With mid-terms underway, the weather getting chillier, and a seasonal flu going around, things have been a bit hectic for me lately in Buenos Aires.  Amidst all the hustle and bustle these past few weeks, I was eager for a change of pace.  Buenos Aires is a city of immigrants, where new and old communities of many different cultures are constantly mingling and creating new spaces.  There’s always something new to try or explore or see, and this week I really enjoyed trying new foods and escaping into the tranquility of the Japanese Gardens.

This week I decided to spend a day wandering through more of Recoleta and Palermo, where I managed to stumble across a few really extraordinary places (no surprise in Buenos Aires)! I started the day with a self-guided record store tour in mind. I’m no music expert, and I know very little about Argentine music, but I love the atmosphere of a second-hand record store. I was eager to spend a few hours sifting through various collections, hopefully learning a little more about what’s popular here.
