I have participated in many exchanges abroad with many different programs, but never encountered one quite like this one. The in-country support from our program director, Gabi, was amazing from the start. Before arriving in Argentina, she answered any and all of my questions, making me have zero worries about living thousands of miles away from home. I was impressed with the number of trips we took through the program (my favorite being to Iguazu falls!). I felt like through the program we were able to experience many things that may have been overlooked or missed has I traveled alone or without a program.
The best part of Argentina for me was the people. From my host family to strangers on the street, I found the locals to be welcoming and excited to show me the real Argentina. My favorite memory was actually my taxi ride to the airport on my last day in the country. The Taxi driver saw I was sad to leave the place I had called home for 4 months. He ended up driving me on a "city tour" and making sure I saw all the landmarks I might have missed. Before reaching my final destination, the taxi driver ordered me Choripan and Alfajores so my last meal in Argentina could be as authentic as possible. This taxi ride truly captured the Argentine spirit.
