Coffee with Evita and Juan

<p>Lorenzo Pepe, director of the Juan Peron institute, gestures as he sits next to a statue of former Argentine President Juan Peron at the "Un cafe con Peron" (A coffee with Peron) restaurant in Buenos Aires May 8, 2011. Coffee and politics have long mingled in Buenos Aires' famous corner cafes, but the Peronist bars are drawing a new crowd of politicians, youth activists and curious tourists as the country gears up for a presidential election in October. Although he was reviled by his critics as an authoritarian and was forced to live in exile for almost two decades, Peron remained Argentina's leading political figure from his first presidential term in 1946 to his death in 1974.
