Mini Biography
Ernesto Guevara de la Serna was born to a middle-class family in Rosario, Santa Fe Province, Argentina, on June 14, 1928. Disgusted by the corrupt Argentine military dictatorship, Guevara became a dedicated Marxist while in his teens. As a student he vowed to devote his life to revolutionary causes, and in 1953 he received a medical degree from the University of Buenos Aires. He left Argentina later that year to take part in a Communist revolt in Guatemala. There he adopted his revolutionary nickname and nom de guerre of "Che", the local slang for "pal." When the revolution in Guatemala failed the following year, Che fled to Mexico where he was introduced to another Communist revolutionary in exile, Fidel Castro.

Charles Darwin as much in Argentina as in Chile,... this photo is of the Christ Church Cathedral, Falkland Island, South Atlantic,............Falkland Islands wolf-like canine Warrah pre-dates human occupation
Bones found on West Falkland in 2010 by a boy then aged thirteen, which were subsequently kept for a while in the bottom of his grandmother’s wardrobe, may have narrowed down the search for an answer to a mystery which puzzled Charles Darwin when he visited the Falkland Islands in 1837.

Unquillo, Córdoba Province, Argentina, Guido Buffo
UNQUILLO.- En uno de los bordes de Unquillo, en el paraje denominado Los Quebrachitos, se levanta una capilla única en su estilo, dedicada a la memoria de Leonor Allende, esposa de Guido Buffo, pintor, esteta y un hombre de ciencia.
La capilla Buffo, construida en la cima de una montaña de mediana altura, domina una zona de tupida vegetación, que está en medio de unas de las reservas más importantes de la provincia.
Un río serpentea a pocos metros de su entrada; las aguas parecen arrullar el ambiente. Como se sabe, las tardes cobran colores nuevos en la montaña; los atardeceres tienen un sonido particular que se cuela por la puerta de la capilla, extraña a la arquitectura que domina este tipo de construcciones.
Quizá porque Buffo era un hombre de espíritu inquieto o porque el dolor en algunas personas se vuelve creativo, lo cierto es que la capilla mortuoria dedicada a la memoria de su esposa Leonor es una estructura en la que se reúnen formas clásicas con otras vinculadas con una visión cercana al esoterismo.
Desde afuera, 35 escalones separan la entrada de una suerte de explanada hecha en la montaña. Cuatro columnas sostienen la cúspide. Tardó nueve años en construirse (1941-1950) y en sus vitrinas, Buffo decidió que se guardaran las pertenencias más queridas por la pareja.
En verdad, su entrada de madera en forma ojival que repite la cúpula y en el interior una densa capa de nubes que simula un firmamento hablan de una mano dirigida por la fantasía de encontrar una réplica del edén en el que sus seres queridos lo estarían esperando.
La forma ovoidal domina la escena; una cruz tallada en una especie de campanario, sin campana, se vuelve una señal clara del sincretismo de este investigador con, al parecer, espíritu de alquimista, que pintó con la técnica del mural, utilizada por los renacentistas italianos. Imágenes de su fallecida esposa como de su hija las muestran en una actitud apacible.
Su arquitectura está desarrollada a partir de la forma de los capullos de cardo santo; para su acústica, pensó en el sonido que se siente al invertir un caracol de mar, ya que según este investigador podría escucharse el interior de la tierra.
En su entrada, sobre la izquierda, grabó sobre la pared la Quinta Sinfonía de Beethoven y la oración de Jesús en el huerto, tomada de la pasión según San Mateo, hoy virtualmente desaparecidas por el paso del viento.
Sobre las paredes interiores hay una línea de pinturas unidas por sus títulos: "Elogio a Dios", "Elogio al sentimiento" y "Elogio al intelecto", es decir, Guido Buffo reunió en la capilla tres facetas de su personalidad, el amor a Dios, a su familia y a la razón. Tres formas casi de deidades, por la importancia atribuidas en el recinto.
En el "Elogio a Dios", Buffo tomó una visión alejada del antropomorfismo y muestra a la creación como una burbuja de la que se desprenden seres del mundo animal, del mundo vegetal y del mundo mineral. Junto con esta imagen que cubre todo un sector de la capilla, fragmentos de la Biblia, escritos de Leonor Allende y una explicación sobre su obra en sentido amplio.
Palas Atenea
En otro sector descansa su "Elogio al sentimiento", donde Buffo propone una visión celestial donde su esposa, al lado de Palas Atenea, diosa de la sabiduría, contempla a su hija dormida, cuyo sueño, además, es velado por un puñado de ángeles. Al pie de este mural está la cripta donde hoy los tres, Leonor, Eleonora y Guido Buffo descansan. "Elogio al intelecto" no fue terminado.
Buffo incursionó en diferentes disciplinas que plasmó en su capilla. Por ejemplo, hay un péndulo que hizo del recinto un observatorio sismográfico. En efecto, en 1945, instaló el primer péndulo de Foucault que convirtió el recinto en un centro que pudo predecir sismos con 48 y 72 horas de antelación. Mientras terminaba la capilla su estado de salud empeoró y dejó unas palabras de despedida: "Necesito mantenerme en un estado de paz espiritual y quietud mental? Insisto en mi llamado de atención para que otros científicos, jóvenes, no anquilosados, continúen este estudio".
Buffo había nacido en Italia, Trevisto, el 12 de marzo de 1885, estudió en París, Turín, Venecia y con sólo 17 años asistió a la instalación del péndulo de Foucault, en el Panteón Nacional, de París. Llegó a la Argentina en 1910 y se radicó en las sierras de Córdoba. Leonor Allende nació en Córdoba el 11 de abril de 1883, fue una de las primeras periodistas cordobesas y falleció el 24 de marzo de 1931, a causa de tuberculosis. Tuvieron una hija, Eleonora, nacida el 25 de junio de 1917 y fallecida el 6 de septiembre de 1941.
Siete kilómetros separa la Capilla Buffo del centro de Unquillo, una ciudad que tiene belleza y arte, no sólo en sus solares sino también en sus artistas.

