Buenos Aires - Latin American Societies & Cultures
Come one, come all on this adventure of a lifetime! I'm Elizabeth, known to many as Liz and Avocado by some. Originally from Northern California, I am currently studying Communication Studies and American Culture at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor. I've decided to take my education beyond the bounds of the United States and head to Buenos Aires, Argentina!! Follow me along this journey as I navigate a new country and try to remember Spanish!
This past week, I travelled to Chile, specifically the cities of Santiago and Valparaiso. The “spring” break was not only an opportunity to experience another South American culture, but also a time to reflect upon my experiences in Argentina.
Moving from California to Michigan for university, I know the process of settling into a new place very well. It’s all a bit much moving to a completely new place where you know no one and must find your rhythm, however after a few weeks I feel like I am finding my footing.
After all the research I did prior to arriving in Buenos Aires, there’s still so much to learn about the city. Firstly, it is in fact a city. I’m not quite sure what I pictured before arriving but it was not a massive and sprawling metropolis that I viewed out of the window of the airplane.
