Hola Todas! I know it's been awhile, but things have been a little hectic around here lately. We found out that Carnaval is more of a Brasilian (Brazil) celebration and there really isn't all that many fiestas or gatherings in Argentina. But four of us including me went to see a traditional Tango Show two weekends ago at a place called Bar Sur (South Bar) which is one of the oldest tango establishments in Buenos Aires in the barrio (or neighborhood) of San Telmo which is known for its Tango and lively theater and arts scene. And on the night we went it just so happened to be their 98th Anniversary of Bar Sur and we received complementary champagne. This night was amazing, we wined and dined and not only watched some of the best tango ... read more

Where do I even start? So much has happened since my last entry that I don't even know where to begin to cover it all! But here it goes. When we left off, I told everyone we would be going to the beach this weekend, but plans got pushed back since Carnaval, which is like their Mardi Gras, starts tonight! So were saving the big beach trip weekend to Uruguay for this coming weekend: Feb. 8-10. Alright, I've been attending intensive Spanish classes for a week now, although to be honest they were not so intensive as we thought they would be. We only had class from 2-4pm everyday and it was basically an introduction to the city and the language of Buenos Aires. You see, here they speak Castellano a dialect of Spanish. So ... read more

Hola Todos! There's a private blog feature on here and before I use it I just want to make sure who all can see it. I invited only my close friends to be able to see my private blogs, so if you can see this message respond to it so that I know just who can see it and who can't. And to you others who weren't invited, if you can see this, well there's just some things you shouldn't/probably don't want to know. Les Amo, Caleb... read more

TODAY WAS AN ADVENTURE AND A HALF!!!! It was a long day today we took a Spanish pre-test, a 2hr written, which I placed into the advanced group, and a 15 minute oral exam but we went two by two so the oral took 2hrs as well because I was in the last two to go. Then we missed our stop on the bus back home and went WAYYYYYY out in the ghetto suburbs to the bus station had to walk a couple of blocks and catch another one going back, IT TOOK TWO HOURS IN ALL. But hey I guess I got a cheap tour of that side of town. AND THE DAY IS STILL NOT OVER! I am going to eat dinner, then shower, get ready, and were all going to go out ... read more

Hola Todos! Hello Everyone! I have been going going going since I got here! Our flight was delayed in Charleston until 6, and we almost missed our connecting flight in Atlanta to Buenos Aires (referred to as BA from here on), but made it just in time. We flew all night on Saturday and arrived in BA on Sunday Morning about 11am, their time. Speaking of time, I am three hours ahead here, not one like I thought it was going to be, so it's 4pm here now, and 1pm at home. The owner's of the two houses or residencias we are staying in met us at the airport with a bus, and then we drove directly to the houses, which are HUGE by the way. They are both on Paraguay St. and the one I ... read more

This is my new blog for my semester abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I will post pictures, videos, and diaries here every so often about what I've been doing, where I've been, neat/interesting facts I've learned, and you will be able to travel along with me in a sense. You will also be able to track my progress by map when I go on excursions or travel to Chile, Peru, and Paraguay the last three weeks I am there. I will be flying out of Charleston on January 19th at 5pm and will arrive in Buenos Aires, Argentina the next morning. I will be returning to the US on May 27th, three days before my 21st Birthday! I can't wait to go and I can't wait for everyone to be able to "travel" along with me! ... read more