Pinturas y poesía .- Aunque últimamente la localidad de Unquillo haya figurado en las portadas nacionales por ser el lugar de nacimiento del tenista David Nalbandian, lo cierto es que Unquillo tiene un historial largo de personalidades conocidas que llegaron allí. Quizás el que ha dejado una huella más profunda, además de Guido Buffo, fue el pintor Lineo Eneas Spilimbergo, en cuya casa funciona hoy un museo que guarda obras de Egidi

Diario de Auguste Morisot 1886-1887

This diary narrates the experiences of the French traveller during his trip to the Orinoco. Through these pages, one discovers the impact that ?the colours and exuberance of the Caribbean tropics? had on the artist. Day by day, during 14 months, Auguste Morisot describes his experiences and encounters, as well as everything that surrounded him. Without a doubt the text allows us to meet with the Caribbean world of two centuries ago, from the perspective of an artist. Edited by Fundacion Cisneros and Editorial Planeta, 2002. Texts by Patricia Phelps de Cisneros and Alvaro Garcia Castro. Spanish. 168 pages. 75 black and white photos. Sofa cover. 24 x 17 cm

From, De Cusco a to Machu Picchu by train.Estación de Tren San Pedro The Freedom of Train Travel by German Sopena, Germán Rolando Sopeña (* 1946, Huinca Renancó, Córdoba - † 28 de abril de 2001, Roque Pérez, Provincia de Buenos Aires) fue un periodista y escritor argentino.
Mientras estudiaba Ciencias Políticas en la Universidad del Salvador, comenzó a ejercer sus primeras labores como periodista en publicaciones de la Editorial Abril. Tras obtener su licenciatura, partíó hacia Europa en donde se desempeñó como corresponsal de la citada editorial.
Radicado en París, obtuvo sus títulos de posgrado en el Instituto de Estudios Políticos de París y en la Universidad de la Sorbona. Apasionado del ferrocarril como era, realizó numerosos viajes en ese medio transporte, que años más tarde darían origen a su libro La libertad es un tren.
De regreso a la Argentina, ocupó funciones directivas en la revista Siete Días y fue jefe de redacción de la publicación Tiempo Argentino entre 1985 y 1986, tras lo cual ingresó al diario La Nación. Allí se desempeñó al frente de la sección de economía entre 1986 y 1992, y pronto se transformó en uno de los periodistas más reconocidos del diario. Tras ocupar los puestos de secretario de Redacción y prosecretario general de Redacción, en abril de 1999 recibió el nombramiento para hacerse cargo de la secretaría general de Redacción.
Además de desarrollar su labor periodística, Sopeña dedicó gran parte de su tiempo a la docencia. Enseñaba periodismo en la Universidad de Belgrano y recomendaba a sus alumnos desarrollar las seis virtudes ya propuestas por Italo Calvino: la levedad, la rapidez, la exactitud, la visibilidad, la multiplicidad y la consistencia.
Casado con Patricia Morgan, fue padre de dos hijas.
El 28 de abril de 2001, perdió la vida al estrellarse el avión Cessna en el que viajaba rumbo a la Patagonia. En el mismo accidente, fallecieron el entonces presidente del grupo Techint Agostino Rocca, el director de la Administración Nacional de Parques Nacionales José Luis Fonrouge y otras siete personas.
En el Congreso Nacional de Argentina hay un proyecto para que la Ruta Nacional 40 lleve el nombre de Sopeña, quien contribuyó en los últimos tiempos a la difusión y promoción de la Patagonia en general, y de esa vía de comunicación en particular.

