I don’t have much time for blogging lately, but this can’t go unmentioned….another sad episode for the City that Fades Away series.


and a different angle…these photos were taken on a hot summer day, late January 2007…inthe photo below, also note the small house next to the one on the corner.


Two buildings and an impressive mural…all illegally demolished. One of the buildings was the home of Pedro Benoit, architect and urban planner.

This deserves a much more extensive post, more than I have time for at the moment, but for those who read Spanish you can find more here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here.

This afternoon at 5pm there will be an event protesting the demolition.
