Marina Palmer: As for the news that you are selling La Cupula, it brings up mixed feelings of sadness and nostalgia for all the wonderful times I spent there. You were so generous to share its magic with us all. But I totally understand and support your decision to let it go - in fact, I think I said as much in my last email to you. It was certainly sounding like a lot of hard work lately. Hopefully this means you'll be able to go down to BA in future and enjoy a holiday, rather than spending your time fixing things endlessly.

Robin Tara: The end of an era. You are thoughtful to let us all know as we have such fond feelings and memories of times spent there. Thank you, Pryor

Joe Petrisko: Indeed, yours was an absolutely classic place to stay in Buenos Aires, & is the locale which gave me my first introduction to the city. It was such a great place that I decided after my first stay it was THE only place I wanted to stay when I visited Buenos Aires - until I finally moved there myself in 2006. I shall be eternally indebted to you for your generosity & hospitality in letting me use your apartment every second half of November all those years. continue reading  


Excerpts from the Guest Book (only available the early years)

Joseph Bain (1997): Wonderful place! Thanks for putting this book together. I shall return.

Janis Kenyon (1998): It was an incredible month in this heavenly place.

Sandra Cameron (1998): Living at La Cupula has been an incredible experience for me. How kind of you, Pryor, to rent out your beautiful Argentine home to tango lovers at such a reasonable rent. I cannot thank you enough.

Maida Zanaboni (1999): Pryor, this place is Everything everyone has told me it is. I’m very glad to have the opportunity to have had this experience. Thanks much!

Robin Tara (1999): Pryor, I’m sure everyone who stays here in Tango Heaven blesses you for providing an elegant, well appointed apartment done with taste & style — hope I can relive the experience soon.

Susan Bullock (2000): Thank you for giving a travelling opera singer such a comfortable home here in Buenos Aires. It has been a great experience living here on top of the world and I hope to repeat it in the future.

Victoria Livengood (2001): Pryor, Thank you so much for providing me with this lovely “home away from home.” I simply adored my stay here and found it inspiring to my performances at the Teatro Colón. I hope to return often and soon. All the Best! Metropolitan Opera, NYC.
