Meet the Author

Wayne Bernhardson first visited Buenos Aires in 1981, during a military dictatorship, and he has stuck with the Argentine capital through the good times and bad. Returning repeatedly to broaden his knowledge of both the city and the country in general, he fits in well enough that Porteos constantly stop him in the street to ask for directions. He owns an apartment in Buenos Aires, near the Palermo botanical gardens, and spends four to five months in South America every year.

Before dedicating himself to guidebooks, Wayne earned a PhD in geography at the University of California, Berkeley, but abandoned academia for a perpetual Latin American road trip. This third edition of Moon Buenos Aires is one of a long list of Moon guides that Wayne has authored, including handbooks to Guatemala, Chile, Argentina, and Patagonia.

In addition, Wayne has written for magazines and newspapers, including Trips, the San Francisco Chronicle, the American Geographical Society's Focus, Business Traveler, National Geographic Traveler, Latin Trade, and Travel Holiday. He often gives slide lectures on destinations he covers in his books.

When not in South America, Wayne resides in Oakland, California with his wife Mara Laura Massolo, their daughter Clio Bernhardson-Massolo, and their Alaskan malamute, Malbec (named for Argentina's signature red wine). Wayne can be reached directly by email at southerncone@mac.com, through his website, guidebookwriters.com, and his blog, southernconetravel.com.