Seeking by air and land Lighthouses in Argentina ....
Topic: Lighthouse Tour
About airplanes and lighthouse trips... Aviation is an activity of which Argentineans are very fond of. Specially if one takes into consideration not only the incredibly pleasant feeling of flying but at the same time the possibility of enjoying from an alternative view of terrific landscapes. In this matter, our country has very much to offer.Just a few days ago,

Falkland Islands wolf-like canine Warrah pre-dates human occupation

Bones found on West Falkland in 2010 by a boy then aged thirteen, which were subsequently kept for a while in the bottom of his grandmother’s wardrobe, may have narrowed down the search for an answer to a mystery which puzzled Charles Darwin when he visited the Falkland Islands in 1837.

 

 The Warrah puzzled Charles Darwin when he visited the Falkland Islands in 1837

 The bones, parts of three separate skulls, which were discovered on his parents’ farm by young Dale Evans, have been identified as belonging to the Warrah (Dusicyon antarcticus-australis) a wolf-like canine which once inhabited the Islands in great numbers but became extinct when the last one was shot in 1876.

Some stuffed examples of the animal survive in a few European museums, together with some skulls and other bones. These museum specimens show clearly that the Warrah was significantly different from any animal found in South America, but fail to answer the question about its origin posed by Darwin and by countless others since, because they belonged to animals that had been killed in the 19th Century.

Dale Evans’ find is remarkable because the bones he found in a dried up pond are the only ones in existence that belong to animals that apparently died naturally. Even more remarkable, carbon dating carried out in a leading forensic laboratory in the United States, places the one fragment from which a reading could be obtained at 1,000 years old.

The extermination of the Warrah, which was seen as posing a threat to the newly introduced sheep on the Falklands, was easy due to the animal’s apparent total lack of fear of humans. Charles Darwin reported that the gauchos with whom he made some excursions around the Islands told him that they would kill Warrahs by holding a piece of meat in one hand to attract the animal and a knife in the other with which to kill it.

There have been countless theories about how the Warrah arrived in the Falklands. Their readiness to approach man led to a common belief that this animal, the only endemic quadruped in the Falklands, might be descended from the semi-domesticated dogs belonging to the Yahgan indians who lived on the coast of the South American continent over three hundred miles away and might have been brought to the Islands in their canoes, though there is no concrete evidence of this ever happening. Other theories suggest their arrival on floating vegetation or maybe ice floes, though the lack of a similar animal on the mainland from which they are supposed to have come does tend to weaken these arguments.

While questions about the Warrah’s origin still remain, Dale Evans’ find and the subsequent discovery that the animal was present on the Falkland Islands at least seven centuries before the recorded arrival of man, does narrow down the historical focus considerably.
