ARGENTINA LOVE

__

10 amazing days in Buenos Aires. Soph and I jumped at the chance to be part of the 6-O Clock Tea, an annual event showing the work of several Argentine designers, and one international designer. This is the home of the Ambassador of Uruguay, where we showed our Fall 09 collection.




Our daily schedule in was more or less as follows:
10:00 wake up
10:30 drink coffee and eat chocolate for breakfast
11:30 watch Alf in Spanish
12:00 sketch and make collages for silk prints
2:30 eat steak
3:30 antique/wander
6:00 more coffee
7:00 read Collected Fictions of Jorge Luis Borges (Sophie),
read Motley Crue Bio (Lisa)
9:30 steak with Malbec
12:00 more Malbec
1:00 bedtime

This is quite possibly the most beautiful Burger King in the world. Its located on Calle Florida in the home of Anne Diaz, who is considered a mother of the city. This would be roughly the equivalent of putting a Burger King in Martha Washington's bedroom at Mount Vernon. Which actually may help drive traffic there. Whatever works I guess..







Killer steaks, really good coffee and excellent cocktails- 90% of our diet in Buenos Aires.







La Recoletta Cemetary with gorgeous ancient family crypts and many, many, many cats.






And what cemetary experience would be complete without some awesome Goths hanging out and doing performance art-

  7. We had an AMAZING time. Buenos Aires seems to be the opposite of New York- it has a very languid, relaxed pace, but all the people we met were very enthusiastic and curious- not like all the jaded New Yorkers here. It was so refreshing!
