Just in case you are headed to BA or thinking about it.....this article is informative:
Omegaet, I subscribe to the New York Times and I did read the article in the travel section on the cemetery. I recalled you recently posted a similar blog entry.

Did you submit the information to the NYT? Is that your day job?
Funny. No, writing for the NYT is not my day job.The Recoleta Cemetery is a very popular site for locals and visitorsalike.....actually the entire park is pleasant and popular.

I'm sure we walked by this building at least once or twice
We stayed at The Poetry Building. We loved having an apartment and rooftop pool. Highly recommend it. This time, we will try the LL property-Bobo Hotel. Can't wait to go! I think this time we will do El Tigre or Colonia. Flyg-did you visit either?
b...we did not visit either...thanks for the recommendation of the poetry building--if we go back with a group again, this would be a great base... efg
