Pinball Machines

Bring on the old Pinball Machines. I found these on board of BUQUEBUS boat salling between Buenos Aires and Uruguay.

Waiting for Antarctica

Dispite of having to wait one week before I sale to see this big white continent, I find myself sitting calmly in Ushuaia. I guess it’s been such a long time coming that few more days won’t mean much. Now, all I can hope for is that weather will be with me and I’ll be finally able to visit ‘white land’. I managed to get last-minute deal here in Ushuaia and will be joining “Quest for the Antarctic Circle” for 12 nights on board of ship called M/S Expedition . On the photo bellow it’s the red ship in port of...

DeepZoom the Argentinian style

When I saw this on the San Telmo Market in Buenos Aires I immediately remembered the projects we’ve been doing in my previous work at Microsoft with Creative Solutions Team. I couldn’t help myself and had to find out more about this ‘artwork’. After a brief chat with the creator, it turned out to be a photographer who uses mainly his photo collection to make these collages in Photoshop. Mystery solved, I said to myself. I took couple of photos and moved on. I know that boys & girls at Creative Solutions will have fun seeing this...

The best milk in the world

I’ve seen this in the kitchen of my friends family living in Buenos Aires that I had a pleasure to visit. So, the lose translation is following: English: “The best milk in the world is the woman’s one… Packaging Says It All.” Slovakian: “Najlepsie mlieko na svete je zenske… Vsimnete si to uz hned ako uvidite obal.”

Street advertising in Buenos Aires

There were couple of street advertisements that have caught my attention. This first one was for me the best I’ve seen while strolling through the streets. It’s clean, cute and tells the message well.   This second one made me laugh out loud while waiting for train inside one of the Subte (metro / tube / subway) station. Let me tell you that design didn’t impress me at all. It was the additional text that some ‘creative or frustrated’ person wrote on top of it with black marker. Text goes like this: ‘cada persona es un...

Breast-feeding Virgin Marry or things you could witness in San Telmo Market

Finally I’ve seen religious statue that I like. Virging Marry in her full glory looking after Jesus. Who ever made this little statue has my respect! I also find out that Vatican approves breast-feeding images of Virgin Marry, so I should be safe from any inquisition, right!?   Next I came across this TV bellow. I think photos explain it all. Made me smile big time. Anyone needs second-hand TV?   Lots of other cool stuff to be found on the Sunday Market.

Santiago Alonso: Paisaje Adentro

One of the exhibitions I’ve seen in Buenos Aires was by Santiago Alonso called Paisaje Adentro (I could loosely try to translate this to ‘Landscape Inwards’). I liked his pen drawings with its lines and textures creating more complex visual landscapes.

Entering Argentina with a single ticket & non-chip passport

One of my big concerns was entering Argentina. First of all I have to come back to a fact of getting on the plane at all. As I’ve read and been warned by people, that without having return or onward ticket from/to South America, the airline will most probably refuse my plane boarding. Pretty worrying fact, if they happily sell you the single ticket anyway. I was flying with Air Europa from London to Madrid then waiting 2 hours at Barajas to board my plane to Buenos Aires. Despite of all warnings, I’ve decided to take a risk and go with...

Flight to Argentina with Aerolíneas Argentinas

Waiting in Barajas Madrid, sitting by the window and checking my big Jumbo Plane, which would take me to South America. I still find it amazing how such a big, heavy flying monster can actually take off, fascinating for the laic eye. Argentinian Airlines were good to me. Think any English only speaker might not say the same, as on such a long flight they’ve put only one movie, all in Spanish and with old style TVs in corridor. Dream on about luxury of having your own TV in the seat in front of you with your own selection of entertainment. I...
