t have time for […]

To celebrate the long holiday weekend here in Argentina & the U.S. (as well as my return to blogging about Buenos Aires) the 4 Days in Buenos Aires app for iPhone is free for this weekend. And, if you’re into apps, you’ll definitely enjoy the Recoleta Cemetery iPhone app. You’ll have to buy that one, […]

Fútbol fans: don’t wake my baby…

Thu, 24 May 2012 02:40:43 +0000

A friend of mine says, “The most heroic task of a parent is getting their child to sleep each night.” Ah, that’s a challenge. Mila & I have our routine. It’s changes every few months. The process usually takes about 45 minutes. (Yes, to those of you without children: parenting takes a lot of time.) […]

A Return to Buenos Aires

Tue, 22 May 2012 20:40:50 +0000

The inactivity on this blog was largely due to my absence from Buenos Aires for 2010 & 2011. I spent that time down on the coast of Argentina in a very small place called Mar del Sur, which proved far too small. We then moved over a bit to the larger town of Miramar. (Oh, […]

Guided Tour of Recoleta Cemetery

Thu, 25 Aug 2011 03:16:53 +0000

Without a doubt, Recoleta Cemetery is the most enchanting spot in Buenos Aires. Even after dozens of visits I still discover a new aspect: a tomb gone unnoticed or the slant of light through stained glass. Indeed, the cemetery is different depending upon the time of day and weather. And there’s all that history of […]

iPhone app: Buenos Aires in 4 Days

Wed, 11 May 2011 04:05:15 +0000

My personal recommendations (a tiny guidebook, if you will) for enjoying 4 perfect days in Buenos Aires: also available as an app for iPhone. You also can use it on your iPod Touch or iPad. So, take a look at my first app-based travel guide to Buenos Aires. It’s amazing what you an get for […]

Interlitq opens the door to the Spanish-speaking world

Thu, 17 Feb 2011 18:30:35 +0000

One of the things that keeps me too busy to blog often here is my work with The International Literary Quarterly, also known as Interlitq. One of the exciting developments with the literary journal over the past year is the inclusion of more works by authors writing in Spanish, such as Argentine writers María Teresa […]
