Jan 13, 2015 Did You Know?

Earlier this month, I went on a wonderful vacation to Argentina & Uruguay. I had never been to South America before, and it was everything I had hoped for and more. Being a bookworm in Buenos Aires, my first tourist stop was El Ateneo. Once a theater in the 1900′s, this space was converted into a book store. Named the 2nd Best Bookshop in the World by The Guardian, Ateneo’s magnificent display of literature is not only difficult to process, but nearly impossible to photograph. Thank Apple for that panorama feature. Check out this glorious view.
