One of our first days in the city, our program sent us out in small groups of 3-4 with each group going to a different part of the city to explore and report back in a few hours. My group went to explore part of Belgrano.

  1. I love all the pictures!! Your house that your staying in is so cute and cozy. I adore the sunroom and rooftop, and the dogs!! So cute! I hope you are having a wonderful time, I miss you!

    • i know eh? A few days ago was Feliz Primavera, first day of spring and a celebration here, no school for the students of Argentina, but of course we had school cause we are only Americans in Argentina.
