A Tour of Mercados

Margot Kempczynski
September 3, 2013

One of the things I love about Buenos Aires so far is the abundance of outdoor markets around the city. The most popular ones seem to be those in the quaint center of Recoleta on Saturdays and Sundays, and the famous San Telmo market that happens every Sunday. I also stumbled upon a large outdoor market full of vegetarian, vegan, all-natural stands selling various organic foods and treats. All the samples of breads, olive oils, jams, not to mention the usually hard-to-find veggie burger, made this organic market one of my favorites. To top it off, it was in the parks of Palermo, home to the beautiful rose garden where tons of Argentines like to sit on nice days, eating lunch or sipping mate and whatnot.

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>
