International Book Fair in Buenos Aires

This is the entrance to La Rural where there was the 34th annual book fair.
On April 24-May 12, the largest book fair in the Spanish speaking world came to Buenos Aires for the 34th year. The Fería Libro came to La Rural Exhibition center (similar to a state convention center) that is about 5 blocks from my house in Palermo.

There were tons of books inside the convention mainly in Spanish, but there were several stands of books in German, English, and French. I went with Lindsay and Matt on a Saturday, but I didn't purchase anything (maybe I'm finally recovering my book buying addiction, probably not though).

It was a fun thing to do on a Saturday afternoon for AR$10, which is about US$3.
