You ride the train. This week the Star takes us along on a train ride through and around the southernmost city in the world: Ushuia, Argentina. The train is modeled after the ones built in the early 1900s. These trains were crafted with the utmost simplicity — small, narrow and uncomfortable — as the cars […]

Buenos Aires On Foot

Saturday, January 9, 2010

It was some weeks ago that I was on my way to Recoleta, a barrio in Buenos Aires, to check out Latin America’s largest bookstore. I decided to take the bus as opposed to the underground because the routes are a bit more comprehensive. That day, by chance, a young man asked to sit next […]

Christmas Eve was a unique experience. The roomies and I got to hang out with some people that we have met, drinking wine, eating beef, and watching fireworks go off from the rooftop terrace.

A Bookstore Behind The Beaten Path

Saturday, December 19, 2009

I believe that no matter where you go you need to know where to find a decent bookstore.
