Buenos Aires continues to shine in the culture department. I mentioned some months ago the "Noche de los Museos." Since then they have also had a "Noche de los Librerias." And for the past few weeks there has been a major bookfair going on.
I went last weekend on a Saturday night. As I walked up the steps of the subway to reach street level, I was taken aback at the sheer number of people swamping the surrounding area. I've been to large conventions before, and using them as a point of reference, I would guess there were at least 20,000 people at and around this bookfair.
There was only one store at the fair that sold English books. So I got a book called "Blink" - so far its excellent.
All in all, I must say BsAs (as they abbreviate it for some reason) does encourage reading and other worthwhile activities. Well done!
Now, to the title of this post. I went to a pub last night and they had some live Irish music. Not only did they sing "Whiskey in the Jar" but a sister happened to be a guest singer. She was great!
The whole experience brought back a lot of memories of Irish Drinking Songs. For example:
Ah, what's not to love?
