Summary Miguel Rep is one of Argentina's most famous cartoonists, and he knows his way around Buenos Aires as well as his way around a drawing easel. In this program, he sketches views of city landmarks and of his favorite bohemian haunts. In the process, he helps beginning Spanish speakers learn how to describe aspects of urban geography-from cafes to waterfronts to public buildings-while other Buenos Aires residents do their part to usher viewers through the city and the language. Featured locations include the Plaza de Mayo, the cemetery of Recoleta, the culturally rich barrio of Boedo, and the Plaza San Martin
