What Ph.Ds in Spanish are actually good for: translating pop songs into Spanish and then recording your own covers of them with your ukulele.

The Cementerio de la Recoleta, built around the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Pilar, dates from the early 1700s. When the order of monks that erected the church and camposanto disbanded in 1822, the governor of Buenos Aires inaugurated the site as the city’s first public cemetery. Since then, many famed Argentines have been interred there, including soldiers, politicians, writers, artists, actors, and the irrepressible Eva Perón.
Cemeteries usually command respect from passersby, and this extensive marble maze more than most. Despite the bright winter sunshine, the bustle of traffic in the surrounding streets, and the boisterous crowd of tourists at the gate, the narrow, mausoleum-lined walkways immediately diffused all the city energy into a melancholy stillness. We spoke and stepped softly, timid amongst the thousands of eyes that watched silently from their sepulchers of glass, marble, and bronze.
