Next week I’ll be embarking on another intense work trip beginning with two solid weeks of guidebook research for Rick Steves. A few readers might be thinking: oooh, how exciting! what a glamorous job! Certainly some fun moments will occur, but overall the schedule is so tight that there’s little room for glamour :-)
Don’t be jealous… although you should be. The Kavanagh is a Holy Grail to architecture buffs worldwide, & I scored a visit inside today.
Remedios de Escalada in the southern suburbs of Buenos Aires may be off most people’s radar, but it contains a testament to Argentina’s industrial past that’s very interesting: the largest, privately-owned railroad workshop that the British built outside of the UK.
Since I’ve become such a fan of Buenos Aires architecture, I’m beginning a series of posts about our best architects to highlight those who have made BA such a joy to walk around. There’s no better place to start than the grandfather of all BA architects, Alejandro Christophersen.
I’m not an enormous fan of tango, but there are quite a few songs that I’ve grown to love… most sung by sassy Tita Merello.
