LOCATION

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Stretching from middle of South America all the way down towards Antarctica, Argentina is as diverse as its landscape.  The Andes Mountains are in the west with the beautiful ski town of San Carlos de Bariloche while the fertile Pampas or plains are in the east with the capital city of Buenos Aries.  Argentina is the largest Spanish speaking country in the world and is a wonderful place to learn Spanish for those wanting to travel to South America.  The culture of Argentina has a European flair in the cities and the rough and rugged style of self-reliance in the countryside.  The food is also a mix of European and native cultures.  Aside from dishes commonly seen in Europe, the native dishes include asado (Argentine Barbaque), locro (mixture of corn, beans, bacon, onion, and gourd) and dulce de leche (a caramel jam).  Argentina is a wonderful alternative for traditional study abroads.  For those wanting adventure with style, look no further than Argentina.
