Argentina: Biblioteca Nacional

It veers a little from the usual subject of this blog, but not too much: Clarin has a photo slideshow of the wonderful Argentine national library today, where I was lucky enough to spend a little time researching the 1976-1983 dictatorship, and which definitely holds memories for me. The library is a huge concrete pile, certainly not pretty, and staffed with the standard officiously bureaucratic types you often find in Latin American institutions, but it does have wonderful views from the inside.

Silencio, biblioteca
