It’s hard to believe I have already been in Argentina for 15 days. It feels so short and so long all at once. Orientation is over, and we are starting classes here. I am excited to have a routine and feel more like a resident of this city. I am already loving seeing different neighborhoods, learning how to hail the bondis (city buses), and getting to know the kids in the residence hall. This collection of photos are from some more walks around San Telmo, and the IES trips to an Estancia (ranch) and colorful barrio of La Boca in Southern Buenos Aires.
La Casa Rosada – where President Kirchner lives and works. It is free and open to the public!

I've been waiting to go to Buenos Aires since a high school trip to Valparaiso, Chile got me interested in the Southern Cone countries and I couldn't be more excited to finally be here. I'm from New York City, but am currently living in Saint Paul Minnesota, where I study International Studies, Anthropology and Political Science at Macalester College. I've been focusing my studies on identity politics and tourism, so living abroad in one of South America's most mixed and dynamic cities is perfect for me! I hope to continue to study identity politics and nation building in post conflict nations post graduation, but for now I keep busy with school, Model United Nations, watching movies, exploring new places, making DIY craft projects with my roomates and my job as the student photographer for Macalester.</span></p>
