The living among the beautiful Buenos Aires, Argentina
Most famous for its dead residents, from Evita to members of the Alvear family, Cementario Recoleta, known in English as Recoleta Cemetery, is also home to about 75 well-fed and well-treated cats. They roam among the tombs, and at 10am and 4pm, local neighborhood women feed and take care of them.  Watching them is one of the wonders of Buenos Aires, and sure to delight children and adults alike.

More will be added to this site in the near future.

Frommer's Buenos Aires


Frommer's Buenos Aires First Edition

Streets that look like Paris, warm hearts and souls that lead to long conversations and more, late nights out dancing until the sun comes out. If you know me, you know how much I love Buenos Aires. I'm already one of America's best writers on the city, and I recently completed the Frommer's First Edition Buenos Aires guidebook. It had always been a dream of mine to live in the city, as well as just visit, and with this book, I got my wish. Let my experiences and love for Buenos Aires and her people be your guide to this wonderful city. The book came out in July of 2005, and you can order it by clicking on this link:
