Semester Abroad: Bienvenidos a Buenos Aires, Argentina

June 24th, 2016 vmoret18


Finally in Buenos Aires, Argentina! After a long 14-hour flight from Rome I arrived in Argentina at 6:40 am. I was feeling super nervous because my friend and I were going to be immediately split and sent off to our host family. At that moment I thought that I had bitten more than I could chew and just wished I were home! Thankfully, everything went very smoothly and my host mom is very nice.

Once I arrived she, Maria,  showed me around the house and even made me breakfast. So far, I was happy about everything until the nervousness began again. By noon I had to be ready because I was going to be picked up by the university director, Nico, in charge of Holy Cross students and I was finally going to meet the students who I will bond with for the next five months.

For lunch we had milanesa, which is very typical food here. I would sum it up to something similar to breaded meat (ex. extra-large chicken nugget), but it is actually very delicious. The first lunch was a little quiet because we were all tired and new to each other, but as the evening unfolded things got better. So far I can say that day one in Argentina has been great and I am so excited for the adventure to begin.
