The ‘Biblioteca Nacional Mariano Moreno’ in Buenos Aires might be a bit of a mouthful to say but it’s definitely worth a visit, if only to check out the architecture. There’s something about concrete and a splash of colour that catches the eye. I could add a little bit about its history but I’ll leave that up to you to click the link and I will remain the semi-silent photographer type, if only to hide my ignorance. The queue outside would suggest that the exhibitions it holds are also worth checking out but, as always, I didn’t factor in the time. I was on one of my many wanderings and stumbled across this place by accident, somewhere a long way away from where I started.

Having spent only three short days in Buenos Aires, I’m looking forward to going back there at the end of the trip for a couple of weeks. Just taking the taxi ride to the domestic airport Jorge Newbery was enough to show me that I may need to do more than just wander around aimlessly to get the most out of what this city has to offer. It is, after all, the city of my birth!
