First Glimpse of the City

August 14, 2013

The first couple weeks in Buenos Aires have been overwhelming but amazing. Little by little, parts of the city are becoming more familiar to me. Within these first couple weeks, we’ve taken tours of different parts of the city including Recoleta and Boca, as well as a trip to San Antonio de Areco, a farmland area a couple hours north of Buenos Aires. Spending a day on the estancia was great, and I was surprised by how much I appreciated being out of the busy city for a little while.

However, my passion for languages and different cultures has driven me to study Spanish as well, and I am thrilled to be studying in Buenos Aires. Having never been to South America, I cannot wait to explore a new place and improve my Spanish skills while being immersed in a completely new environment. I&rsquo;ve read so much about Argentina&rsquo;s rich culture, from the striking landscape of Patagonia to the vibrant music and dance that is tango, that I&rsquo;m now ready and eager to discover it all for myself. I love traveling, I&rsquo;m a huge foodie, and I love taking pictures, so I am very excited to capture my abroad experiences through photography and share them with you!</span></p>
