Buenos Aires Street Guide
LibrosEnRed, 2011 - 80 pages
Who was that guy? Why that name? What happened on that date? What's behind the names of the main streets in downtown Buenos Aires? It's hard to believe, but those were burning questions of an American recently arrived in Buenos Aires. I wanted to know all I could about my adopted country and found the streets to be a mystery; even the most educated of my friends gave me blank looks when I asked. So began the project of finding out about the people behind the street names.
