Goodbye Italy, Hello Argentina!

It very sad that I will be leaving Italy in less than 24 hours, but I am beyond excited to start my semester abroad in Argentina. In Argentina, I will be taking intensive Spanish classes for the first four weeks, Monday through Friday for four hours! There are so many things I want to learn about Argentina and I cannot wait to start exploring. I am also very excited to improve my Spanish as well as live in a country where they use “Vos” and not “Tu”. This semester I hope to explore places like La Boca, which I heard is very beautiful and colorful during the day as well as Mendoza, which is known for its wine. You would think that by now, after a month in Chianti, I would be tired of wine, but it is the complete opposite! I am also very excited for our Holy Cross group trip to the Iguazú waterfalls, which are one of the seven wonders of the world!

What saddens me the most about leaving to Argentina is the cold weather! While its beautiful and high 70’s here in Italy, it will be around 50 degrees in Argentina. It will be such an adventure because half my clothes are summer and the other half is more fall weather. Overall, I am super excited to board this fourteen-hour flight to Argentina and finally begin exploring and immersing in the Argentinian culture. Wish me luck this semester abroad and stay tuned for more blog post and updates abroad! Thank you for reading.
