Lonely Planet review

Here’s a fun fact for die-hard fans of The Little Prince : Antoine de Saint-Exupéry once lived in an apartment here in the glittering Galería Güemes, now a shopping gallery and theater complex. The French pilot/writer met his wife, an El Salvadorean painter, at a demonstration in the streets of Buenos Aires, and Night Flight was based on his experience flying post in South America.
