Where In The World (err..South America)?

Studying in Buenos Aires will serve as a great hub for travel to regions of South America I have yet to visit. I will of course return to Colombia for a few months, for the 3rd year in a row before studying in Buenos Aires.

But once in Buenos Aires, I can see myself visiting most of these places.

Montevideo, Uruguay

Porto Alegre, Brazil


“Porto Alegre is the state capital of Rio Grande do Sul and the biggest urban agglomeration of south Brazil. The perfect blend of Brazilian-Portuguese and Platinian-Spanish cultures, added to a strong European heritage gives the city a unique background within Brazil.

“A vast bazaar of illegal weapons, counterfeit goods and illicit substances is spread out for sale in the markets of Ciudad del Este

, Paraguay’s smuggling capital. The city is conveniently located at the convergence of the borders of three countries (Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay), making it the ideal transit point for tax free and often illegal goods headed to all points beyond.”

Santiago De Chile, Chile

“Santiago de Chile is a modern metropolis with a shiny face and has one of South America’s most dynamic economies. At the same time, struggling street vendors board city buses to hawk everything from pins to ice cream, and housemaids ride for hours to scrub floors and change nappies in exclusive suburbs. First and foremost, smog-blighted Santiago is a city of commerce, but there are rewards for the patient traveler – its thriving culinary and artistic enclaves are a joy to discover, and less than an hour away are world-class ski resorts, famous beaches and the colorful port city of Valparaíso.”

Cordoba, Argentina
