Last weekend Neil and I did a few things on our "to-do in Buenos Aires" list: shopping the ferias in La Boca and the Design Center in Recoleta, touring MALBA the art museum and the theatre-turned bookstore El Ateneo.
The highlight of the art museum, besides this bench, were works by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. I didn't have the nerve to photograph them.
I saw this book three times over the weekend and finally bought it at MALBA.
It is a coffee-table photography book called "Grandes Mujeres/Almas Gemelas" ("Great Women/Soul Mates"). The first half is portraits of everyday elderly Argentine women; the second half is portraits of Argentine identical twins of all ages, guys and girls. I love old people. And twins!
The highlight of Mother's Day was breakfast at Nucha. I know, I know, it was Sunday. But we had a great time talking and eating this insane, INSANE spread:
It's on the menu as tea for two, and it was insane: a basket of breakfast breads served with jam, dulce de leche (caramel), and cream (!), medialunas (croissants), your choice of brownie AND a slice of cake from their specialty bakery, assorted chocolates, your choice of teas, toasted HAM AND CHEESE SANDWICHES, fresh-squeezed orange juice, scones ... I think that was it. IS THAT NOT AN INSANE amount of food?!?!?!
