"Like my novel's heroine, I fell madly for Plaza Serrano in Palermo Viejo, a hip Buenos Aires barrio. During the day, it's a nice place to relax at a sidewalk table with a café con leche; if it's a weekend, browse the stylish market stalls. After dark, the area becomes an outdoor party that demands you buy an enormous bottle of local beer, stake your claim on a section of curb, and join the fun. What's not to love?"
