Over Semana Santa, a small group of us who stayed in the city took a day trip to Tigre. A 45 minutes, 3 peso train ride takes you to this cute little touristy port city outside the city. Situated on the delta, there are boat rides, picnic spaces, a nice boardwalk and tons of families escaping the city for the day.

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>
