When typing “Buenos Aires attractions” into Google, over 50 choices pop up.  Needless to say, I am not going to be bored this fall semester.  From museums to gardens to parks to statues, the capital city of Argentina has plenty to offer.

I’m two days away from boarding a 10 hour flight to Buenos Aires and I couldn’t be more excited!  And, if you ask me if I get nervous performing onstage in front of a packed audience or giving a speech to a large crowd, I can honestly say no.  However, I’ll admit that I’m freaking out at least a little about going abroad.  I know it’ll be the most amazing experience of my life to date though, just as every one of my previous abroad experiences has been.

For those who don’t know me, I’m a junior English and Spanish double-major at Wofford College and I aspire to work in broadcasting and journalism.  I couldn’t have picked a more amazing college to attend and I’ve been so blessed by the opportunities I’ve been given, especially through Wofford’s International Programs Office.  This will be my second time traveling abroad through Wofford (for Interim 2011 I studied abroad in Viña del Mar, Chile).  While I can’t wait to soak up all that Argentina has to offer, I’m hoping to make a quick visit over to Chile to visit my Chilean host family in Viña and 2 of my friends who are studying abroad there.

Below are a few of the many Buenos Aires attractions that I’m looking forward to seeing:



Teatro Colón is the main opera house in BA and it’s acoustically considered as one of the five best concert venues in the world.







La Recoleta Cemetery is located in the same neighborhood where I’ll be living.  Eva Peron, among many other famous Argentines, is buried here.




La Casa Rosada, also known as Casa de Govierno, is the executive office of the Argentine President.  The official residence of the President of Argentina is the Quinta de Olivos.  The current President of Argentina is Cristina Fernández de Kirchner who is serving her second term.
