Back in March 2010, I came to Argentina for what was to be a four-month trip. A year later, I live and work in Buenos Aires.
I’m a Persian twenty-something year-old girl who lived most of her life in U.S. I love to travel (who doesn’t?) and have seen quite a bit of Europe in the past few years. Practicing Spanish and exploring a region new to me were my motives for coming to Argentina. Its rich culture, pumping night scene, varied landscapes and easy access to other countries are what made me stay.
When I completed my one-year anniversary here, I crazily thought that I hadn’t done much during the past 12 months. That I hadn’t made good use of the time I’ve been here to travel, visit museums, bond with new friends. Then I looked at the 2,000 photos I’ve accumulated and reminisced of all that I had experienced.
Photos are worth more than a 1,000 words and are a great way to share my experience with friends, family, and anyone else interested. Argentina will be as much a focal point for this blog as it is for my life right now, but this isn’t meant to be a travel guide or exhaustive travel journal. Just one snapshot, one story.
Keep in touch!
I’d love to get to know those reading this blog, whether through your comments, e-mails, or tweets.
