  1. Hey Elisa,

    I hope you don’t mind my random message, but I love reading your blog posts about your time in Argentina. I’m currently writing a book about the legacy of Eva Perón, and I’m collecting people’s stories as to how she inspires and interests them. It would be lovely to chat with you about Eva’s presence in BA (and even more lovely if you’d like to contribute a story to the book).

    If you’re interested, please get in touch either by e-mail (theevitaproject@hotmail.co.uk) or Facebook (www.facebook.com/TheEvitaProject).

    Thanks a lot. I hope to hear from you 🙂
