Last Day of May

Today (31 of May, does that even make sense?) I walked a lot around Recoleta and Palermo. Photos are nothing special -I know- but you can have an idea on how random streets of Buenos Aires* look like on a beautiful autumn day :)

*Buenos Aires, the city where public squares have Facebook.

 I still haven't had the chance to see The Avengers. I've been waiting for that movie for almost a year, so this is completely unacceptable. This week I'm going to the cinema. Punto.

Photos are from London. Last summer. I love those old fashioned marquees.

Unreal Tenses

Unreal Tenses: We used them to express regret that things are not different, to tell other people what they should do, and to talk about things that we would like to happen.

This is a grammar lesson I've just learn in my English classes. I think it's brilliant in very different levels. Apparently, I've been doing some serious unreal thinking/living these days. At least now I know how to call it. If only.

The photos are some random neighborhood film photos. A billboard that reminds me of Carrie, and my fruit stand of choice (recently named and painted). Hope you like them.

Slunchy Sunday

Here in Buenos Aires this last couple of weeks were rainy, cloudy and even foggy. Today was no exception. Although, I manage to crawl out of bed (at 2pm) to meet the girls and have a lovely Sunday afternoon. We went to the Hipódromo, then to the Casino, and later after an insightful conversation with a super cool taxi driver (the typical Argentinean one) we end up having a sluncher* in Oui Oui.

Photos, as you can see, are just from the Hipódromo. In Oui Oui I was very busy eating like a castaway.

How was your Sunday? x

*I've just discover that word thanks to my friend Carola. It's perfect.

Bye Bye American Pie

"Not Cruel Enough". Barbara Kruger.

 "Your misery loves company". Barbara Kruger.

 "Tulsa". Larry Clark.

Untitled (fragment). Jean-Michel Basquiat.

"Living Series". Jenny Holzer.

Yesterday I visited this amazing exhibition in the Malba called Bye Bye American Pie that shows the  works of seven amazing American contemporary artists: Barbara Kruger, Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jenny Holzer, Cadi Noland and Paul McCarthy.

The exhibition was curated by Phillip Larrath-Smith and it is really a unique opportunity to see (and feel) all this art pieces in the same space and at the same time. The atmosphere created it is very special, because all the photos, paintings and installations seem to be delicately connected in order to tell a story (our story) that is both beautiful and decadent. It is definitely a very moving and inspiring display.

You have until June 4th to go and see it, so if you happen to be in Buenos Aires, don't miss it!

May Day at the park

At the end of the afternoon I stopped being lazy and went out to the park, rented a bike and wandered around until my ears and hands got frozen. I took some photos too of course, the day was lovely :)
