Daily Photo – A Harrods in Buenos Aires?
There are parts of Buenos Aires that are not too safe to walk around by yourself. This part was not so bad when I was there, but there were several abandoned stores around, including this Harrods. I was surprised to see such a nice store in a state of disrepair, especially after visiting its Valhalla-like anchor in London. Out front, there was a man playing the violin alone. It echoed around in a strange way through the acoustics of the tile, the roof, and the lonely streets. There was an Argentine rhythm he mixed into his playing that really transported me to another time and place.
