In the Past 10 Days . . .

In the past ten days I have: Spent about 60 hours traveling by bus around Argentina:     Been at the border of three countries: Gone on a boat ride under some of the tallest and most beautiful waterfalls in the world: Taken a bus through the jungle: Climbed a mountain: Rappelled down a 760-foot cliff:[…]

¿De dónde sos?

Ever since I arrived in Buenos Aires, I have been asked at least a few times each day where I'm from. (For those of you who speak Spanish, in Argentina they use "vos" instead of "tú," meaning that "de dónde eres" becomes "de dónde sos"!) But it wasn't until this past Monday that I truly[…]

This week, I've spent most of my time packing, sorting out final details, and getting excited[…]

However, there is one thing that they expected: Chinese language.[…]
