Susan's sketchbook log: Buenos Aires


I see dead people

El cementerio de RecoletaAs with Paris, so with the "Paris of South America": one of the top sights is a cemetery.

Eva Peron's is the most-visited monument, but hardly the most impressive. They sell 10-peso maps to find it, but of course, all you have to do is follow everyone else.

Also did a few rubbings on this paper, slinking around the tombs, feeling a bit guilty.

All the little domes and towers made for wonderful sketching, especially from the one or two stone benches in the shade of the very odd trees pictured.

I came back in the last few days I was here, and got a little more abstract about it (below).
