Postcards from B.A.: The obelisk

As I reported a few weeks ago, gay Dallas radio host Rick Vanderslice headed to Buenos Aires for the balance of the year, although he continues to host his Rational Radio show, Conversations with Rick Vanderslice, via Skype every Monday thought Friday at 2 p.m. Here’s Rick’s postcard from his first few weeks in B.A.

“Here I am at the Great Obelisk in the center of B.A. It was built in the 1930s to commemorate where the Argentinian flag was hoisted for the first time. Some 10 streets converge on this site, including the 9th of July Avenue which locals claim is the widest boulevard in the world. I would not argue the point.”
