Ateneo bookshop

I have just returned from the one continent that has no native born writers (though it does have a few native born people). It also has one bookshop, as the Port Lockroy bookshop in the British Post Office sells a few books. I am, of course referring to Antarctica. However, en route we stopped in Buenos Aires and I managed to visit the Ateneo bookshop (featured in the Guardian), a former theatre, now a bookshop, an essential visit if you are in Buenos Aires. The stage that you can see at the back in my photo is a café and there is a good section of Argentinian fiction on sale.
