We start our journey in La Boca, one of the most famous barrios in all of Buenos Aires. La Boca is the Mecca of Argentine fútbol. Here Diego Maradona played - he was arguably the best fútbol player in history.

Argentine Food and Culture Night at La Residencia. Here, CEA Campus Staff Pamela, is explaining the use of the popular Argentine tradition of Mate. Just like we have a coffee craze in the U.S., mate is used for energy and health.
Trying my first Mate! It was very refreshing and muy caliente! Argentine Food and Culture Night was a great success!
El Ateneo, the largest bookstore in South America, is housed in a former theater in the heart of Buenos Aires.
I couldn’t exactly put my finger on it but there was something very magnificent and beautiful about El Ateneo, full of history and knowledge.
Tango Night! Buenos Aires is the birthplace of tango, so of course we had to make our way to a Milonga, a tango lesson and show, in the barrio of San Telmo; one of the first stomping grounds of the Argentine Dance.
CEA-Buenos Aires students Lauren and Kyle, practicing their Tango faces during the Milonga Lesson. Muy Caliente!
Our culture professor and I, cutting a rug on the tango floor. She was impressed by my dancing skills, extra credit for sure!
Tigre Delta, about an hour north of the capital city of Buenos Aires. Here we experienced a boat ride through the various islands and rivers, even a traditional asado. Tigre is a great place to visit to escape from the busy city life for a day.
