Ifsa-Butler sponsored activities
I would say I am pleased with the Ifsa-Butler sponsored activites and it is a great way to partcipate with friends, while integrating with the Argentinian culture. I definitely take advantage of the opportunities given to me and sign up when I get the chance. Signing up is another issue, one has to really keep track of when the events are posted because they get full immediately, but if you want it, simply be strategic.
Through Ifsa-Butler, I have been able to participate in a variety of event. I have played spanish futbol with Argentinians. I have taken a tango class and was able to see others dance tango, which was wonderful. I have done biking to Tigre and even did kayaking another day. Museum visits is a must and I registered for a guided tour of MALBA. Singing up for teatro has given me the opportunity to both enjoy Argentinian art and explore gorgeous venues. I have see a couple teatros actually including 33 variaciones, La Casa de Bernarda Alba,and con Requiem de Guerra de Benjamin Britten.
I am not sure, if I have a favorite activity thus far because they are all enjoyable and unique. The activites are fun and display the Argentinian culture in a perspective maybe not aware to all students. When in Argentina, do as the Argentinians/porteños do and why not participate in events they organize!
