weekly photo challenge: masterpiece

I have paid tribute to Mafalda in Buenos Aires with visiting the parc named after this rebel character. It was located in the north-western part of the city. I have reached it by foot walking from the post Palermo-soho region. I have to admit it was middle of nowhere but it is a real masterpiece.

Mafalda is a comic strip written and drawn by Argentine cartoonist Joaquín Salvador Lavado, better known by his pen name Quino. The strip features a 6-year-old girl named Mafalda, who reflects the Latin American middle class and progressive youth, which is concerned about humanity and world peace and rebels against the world bequeathed by their elders. The strip ran from 1964 to 1973 and was very popular in Latin America, Europe, Quebec, and in Asia, leading to two animated cartoon series and a book.

  1. Mafalda was the first strip I read and was too small to understand everything. It’s still a great pleasure and fun to read it as an adult 🙂 Thanks for sharing the photos.
