Colectivaizeishon: The Brit Who Took All The Buses In Buenos Aires, is a non-fiction book and documentary project in which Daniel Tunnard takes all 141 buses in the city of Buenos Aires. The book and film combine laugh-out-loud
humour, quirky historical asides and unlikely autobiographical anecdotes, and is a wonderfully evocative piece about the city of Buenos Aires.
Colectivaizeishon is an original blend of absurd travel log, little-known histories, and personal memoir, written In a witty, sensitive and captivating style. In August 2009, Buenos Aires-based British writer Daniel Tunnard set out to take all 141 buses in the city of Buenos Aires. A combination of bad weather, a bad back and encroaching sense of pointlessness conspired to make him give up the idea after just six buses. In September 2011, with more time and better organization on his side, he made his second attempt, and at the time of writing he's one sixth of the way through and expects to be finished by March 2012. The story Is already being serialized in a twice-weekly column in the Argentine newspaper La Razón.
