I was back in Buenos Aires for a while this week. Had a nice time in the emerging neighborhood of Barracas, thanks to this New York Times article.
One thing the web does quite well is help me get away for a minute, for an hour, for as long as I need. Sometimes I learn more about places I’ve been, and long to return to.
So now I want to return to Buenos Aires and see what’s happening in Barracas for myself. I want to see the work of Marino Santa María, who took it upon himself to make each house a work of art with mosaics. Hartford could use a Marino Santa María.
Aside from falling in love with B.A., I have something of an emotional investment in the city. It’s where I left my mustache during our visit in March, 2007.
It’s nothing Tony Bennett would sing about, but it’s worth humming a little tune for me.
So, where to next?
