Country roads… take me home

This week I’m writing a blog from Buenos Aires, Argentina! I’m visiting my friend who’s studying through IFSA-Butler’s BA program. I’m excited to observe the changes in these two major Latin American cities up against their personal histories of immigration, politics and social climate. For starters, Buenos Aires is much larger than Santiago. The layout of the city seems to be a little different as well- I don’t see any major Costanera centers and there seems to be generally less chain stores (where is my Jumbo and Unimarc, am I right?) The vibe seems to be a lot more old European and my Air BnB has a bidet. More to come as I explore the city tonight and learn what it means to be a chileno-porteno in my own context!
