Buenos Aires by amandaekeats on 11 September 2007 10:59am
 
Its been just over a year now since I got back from 4 months living in Buenos Aires and I wanted to get peoples thoughts on the city.

I absolutely loved it but the air was so bad it caused lots of problems for my usually mild asthma. The drivers are insane and do not stick to lanes which is slightly terrifying but the people were incredible and the sights very impressive. I am so glad I speak Spanish because I don't think I would have got nearly as much out of it if I didn't.

One tip I would offer to anyone travelling abroad is to learn basic conversation. Often, you will encounter people who speak English but they will be so impressed that you are trying at least. Metting the people who live there and not just other travellers always offers the best insight into any place.

Happy travels!

Amanda
