When I first received an invitation to visit Argentina, I really didn’t know what to expect. It’s seemingly always been overshadowed in the media by neighboring Brazil, so I really had to do my research to see exactly what I was going to experience. After about an hour of scavenging through Google, I realized that I needed to accept the invitation.
This would only be my second time visiting South America and I was very eager to discover a different country and culture. Over the years, I had heard many positive things about Buenos Aires and Argentina as a whole, but I had yet to experience them first hand. I spent countless hours researching various regions of the country and was most excited to put my four years of Spanish language studies to use.
Upon my arrival to Buenos Aires, I quickly became familiar with the enormity of the city. With a population of approximately 12 million people, it is easily one of the largest cities I’ve ever visited, second only to Sao Paulo.
