Photos from Argentina (III)

This concrete fungus is the National Library of Argentina. The building is only about 15 years old but already in clear decline. It's a sad legacy of the institution once headed by Jorge Luis Borges. They do, however, allow you to take digital photographs of the newspapers and magazines--especially important in an environment in which one can never be sure how much longer the materials will last.
