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.
