Sunday March  20,  2011.  Back from El Calafate we stayed at Graciela's house. She's my cousin on my mother's side. Her dad & my mom were brother & sister. Graciela lives in a very old but comfortable house in a neighborhood reminiscent of Greenwich Village in NY.

                 

The house has an annex in the back, that was used as a studio, and a very nice backyard. Very near to where she lives, a series of graffiti covered walls has sprung, and visitors from all over come to see them. It reminded me of the walls of Belfast in Northern Ireland. Most of the comments are political in nature, but there's a lot of satire and social and religious observations.

              

              

              

           

The comparisons with Northern Ireland are inevitable. We walked quite a bit taking them all in. It was quite interesting.
