The Book Fair

We stood in a 7 blocks queue to get to the 32nd Buenos Aires Book Fair Only about 30 minutes wait, walking most of the time as they had a dozen ticket booths.

The fair is huge, you noticed there were people around but it wasn´t crowded. As I usually go to the library I didn´t buy any novels, but I bought a book about an old hotel here. I´d always wondered about its history as it belonged to a time of extreme wealth in my country (beginning of last century) and there are bound to be some charming stories in it. Also got a book about turning 40 ( :rolleyes: if you wish here ;) ) Looks quite funny. :D

I´ve gone to the book fair every year for ages. I still have the 9th Fair bookmark.
