Beautiful Bookstores: El Ateneo

If there is one thing we share here in Kang World it’s our love of books.  We are all bibliophiles in the truest sense of the word.  In fact if we could live in the Library of Congress we probably would.

I love books so much that when I go on vacation I would rather visit bookstores and libraries than scenic sites.  If I ever make it to Buenos Aires, Argentina, I want to visit the famous El Ateneo bookstore.  El Ateneo was built in 1919 and was converted from a theater into a book store in the early 2000s.  They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and all I can say is, “Wow!”
