Serenity in the City

Rachel Zalkind
November 11, 2014

As much as I’ve loved the “challenge” of adjusting to school and city life here, it has left me a bit stressed at times! Luckily, if you know where to go, there are places in the city that let you unwind and enjoy a little relaxation. One place I found with the help of my classmates was the Jardín Japonés (Japanese Garden) in Buenos Aires. (At the time I wrote this) Entrance is only 32 pesos, and well worth it. You’ll enjoy koi ponds, exotic plants, and Japanese architecture. In a matter of moments, your city-induced stress will dissolve as you’re transported to a tranquil setting reminiscent of Japan. Beyond the garden itself, there are also opportunities to learn about Japanese culture through the tea house, reading room, gift shop, and more!

I&#39;m a Colorado girl who has fallen in love with Northern California while attending Santa Clara University. If you&#39;re curious, I&#39;m a junior working towards a degree in Marketing with minors in Entrepreneurship and International Studies. This fall I&#39;m trading the comforts of campus for the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I&#39;m excited to test out city living and carry over my interest in photographing, eating good food, and exploring as much as possible!</span></p>
