I recently visited Buenos Aires for a week to celebrate the beginning of Summer. There, I went to incredible cafes, like Tortoni, and saw El Ateneo, a gorgeous bookstore in a 20’s cinema palace. I also saw a room lined with unicorn heads, Evita’s tomb at the Recoleta cemetery, a statue of Mafalda, one of my comic book sheros, and visited the Teatro Colon as well as museums such as the MALBA and the PROA. Traveling makes me feel alive, and inspires and informs my writing. As challenging as writing a book is, there’s nothing like taking a trip away from it to see it, and yourself, anew.
