Puerto Madero and the Ecological ReserveBuenos Aires, Spring 2009

[gallery link="file"] These are a few pictures of Puerto Madero, which is the newest barrio of Buenos Aires, and the ecological reserve that is next to it. I could pass a whole day just wandering around this area, and I hope you enjoy the photos!

  1. Hi! I am a student at BYU-Idaho, and in my humanities class we are studying globalization and it’s effects. So I was wondering if you could get people you know to take a short survey at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/151477/globalization-survey so we can get a wide variety of feed back from other countries. Thanks so much!

  2. My son leaves for Buenos Aires next week :)
    We are all very excited. He just received his housing assignment today. I was hoping that you may have an idea of this location and maybe some insight to that area.

    the letter does not mention housing type or family. Is that something held private or do you assume it is a single woman?
    I have been reading all your blogs, thank you
    What do you suggest as a good hostess gift?
    Have a wonderful year readjusting to America

  3. Hello Sloane,
    I’m excited for your son, too! He’s going to have a great time, guaranteed. My housing assignment only listed a woman, and I did end up only living with a single woman and a roommate, who was also listed on my form. I would assume that your son will live with a woman, but it is possible that she will have other family members staying with her or dropping in for a visit from time to time.

    I had some IES friends living on Uriburu around where your son will be, and it’s a very nice area. There’s a lot of nice apartments, cafes, and stores near there. From the address, he will be living on the fourth floor of an apartment building. He will be about a 25 minute walk from the IES center (which is much closer than a lot of students), or he could take a bus ride for about 10 minutes. He’ll be right by some main streets, so it will be easy for him to find his way around.

    For my host mom, I got her some postcards and things from my city (Minneapolis). I found some of it right in the airport, which was convenient. I would suggest something like that, where she will have a momento from where you are from, a little decoration for her house, or maybe some typical American foods/snacks.

    Thanks for your post, and I wish your family the best of luck! Let me know if you have any more questions.
