The good news is that Buenos Aires is home to one of the world's great bookstores, El Ateneo, a former theatre turned into both a shop and a meeting place. I should be able to find something there to satisfy my need to read!
After a day at the Cementario Recoleta, I'm thinking of something with a "Gothic" vibe. Since I have no review, I thought I'd at least share a picture. You could spend a week in the cemetery, and not see it all. Most people head directly for Evita Peron's grave, but it's the older (and less well attended) masouleums that are the most interesting, I think.
