He had just had a street named after him. Now, The Prague Post's blog Colophon followed his traces in several places - beach, library, apartment residences, barbershop.
Bolano lived in several apartments just blocks from the beach. They are for the most part [nondescript], with no plaques yet to mark his erstwhile presence. The streets were empty by the time we found the apartments, as most were taking siesta. Yelps and laughter from the beach was audible as we snooped around, snapping photos of what might have been Bolano’s barber, just across the street from one of his apartments.
