This weekend I started off spring break by flying with the people on my program to Iguazú in northern Argentina. This entire area of Argentina is jungle and filled with amazing wildlife and, of course, the Iguazú Falls which is the world’s widest range of waterfalls (and most beautiful). Friday morning we met up with everyone at 7 a.m. at the airport in Buenos Aires, tired yet so excited for the jam-packed weekend. When we landed in Iguazú, we met our tour guide for the weekend, Pilar, and…

I never pictured having the possibility to go to Uruguay, but last Friday I did just that. That morning, I met my program at the ferry station downtown to catch our ride to Colonia, Uruguay for the day. The ferry was only one hour, and magical to say the least thanks to the incredibly comfortable chairs—I had a great nap! When we arrived in Colonia, our tour guide for the morning greeted us. He did the entire tour in Spanish to help us all practice listening. We learned a…

Spending a weekend in Mendoza, Argentina with three of your gal-pals is the best way to relax – the views are beautiful, the wine is delicious, and the air is simply happy. My three friends and I landed in Mendoza on Friday morning. Coming in just after sunrise, we got a beautiful view of the sun over the mountains when we landed. When we arrived to the hotel our jaws dropped, it was gorgeous. The bright blue pool, the green of the grape vines, the blue of the…

Every Monday night in Buenos Aires is always a bangin’ one, thanks to La Bomba del Tiempo (The Time Bomb) is an improvisational drum group that performs weekly at the Konex Cultural Center. I had heard many people talk about the show and how it was one of their favorite things to do while abroad here, so I knew I had to check it out. The show technically doesn’t start until around 8p.m., but we were advised to get there at 6:30p.m., just to be safe. It wasn’t…

The term “study abroad” is sort of skewed in the U.S. because everyone associates it with going to a foreign country, traveling, and having an extended vacation. What is forgotten about is the “study.” People forget all the time that they are actually living in Buenos Aires, attending school every day, and studying. While some people might be turned off by that thought, I’m here to tell you about my amazing classes I am taking abroad. Spanish First of all, I already finished all of my Spanish requirements…

During my long weekend off of school for Carnival, my friend and I took the extra time off to travel to Chile.  We visited the San Pedro de Atacama, Santiago, Valpraiso, and Viña del Mar. Each city was beautiful and filled with wonderful views, people, and food. I hope to make it back to Chile one day in the future! Kelsey B. is the Spring 2017 MOJO Blogger in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Since I’ve been in Buenos Aires, the most exciting part of my day is still deciding where I will be eating dinner that night or what restaurant I want to try next. Living in the beautiful neighborhood of Palermo, I only need to walk one block in any direction to find the next trendy, delicious restaurant I want to try. Here’s a list of my favorite restaurantsin Buenos Aires, Argentina. Las Cabras My roommate and I ate here on our very first night in the city and it was…

My first week in Buenos Aires is coming to an end. I can’t believe it’s only been a week and at the same time I can’t believe the week is already over. Arriving in the airport last Thursday I could not have been more clueless about my way around Buenos Aires, what I would be doing this week, and what my apartment and neighborhood would look like. Now, after days of exploring, meeting new people, and my first week of classes under my belt, I am well on…

Throughout my semester in Prague, I’ve been able to travel quite a bit and use most forms of Czech transportation. Prague has a great system of public metros, trams, buses, and trains. Here is a some basic information about the most common ways to get around. Tram The trams run on rails in the streets. Don’t cross the street if you see a tram coming, they usually won’t stop for pedestrians unless there’s a stoplight. Trams run 24 hours a day, with special night trams that come only every 20-ish…

We had a CEA excursion to the town of Český Krumlov, a three hour bus ride away from Prague. It was one of the cutest places I have ever seen, with the red rooftops and lush green hills. We had a walking tour, followed by a traditional Czech lunch and a private castle tour. After that, we had free time to explore the gardens and shops. I highly recommend this as a day trip!
