This past week was the last was the last of my abroad program. It was so unreal. The level of work we had at school was unbelievable, so I feel like it took all our focus away, and before we even knew it, it was time to say goodbye to more people over the weekend. … Continue reading Farewell, So Long, Until We Meet Again
Hey everyone, This marked the week before finals week, and wow things are speeding up. Reality is setting in that we'll all be leaving soon, and, at least on my part, frantic lists of all the things I've yet to do have been made and crammed into my schedule. I can't wait to really be … Continue reading The Calm Before the Storm
Hola chicos, We are now on the brink of finishing school. Two weeks left, officially. What does that mean? Well, exams, papers, and projects! No doubt the moment we've all been waiting for. Well, this past weekend were our last national holidays, which gave us Monday and Tuesday off from school. I spent it a … Continue reading Winding Down
Hi readers, Surprisingly, this was a pretty ordinary week =) That being said, it's been very enjoyable. All that I really did was go to school, wherein we learned about the cheese-making process and later sampled over 10 kinds of Argentine cheeses in my Food & Wine class, finished watching "El Secreto de sus Ojos"--an … Continue reading A Day in the Life
Hello again, and so soon! This week was not too signficant in terms of the things I did, but the things I experienced were some of the richest yet.

We visited a museum in on of my classes on Tuesday, and then on Wednesday, had a huge asado (or barbeque) in our Food and Wine teacher's apartment. It was so hands on, fun, and delicious. I woke up feeling full and remained that way … Continue reading Studying Abroad: is the True Learning Experience Inside or Outside the Classroom?
Hi everyone. I have an excuse as to why I didn't write last week, I promise! It's not a "the dog ate my homework" deal. Ready? I went on the most amazing trip of my life. We had class like normal the week of the 26th, and actually, I took my first two exams then. … Continue reading Putting the Indescribable into Words

The window AC unit condensation sure is! This past Tuesday there was a huge thunderstorm, and the surrounding days had been cloudy and mildly rainy. In general, though, air conditioning is not all that common in Buenos Aires, and more often than not, the type of air conditioning that a building has is not central. … Continue reading If the Raindrops aren’t falling on Your Head…
Hi readers! I have to say, I don't really know where my week went. I feel like more than Buenos Aires being a port, it's a portal--one through which minutes just fly out of. And, because day-to-day life goes by so quickly, it means that so do longer periods of time. Well, without further ado, … Continue reading The Twilight Zone?
